Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa

What's more comforting and yummy than a hot cup of rich, creamy cocoa on a cold winter's day?

Homemade cocoa is the perfect warm beverage for grandkids while the work away on paper craft projects.

Homemade cocoa using a high quality cocoa or cacao powder packed with nutrients makes this creamy cup especially comforting and satisfying. It should be so smooth and creamy it lines the sides of your cup as you sip away.

Grandson, who's been busy cutting out construction paper snowflakes (his favorite being his "Blackout" creation)
says he loved his cocoa so much it made him burp!


1/3 cup Cocoa or Cacao Powder
1/3 cup fine, granulated Sugar
1-1/2-2-1/2 cups Dairy Free Coconut Milk, unsweetened


  1. Mix together the dry ingredients until well-blended and any dry lumps are removed with a whisk or fork.
  2. Slowly drizzle in the milk and stir with a flexible spatula until the desired consistency and taste, while simmering on a low-heat. Be sure to scrap the cocoa mixture away from the sides and from sticking to the bottom on the sauce pan. I enjoy my cocoa thick and silky, while the grandkids prefer a thinner consistency.
  3. Optional: add whipped cream or marshmallows.
  4. Serve warm. If too hot, you won't enjoy the rich chocolate flavor as much. 
  5. Serves 3-4

Granddaughter made me a "Bird on a Shelf" of blue construction paper, crayon and tape that I get  play a game with moving it from shelf to shelf every day. Such a clever, creative girl!
