Dairy-Free Hot chocolate recipe

dairy free hot cocoa mixNothing like a cup of homemade hot cocoa. Chocolatey, warm and oh so good on a cold winter day! I always seem to crave hot cocoa more around the holidays. Maybe it’s the weather, maybe it’s the time for celebration. I just think hot coca (with tiny marshmallows, of course) and Christmastime, go hand it hand. They were meant to be together.

I was a bit sad when I first discovered every brand of hot cocoa mix contained dairy. “Powdered milk.” Blah. I’ve tried a couple dairy free hot cocoa mixes, but they are so gosh darn expensive. I FINALLY made the super easy switch to homemade. Seriously, only 3 ingredients. Mix it and add to a cup of hot non-dairy milk. I prefer unsweetened almond milk. So creamy and just puts you in the holiday spirit!

Be sure to double this simple recipe. One for you, one for a friend. Package in a glass jar, tie on a piece of twine or ribbon and add a little personalized tag. Everybody loves homemade gifts, especially when chocolate is involved. Cheers, friends!
