Homemade hot chocolat

You all know we encourage you to enjoy the outdoors, safely.

We have had alot of snow! That being said, the rewards of braving the cold weather often is a hot drink afterwards. When you can, make the effort for a homemade hot chocolate rather than a store bought mix. Why? For starters, a store bought hot chocolate mix will often have sugar as the first ingrediant, meaning it is the highest quantity ingrediant. What follows is a sugar high then a sugar crash. We prefer this one and suggest you try this one with a milk alternative, such as almond milk, oat milk or coconut milk.

Tried and true with love, for you.

Homemade Hot Chocolate


4 1/2 cups canned coconut milk (about 3 full cans) OR Almond milk OR Oat milk
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup real maple syrup using more or less to taste
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 pinch flaky salt
coconut whipped cream, for serving (optional)
grated cinnamon or chocolate shavings (optional)


1. Add the coconut milk, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, and a pinch of salt to a large pot. Place the pot over medium low heat until the milk is scalding, but not boiling. Be sure to stir the pot often to make sure nothing is sticking to the bottom and burning.
2. Once the hot cocoa is steaming, ladle into mugs, dollop with whipped cream if desired. Drink and enjoy!
