The holidays are almost here, and if you’re looking for a good alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners for your holiday baking or winter drinks, Pure Via is a great option. It tastes great, is all-natural, non-GMO, and made from the Stevia plant.
Before we know it, we will be snuggled up next to the fireplace with a nice cup of hot cocoa. When I was pregnant with my son, I had this craving for hot chocolate all winter long. Sipping hot cocoa after ice skating is also a fond memory of mine. There are many ways to enjoy hot cocoa, but this Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Recipe will definitely be your go-to winter warm up!
Cinnamon Hot Chocolate
- HOT COCOA
- 2 cups 500 mL 1% low fat milk
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 tablespoons 30 mL unsweetened cocoa
- 3 packets Pure Via sweetener
- 1/4 cup 50mL frozen lite whipped topping, thawed
- Ground cinnamon if desired
- Chocolate chips
For Hot Cocoa, pour milk into a 4-cup (1L) glass measure. Add cinnamon sticks. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until milk is warm. Stir in cocoa and Pure Via until blended. Heat in microwave on HIGH 2 to 3 minutes or until hot. Remove cinnamon sticks and discard.
Divide cocoa mixture evenly between 2 large mugs. Top with whipped cream. Add some chocolate chips and a cinnamon stick. Then enjoy!
TIP: For a more intense cinnamon flavor, leave cinnamon sticks in hot milk longer.
