Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa
Baby, it’s cold outside. Very cold. So cold you can actually feel Jack Frost nipping at your nose.
Winter has settled in, and it’s time for all things hot to sip. We love to drink hot herbal tea by the gallon — yet we indulge in hot cocoa on a regular basis, too.
Hot cocoa is the perfect “warm you up” drink. You come inside from shoveling, playing in the snow, sledding or just making a trip to the store, and it’s sweet warmth takes away bone-chilling cold.
A Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa Solution
Hot cocoa has its downsides, too — namely the sugar, fillers, and unpronounceable ingredients in commercial mixes. Commercial hot cocoa mixes often contain dairy as well.
My youngest son currently can’t have dairy. My husband needs to watch his sugar intake.
What’s a mom to do???
In addition to being dairy-free and sugar-free, this hot cocoa is also Paleo, vegan, and soooo good! It’s made with natural ingredients like coconut milk, cacao powder, and a natural sugar alternative called Coco Monkey.
What my kids like best is being able to drink this by the batch-full. What I like is that it’s not loaded with sugar, artificial ingredients, or fillers.
THIS dairy-free, sugar-free hot cocoa is a perfect fit for us. Now, everyone in the family is “part of the group”, and we can all enjoy hot cocoa together!
Add in some homemade marshmallows, almond cookies, or even a banana with almond butter and you have the perfect comfort food snack for a cold, wintry day! This hot chocolate is great any time of day, from morning until night.
It just takes a few ingredients and a couple minutes on the stove top to get a steamy, hot chocolate-y treat!
