The Best Healthy Hot Chocolate

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

The comforting blend of cocoa, almond milk, almond butter, maple syrup, 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
1 heaping tablespoon cocoa powder


Add all ingredients to your Vitamix or high-speed blender until thick and smooth. If you have a milk frother - froth 1/4 cup of your mixture - pour the rest into a small pot, gently heat until warm - top with froth, sip and enjoy!
