4 Ingredient Dairy Free Hot Cocoa

19 11

Hey there, guys! Come November, I’m all about cozying up in my home, sipping on hot cocoa and watching the snow fall. During the holidays I try to keep it as “clean” as possible when it comes to my eats/drinks. I wanted to create a dairy free hot cocoa recipe that I could enjoy once or twice a week.

This option is made up of 4 simple ingredients! I use oat milk because in my opinion, is the best non-dairy option packed with nutrition and tastes the creamiest. I pair it with pure cacao for the dark chocolate taste and a dash of maple syrup for a natural sweetener. Lastly the vanilla is the perfect final touch!

I typically top my hot chocolate with a non-diary whip cream – almond or coconut. Both are delicious! Finally sprinkle on crushed peppermint for a little crunch. See below for the ingredient list and steps to make your own. Enjoy!


2 Cups oat milk – I love this brand

2 Tablespoons cacao powder

1 teaspoon maple syrup

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


1. Place all four ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat.

2. Whisk for 3-4 minutes.

3. Pour into a mug and add your favorite toppings. Enjoy!

Note: I use almond or coconut whip cream – it’s delicious!
