Healthy Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

I am trying to cut down on artificial sweeteners and like chocolate every day. I found that pure unsweetened cocoa is only 12 calories per tablespoon, and is one of the healthiest foods in the world. It contains antioxidants and 2 grams of fiber too!


I try to stay away from added sugar, artificial sweeteners, or nutritionally void foods in general. That stuff doesn't need to be in my body, so I take a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder (unsweetened, of course) and some stevia and add it to other foods; such as oatmeal, unsweetened almond breeze, whipped cottage cheese or whipped Mori Nu Lite tofu.

Oatmeal - gooey rich chocolaty indulgence, top with fresh fruit and yogurt yum!

Almond Breeze - chocolate "milk" or hot chocolate if heated

Whipped cottage cheese/mori nu tofu - makes a good chocolate mouse

Again, try just adding a tablespoon or two of the unsweetened cocoa to these items and a little sweetener, stevia or Agave nectar are my favorites.

Yummy! I use the stevia and the blue agave too. Last night too, with a pint sized canning jar that I used it to blend with the mix it all in the same container so that I could make an instant coffee mix to put into hot water. I put dry milk, cocoa, some instant coffee, and stevia, whirled it up, and I get my evening cup of "chocolate" I can use it too with some brewed coffee to whiten it. :)
