Hot Cocoa - Easy and Vegan

Happy March 1st, everyone!  Where did the first 2 months of this year go?  And here we are, looking daylight savings in the face!  Eek!

I don't about you, but around here, we've been experiencing a very mild winter.  It's felt more like Spring the majority of the time, but over the last few weeks, Winter has taken it's place and we've had our fair share of snow and cold winds and rain.  And that type of weather calls for two things.  Sweaters.  And hot cocoa.

Scot and the boys love hot cocoa.  It's a special treat for them and I found myself a week or so ago trying to figure out a vegan version for it.  This is what I came up with.  It's rich and sweet and totally delicious!

Hot Cocoa - Easy and Vegan
Makes 2.5 cups (2 servings)
  • 2 1/2 cups unsweetened Almond Milk
  •  1/4 c cocoa powder
  • 1/2 c powdered sugar
  • 1/8 t salt (pinch)
  • 1 t vanilla
-- Combine everything in a small sauce pan (you'll have to whisk it a lot) and heat over medium until desired temperature.  DO NOT BOIL.


  1. A month or so ago I made hot cocoa with low at skim organic milk and felt so sick to my stomach from the dairy....only normally drink almond unsweetened anyway...thanks for posting this!

    1. Oh yeah, I think dairy would have that effect on me now, too! I'm so glad you found this.
