Hot cocoa recipe

After playing out in the snow, kids deserve a nice cup of hot cocoa, and this recipe makes the very best!

I’ve got two variations for you.  Traditional, and the Healthier version!


3.5 cups of milk

3 tablespoons of cocoa powder

1/3 of a cup of sugar

dash of salt



3.5 cups of organic milk or any milk alternative (coconut milk, rice milk, etc.)

3 tablespoons of cocoa powder  (I like this type here)

2/3 of a cup of coconut sugar  (I use this kind)

dash of sea salt


The Instructions are the same either way:

1.  Heat milk either on the stove top or in the microwave til warm/hot as you like it.

2.  Whisk in the dry ingredients until smooth.

3.  Enjoy with or without mini marshmallows and peppermint sticks!
