I DID IT!!! I freakin love hot chocolate.  I have the fondest memories of getting home from water polo practice or swimming growing up and being freezing so my mom would make me a piping mug of hot cocoa.  It is so comforting and the perfect dessert on a cold night.  I love having a mix on hand so when you are tired at the end of the day you can just add some hot water and voila!  This combo is so easy but an essential part is some coconut milk powder – which luckily is easy to find on amazon HERE.  Matt and I have been enjoying a mug of these for the past few nights and we either top them with coconut milk whipped cream or smashmallows!  I also recommend adding a dash of peppermint schnapps to your hot cocoa because its DELISH.

If you look at a standard store bought hot cocoa the first two ingredients are sugar and corn syrup solids, followed by a list of vegetable oils and a bunch of words you can’t pronounce.  It is insane!!! Especially when you see how easy it is to make this recipe.  Using coconut sugar sweetens it beautifully and is not refined like typical white sugar and coconut milk powder keeps it dairy free while still super creamy and delish!

Topped with dairy free whipped cream!  Reddi Whip now makes both an almond milk and coconut milk option and they are both delicious.

    Thanks for a quick and easy, flavorful recipe! Any tips on how to make it non-clumpy? I suspect the coconut milk powder is challenging me… (Oh and trying to mix it up in the vitamix didn’t help , hahaha!)

    This recipe is SO GOOD! I was skeptical I’ll admit. I’m very picky about my hot chocolate, but this gets two thumbs up from me! My kids love it too. No more Swiss Miss in this house!

    So easy to make and absolutely delicious! I made a double batch and store it in a large mason jar. If you tie a ribbon in the jar it would make an adorable gift . . . but I’m keeping mine!

    Love this recipe. I made it with monk fruit sweetener and it was good! Definitely would have been delicious with coconut sugar but I was trying to find a low sugar option. My kids gobbled it up and said it was yummy.

    This recipe is amazing! I’ve made it three times now and each time I think to myself, I should double the recipe! Next time I will definitely double the recipe because I LOVE it and go through it quickly. I top it off with some marshmallows and I’m in heaven

    I love it, and was just craving a cup, when I saw your post, asking for a rating! Unfortunately, I am out of town, and my cocoa mix is home, 150 miles away!
    It is delicious….
