Sugar-free, Dairy-free Hot Chocolate

You can add regular milk and sugar to this recipe if you don’t want it to be sugar-free or dairy-free and it is still delicious. I am watching my sugar intake and decided to try it with unsweetened almond milk. It turned out great.

1/2 cup swerve confectioners sugar substitute
1/4 cup Hershey’s Cocoa Powder unsweetened
1 pinch of salt
1/3 cup hot water
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

This has marshmallows with sugar in them. But you can make sugar free marshmallows or buy them on Amazon.

Add swerve, cocoa powder, and salt to a sauce pan and mix.
Over medium low heat add in hot water.
Mix until it has a chocolate syrup consistency and bring to a boil
Boil 3 minutes
Add in milk
Continue to heat. Milk should be hot but not boiling. Turn heat off once it is hot. You can see the steam when it is hot.
Add in vanilla extract.
Pour into mug and enjoy.
This can also be topped with sugar free cool whip or marshmallows.
