How to make Sugar free Hot Cocoa Mix.
Sugar free Hot Cocoa Mix requires just three ingredients and an occasional fourth which I usually don’t add. These ingredients are Cocoa Powder ( I love the Terrassoul and the Hershey’s brand), Powdered sweetener (I use Monk fruit blend or Xylitol) and some salt. The occasional fourth ingredient is heavy cream powder or either coconut cream powder or coconut milk powder if dairy free.

- Powdered Sweetener is best for this recipe. If you don’t have powdered sweetener and you have the granular one, use a coffee grinder to make your own homemade powdered sweetener.
