Iíve found the liquid stevia - plain or flavored - is best for new folks just beginning because it really doesnít have the "after taste" some associate with alternative sweeteners but these recipes use an assortment of stevia products. Enjoy, but please know we are not responsible for culinary flops, and weíve not had time to personally test all these recipes!

HOT COCOA
4 - 5 servings

Rich and chocolaty - like Mom used to make.

Ingredients
- 3 tbsp cocoa
- 1/2 tsp powdered Stevia extract
- 4 to 5 cups of soymilk or milk
- 2 tbsp honey or maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix the cocoa and Stevia extract together in a medium-sized saucepan. Add about 1/2 cup of the soymilk or milk to the dry ingredients to make a paste. Gradually thin the paste with about 1/2 cup of the milk. Add the honey or maple syrup while bringing to a low boil. Boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rest of the milk to the desired richness. Add the vanilla and return to burner until heated through. Note: Be careful not to scorch the cocoa. Use a pan with a heavy bottom and watch closely. Variation: You may add a teaspoon of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg.

STRAWBERRY-YOGURT LIQUADO
2 servings

A liquado is a cold, blended fruit drink served in Mexico. Make this thick, refreshing, bright pink version any time of year. The secret is frozen strawberries that have not been defrosted. They make it extra creamy and luxurious.

Ingredients
- 10 frozen strawberries
- 1 cup unsweetened yogurt
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 packet SweetLeaf SteviaPlus (or to taste)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and whip until smooth. Taste to correct sweetening - you might wish to add an additional packet of SteviaPlus. Serve immediately.
