Guilt-free Stevia Chocolate Syrup
Eating healthier doesn't mean you can't have a guilt-free mocha or something chocolate to dip your strawberries in. Customize this chocolate syrup to your preferred sweetness and thickness. You can even add a little liquor to dress it up for a party!
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon stevia (I used Nu-stevia powder)
- 1 tablespoon agave nectar, optional
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preparation time 2mins
Cooking time 10mins

Mix the cocoa and water in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the stevia and agave nectar, if using.
Cook until it's the consistency that you want, whisking the whole time. It can be anywhere between a thin syrup to a thick fudge-like consistency.
Store in the fridge. If it thickens too much in the fridge just ad a teaspoon or 2 of water and mix in. At first it will seem like the sauce is breaking but it will come together with a few stirs.
