Comfort in a cup-dairy free hot chocolate



Nothing says comfort like a warm cup of hot chocolate on a cold day.  But if you are dairy intolerant, that cup of Swiss Miss can wreak havoc on your tummy.

Not to worry; I have a delicious, easy, dairy free recipe for you.  This is for one serving, but can easily be multiplied.  You can find the original recipe here.


  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup dairy free milk of choice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine cocoa, sugar and salt in a small saucepan
  • Whisk in 4 tablespoons of milk of choice until cocoa is dissolved
  • heat over medium-low heat, whisking occasionally until hot
  • stir in vanilla
  • Serve with marshmallows or whipped dairy free cream if desired.

This beats Swiss Miss hands down.  I have not tried this in the microwave, but it might be a possibility.

Try this on a really cold day!
