Leave a Review »


  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder regular or dark
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk substitute with your favorite milk
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup substitute with your favorite sweetener

Optional variations:


  • Place the cocoa powder in a mug. Add 2 tablespoons of the milk and sweetener, and mix with a mini whisk or spoon until smooth. Add the remaining milk and chopped chocolate if using, and whisk until well combined.
  • Place in the microwave and cook for 1 - 1 1/2 minutes or until the desired temperature is reached. Add the extracts if using, and whisk or stir until smooth.
  • Top with marshmallows, coconut cream if desired and enjoy!


  • *For very rich dairy free hot chocolate, use full fat coconut milk.
  • **I only use 2 teaspoons of sweetener because the marshmallows that I love topping my cocoa with contain plenty of sugar. Add more sweetener to suit your tastes.
