4 Ingredient Hot Chocolate

December 11, 2014

healthy_hot_chocolate_8It is hot chocolate season, and while those hot chocolate packets may be easy to just add water, I swear recipe is not much more complicated. This hot chocolate has only 4 ingredients and takes no longer than 5 minutes to make. It tastes way better than the powdered packets and doesn’t contain any of those bad-for-you ingredients like partially hydrogenated oil, corn syrup, or artificial flavors. Packed with antioxidants from the dark chocolate and cocoa powder and using an all natural sweetener, coconut sugar, I could even say that this is a healthy hot chocolate! No reason not to drink up!




1 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any milk your prefer)

1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1.5 Tbsp dark chocolate chunks (I used 67% cacoa)

1 Tbsp coconut sugar (or raw sugar)



Pour the almond milk into a small saucepan over medium heat.

When the milk begins to warm, add the rest of the ingredients.

Stir continuously until hot.

Garnish with whipped cream or marshmallows and enjoy!
