I make hot cocoa ... Just using water (like you do tea) with a dash of milk. I do add a bit of sugar as I like it sweet but my mum drinks it without though it's a tiny bit bitter. I use a teaspoon of cocoa.
I like it as alternative to other hot drinks.

Yeah I do pure cacao powder in hot milk and add a natural sweetener like Stevia drops, coconut sugar or xylitol. Tastes yum! Ds likes it too. I tell him it's Milo

Looks like there may be a few options. Does cacao with mainly hot water work with some milk?
Another question - what is the better to use - stevia or fruit sugar if I use a little to sweeten?

Interesting thread topic. Plain cocoa (.5 tablespoon) and sugar (2teaspoons) with half hot water and half a cup of whole milk is only 121 calories which is pretty light especially compared to something like milo.
You could get it even lower in calories by using low fat milk or a low sugar soy if that's your thing. Oat milk is pretty nice with cocoa too.
Stevia is also good and I find has a weird effect on me where if I drink something well sweetened with stevia it actually puts me off a sugar craving. No idea why

Natvia hot choc! It's made with stevia and 4 calories if you make it with just water. Even my kids love it and guzzle it (I make theirs with Milk in the cappachino frother)

Would honey be all right to sweeten with the cacao powder does anyone know? Asking for me - I know it's too high in sugar but wondering if it would taste good. There are some great health benefits to honey despite the sugar.
