Chocolate is the Vegetable of Love

Well, something like that anyway. For St Valentine's day you may be looking for something chocolaty but less sinful than the traditional chocolate shaped love. So, we offer to you:

Liquid Love err I mean --Chocolate
Makes 4 servings

Chocolate is such a satisfying scent for most people. Add to this drink peppermint extract for a more invigorating scent and a pleasing taste or something more exotic like coconut extract to bring you to an island paradise. Adding cinnamon to it can increase the warm feeling of the drink as well as increase libido--or add a splash of coffee extract if you may need to stay awake longer than normal.

Prep time: 5 minutes

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
About 10 drops stevia (add more or less depending on taste) Pinch salt
3 cups 1 percent low-fat milk
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Slowly warm milk on low heat stirring constantly to prevent scalding.
In a medium bowl, stir together cocoa powder, stevia, and salt. Slowly pour in 1 cup of the milk and whisk until smooth. Whisk in remaining 2 cups milk and vanilla.

Fill 4 (8-ounce) mugs with Liquid Chocolate and serve immediately.
