Dairy-free Hot Chocolate at home

Dairy-free Hot Chocolate at home

I love hot chocolate, especially on cold days. It’s one of my favorite beverages to enjoy during the winter…heck, I even love drinking it in the summer–it’s so good. One thing I have been working on is learning how to make the dishes I eat the most and this includes beverages. Of course, this means I perfected hot chocolate, duh!

I like making food and drinks at home because I can consume them any time I want. What’s more, is I can control what’s in them which is extremely important because most items we consume while we’re out and about are packed full of preservatives. Not to mention, this is a fun recipe to try with little ones. So, without further ado, here’s my dairy-free hot chocolate recipe.

Dairy-free Hot Chocolate

Prep Time: -5 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: -10 minutes | Servings: 1


  • 1 cup unsweetened oat milk (or nondairy milk of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dairy-free semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp raw sugar or 1/2 packet powdered stevia
  • Coconut whipped cream
  1. Pour nondairy milk to a large mug and microwave for one minute.
  2. Once the milk is warm, add the chocolate chips, cocoa powder, and sugar/stevia.
  3. Combine thoroughly leaving no clumps.
  4. Put mug back in the microwave for another minute or until hot chocolate is warm.
  5. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed.
  6. Top with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.
  7. Enjoy!

This can also be made on the stove in a saucepan over medium heat.

Give it a try and let me know how you like it 🙂
