Best homemade hot chocolate you’ll ever make and it’s vegan!! Dairy free rich & creamy mix of coconut milk, cocoa and more! Microwave ready in under 5 minutes just for you! Better than Starbucks! Nut free, Gluten free, Healthy. Single serve!




  • coconut whipped cream ( I buy mine)

To make hot chococlate:

  1. Add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and instant coffee to a regular size coffee cup. Stir to form a paste 
  2. Add the coconut milk and enough oat milk to fill the mug. Leave a little room for toppings . Stir and microwave until hot, 1 to 1 and 1/2 minutes or so. Stir and top with vegan whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or add marshmallows. Enjoy!! For step by step photos see above post🔼


  • oat milk: can use any unsweetened dairy free milk like almond milk,.. etc but I find oat milk to be the best for flavour and creaminess
  • coconut milk: can be substituted with all plant milk just won't be as creamy
  • gluten free: some oat milk isn't gluten free so check the label! or use a different plant milk
  • For boozy spiked cocoa: add a shot of your favourite holiday booze like brandy, tequila or peppermint schnapps,…etc ! Heavenly! -(stir in after drink has been prepared)
