Hot cocoa anyone? This hot cocoa recipe is gluten free, dairy free, vegan, paleo, and can easily be made sugar free too! It’s so easy to make and tastes so delicious. Read on for the recipe!
1 cup milk of choice
3 TBS cocoa powder
1-2 TBS honey or maple syrup (or try a few drops of liquid stevia to keep it sugar free/keto)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
Heat milk in the microwave or on the stovetop until hot and gently stir in cocoa powder, sweetener of choice and vanilla. Stir until well combined.
Froth with a hand frother to make it foamy (optional, I used my Zulay Kitchen hand frother).
Top with whipped cream and cacao powder!
Try melting 1/2 oz of your favorite dark chocolate bar into the milk instead of using cocoa powder or cacao. Omit the sweetener.
Try melting 1/2 oz of Lily’s Sweets stevia sweetened chocolate bar for a sugar free hot cocoa option! Omit both the cocoa powder and sweetener.
