  • 1 1/2 cups Almond Milk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Cocoa Powder, unsweetened
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Whipped Cream, for serving
  • Shaved Chocolate for garnish, optional


  • In a medium saucepan, add the almond and turn the burner on medium high heat.
  • Add the cocoa powder, coconut sugar, cinnamon and sea salt
  • Whisk the ingredients together to combine, continuing to heat on medium high the mixture heats through. It'll be smooth and a bit frothy.
  • Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract, whisk to combine.
    Pour into a mug and add whipped cream or marshmallows and shaved chocolate, if you like.


  • Use plain, vanilla or toasted coconut almond milk. 
  • Regular milk is fine to use too. 
  • Add more coconut sugar if you like it sweeter, just start with adding 1/2 teaspoon at a time to taste. 
  • I use a non-dairy natural whipped topping that's usually available in the freezer section of well-stocked grocery stores.
