Non-Dairy Hot Chocolate

  • Author: Allie

  • Yield: 1 1x
  • Diet: Vegan


Homemade non-dairy hot chocolate made with only three simple ingredients.


  • 1 cup dairy-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or sugar


Method 1 Stovetop:

  1. Warm the milk in a pot on the stovetop to desired drinking temperature and whisk in the cocoa powder and maple syrup (or sugar), stirring occasionally until combined.


Method 2 Microwave:

  1. In a microwave-safe mug or glass measuring cup add the milk, cocoa powder, and maple syrup.
  2. You can lightly whisk everything together, but the cocoa powder will not mix well in cold milk, so heat it up!
  3. Heat for 1 minute, then 30-second increments until you get your desired temperature. I like to stir everything in between the increments to help combine everything.
  4. When your desired temperature is reached, whisk the milk mixture again until the cocoa powder is thoroughly mixed in.
  5. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings
