Description

Skip the processed packets of hot cocoa and make your own at home with 3 simple ingredients. 3-Ingredient Homemade Hot Cocoa is warm, cozy, delicious, and completely dairy-free + naturally sweetened!


Scale

Ingredients

2 cups plain, unsweetened almond milk (or any type of milk you prefer)

¼ cup pure maple syrup

4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


Instructions

  1. Whisk all the ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat until warm.

Notes

I like a good-tasting, unsweetened almond milk for this recipe, but feel free to use any type of milk you like and have on hand.

If you want a sweeter hot cocoa, simply add more maple syrup.

Variations:

Swap ½ cup coconut milk (from a can) for ½ cup of the almond milk for a creamier version

Add 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Add ½ teaspoon pure peppermint extract

Serve with Vanilla Bean Sea Salt Coconut Cream
