Hot Chocolate

There's nothing like a cup of hot chocolate to warm you up on a cold day. Who says it has to be full of sugar or bad for you???

This recipe for vegan and dairy-free hot chocolate is from The Tolerant Tummy.

Plan Do Eat


  • 1 cup packed unsweetened 100% cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Sift the cocoa powder, sugar, and salt together along with any additional flavorings (if using).
  2. Mix 1/4 cup of the hot chocolate mix with 8 ounces of hot milk, milk alternative, or water. Sprinkle with toppings (if using).
  3. Store mix in an airtight container.

Hot Chocolate 6 Ways

Here is the fun part! Flavors. Chocolate loves a good partner in crime. You can either customize the entire recipe of hot chocolate mix OR doctor up each mug individually. These are my favorites:

Peppermint mocha: add 2 tablespoons instant coffee (regular or decaf) to each recipe OR 1 teaspoon to each serving, garnish with a peppermint stick

Mexican hot chocolate: add 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon to each recipe OR 1/8 teaspoon (generous pinch) to each serving, garnish with a cinnamon stick

Double chocolate: add 1/4 cup of semi-sweet, dark chocolate, or white chocolate chips to each recipe OR 2 teaspoons to each serving

Dark chocolate/lower sugar: use 1/4 cup or 1/3 cup of sugar instead of the full 1/2 cup

Reese’s hot chocolate: add 1/4 cup powdered peanut butter to each recipe OR 2 teaspoons to each serving

Marshmallow dream: top each serving with a small handful of mini marshmallows
