Non-Dairy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Non Dairy Hot Chocolate

Thought I’d share a treat with you today! I use this when I need a little warm pick-me-up at the end of the day. I often get cold and bummed out in our house (maybe a little SAD), and this helps me to come back into a warm and happy place!

This time of year, I long for a peppermint hot chocolate from Starbucks. But dang, all that dairy and sugar does not do well in my stomach. So this is a perfect alternative.

I usually just make a single serving of this at a time. Right in the mug. I just fill up my mug with coconut milk (it’s about a cup and a 1/4 (you could also use almond milk)) and heat it up in the microwave (or on the stove). I then add about a Tbsp of cocoa, a tsp of honey and a 1/2 tsp of peppermint exact. Delish.

Since this hot chocolate is not overly sweet, you could definitely serve this alongside some Paleo chocolate chip cookies.

Enjoy!
