Healthy Hot Chocolate

I don’t know about you but the weather around here has definitely turned very cold! We LOVE hot cocoa at our house this time of year, but I HATE all of the nasty ingredients in store bought cocoa mix. Plus, there can be a lot of sugar in those mixes which is no bueno for the waist line. So how do we warm up with our favorite drink without taking in all the crud? We make our own mix! It’s super simple, sugar free and tasty!


  • 6 tbs Unsweetened cocoa powder (I use a high quality dutch processed cocoa)
  • 1/2 cup Dry nonfat milk powder
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup Baking stevia (we buy ours at Costco) 

Mix all the ingredients well and store in a sealed container. To enjoy hot chocolate, mix 1 tbs dry mix with 1 cup hot almond milk, skim milk, or water. Stir until hot chocolate mix is completely dissolved and well combined. We like to add vanilla and peppermint flavor to ours to make it more gourmet, but it tastes fine on it’s own. Enjoy!
