Hot Chocolate with Stevia is the recipe you’ve been looking for if you’re trying to cut down on your sugar intake.  Now you get to still enjoy your hot cocoa without worry.  

“Because the best gift in life, is just having someone to drink hot chocolate with”
– Tessa Shaffer, Heaven Has No Regrets

The amazing thing about this recipe is that if you use organic cocoa powder, organic milk and stevia – hot chocolate is a healthy warm drink that’s actually good for you!  

Cocoa is a good source of iron, magnesium, manganese and zinc.  Here’s some more information on the benefits of cocoa. 

If you’re anything like me, you’ll always have the supplies on hand for this 3 ingredient hot cocoa.  

Europeans combined milk with chocolate and sugar in the 18th century, and hot chocolate has been creating warm memories ever since then.

Tips on making Hot Chocolate with Stevia:

1) Never leave the saucepan.  Milk can easily burn, so keep your eye on it. 

2) Stir often.  

3) You can use powdered stevia or liquid stevia.  Most of the time I use liquid stevia.  

4) The taste of your hot chocolate can easily be upgraded by using flavored liquid stevia.  Examples are chocolate liquid stevia, hazelnut liquid stevia, cinnamon vanilla liquid stevia, peppermint liquid stevia, caramel liquid stevia, and coconut liquid stevia. 

Ingredients for Hot Chocolate with Stevia:

8 ounces milk (regular, coconut, almond, or soy)
2 teaspoons organic cocoa powder
1/8 teaspoon stevia powder or 3-4 drops of liquid stevia

How to Make Hot Chocolate with Cocoa and Stevia:

  • 1) Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until it comes to a boil. 

2) Remove saucepan from the heat and add the remainder of the ingredients. 

3) Whisk or stir well.  

4) Pour hot chocolate in your favorite mug and enjoy!  

How to make Homemade Whipped Cream with Stevia:  

1 pint whipping cream
1/8 teaspoon white stevia powder or 3-4 drops liquid stevia

1) In a large mixing bowl, add the cream and beat with a whisk or an electric hand-held mixer until it begins to thicken.

2) Sprinkle the powder or add drops over the cream and continue beating the cream until soft peaks form.  You don’t want to over-beat the cream.  

3) Use immediately or it will keep up to four days in the refrigerator if kept in an airtight container.  Yields 2 cups.


I found these recipes for hot chocolate and whipped cream in The Stevia Cookbook years ago and I’ve been making it ever since.

Trouble with this article is that it uses the term "hot chocolate" when what is really being made is hot COCOA. Check it out. The two beverages are NOT AT ALL identical. Hot chocolate is made with melted chocolate (preferabley dark chocolate). Hot cocoa is made with . . . cocoa powder.

Sounds good but milk has 12g of sugar so it’s really not sugar free.
