Enjoy an delicious cup of dairy-free hot cocoa in just a few minutes! Includes a link to homemade Honey-Vanilla Marshmallows.



Single Serving:

  • 1 cup almond milk or other milk of choice
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite dairy-free coffee creamer or full fat coconut milk (optional, but makes it creamier)
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • 12 tablespoons sweetener of choice, use more or less to taste
  • handful of Honey Vanilla Marshmallows

4 Servings:

  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar, maple syrup, or other sweetener of choice, use more or less to taste
  • pinch of salt
  • dash of cinnamon, optional
  • 4 cups milk of choice (I use almond milk)
  • 1/3 cup non-dairy creamer or full-fat coconut milk, adds creaminess (optional)


Single Serving:

  1. Heat almond milk in a small saucepan over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes or until hot. You can also heat the milk in the microwave for 1 1/2-2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the creamer, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips in a large mug. Pour the hot milk into the large mug and stir to combine. Add sugar to taste and top with marshmallows. Makes 1 serving.

4 Servings:

  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk in about 1/2 cup milk and mix until well blended. Cook over medium heat until cocoa and sugar begin to dissolve, stirring continuously, then pour in remaining milk and creamer.
  2. Continue to cook of medium heat until hot. Pour into mugs, top with marshmallows or whipped (coconut) cream, and serve.
