Good Clean Hot Cocoa

This healthy hot chocolate is a delicious alternative to the powdered mixes we used when were kids.

The comforting blend of cocoa, almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla and coconut oil provide the decadent texture and warming flavors that you’d expect from a cup of hot chocolate.

We love using almond milk in this recipe as its easy flavor blends perfectly with the rich cocoa powder. If you want a creamier and nut-free drink, try using coconut milk instead.


  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (or coconut milk)

  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon organic coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoons of raw almond butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • Pinch of sea salt to taste

  • Pinch of cinnamon

  • 1 heaping tablespoon (or more) high quality cacao.


In a milk frother, add all ingredients into the frother container and put the setting on steam to blend it all together.

If you don’t have a milk frother, use a Vitamix or high-speed blender until thick and smooth. Then pour into a small pot and gently heat on the stove top until warm.
