{dairy free} Hot Cocoa

Every once in a while I treat the kids to Hot Cocoa (with marshmallows) after school on a cold winter day.  Holy sugar!  If you look closely at the store bought hot cocoa ingredients you will quickly realize there are many added preservatives, added dyes, etc in those convenient little packets. A big NO NO!

Here's the recipe we use to make our hot cocoa. Enjoy!

{dairy free} Hot Cocoa

  • 2 cups dairy-free milk (I use Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
  • 2 Tbps Cane Sugar (Coconut Sugar Or Maple Syrup would work too)
  • 2 Tbps Cocoa Powder (higher quality the better)
  • 1-2 ounces Enjoy Life dairy free chocolates
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch of cinnamon

1) Add all ingredients to high speed blender (like a Vitamix) and run on high for a few minutes until warmed. Or you can blend and then heat in microwave if you want it hot!
2) Top with marshmallows. I chose Campfire Brand because they do not have added dyes. I found them at Kroger and Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
