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.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whip until smooth. Sweeten to taste – you may wish to add an additional packet of SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener. Serve immediately.
Mix the cocoa and SweetLeaf Stevia® Sweetener together in a two-quart saucepan. Add about 1/2 cup of the milk to make a paste. Gradually add about 1/2 of the remaining milk, stirring to thin the paste. Turn on the heat under the saucepan, add the honey and bring the mixture to a slow boil. Boil for two or three minutes, and then turn the heat down. Add the rest of the milk and the vanilla and bring the heat back up. Heat until hot enough to drink, but keep stirring to be sure the mixture does not scorch! Serve with a dollop of whip cream and sprinkle of cinnamon for a tasty winter treat!
