My kids LOVE hot chocolate, and I mean LOVE!!!! Even though I have a go-to hot chocolate recipe that we all really enjoy, it requires melting chocolate chips on the stove – something I don’t always feel like doing.

It’s nice to have a pre-made hot chocolate mix that you only need to add water or non-dairy milk to when the craving hits. It’s also nice to have a mix to give to family and friends. Unlike most packaged hot chocolate though, this one isn’t full of sugar, artificial ingredients, dairy, and fillers – it something you can actually feel good about giving drinking!


Dried coconut milk powder:

I used coconut milk powder for this recipe in place of the traditional non-fat dried milk powder. This gives it a rich and creamy taste without dairy. It’s sold at most health food stores now so it’s pretty easily accessable. If it’s not sold near you, though, it’s also sold on Amazon.

If you choose to leave the coconut milk powder out of the mix, just use well shaken or stirred full-fat canned coconut milk to hydrate the mix instead of water or other non-dairy milk. This will ensure that your hot chocolate is still thick and creamy even without the dried coconut milk. I recommend not placing the canned coconut milk in the fridge for this particular recipe so it doesn’t seperate and is easier to stir.

For the sweetener, I chose to use powdered monkfruit sweetener because it’s Keto friendly. However, any powdered sugar will work! To make the hot chocolate Paleo compliant, simply blend some coconut palm sugar in a blender until it’s “powdered” then measure it out for the mix. Many people also like Powdered Swerve, this will work fine too. Just use whatever powdered sugar floats your boat!

Ok, here’s the recipe. I hope you love this rich, creamy hot chocolate as much as we do, enjoy!!!

Hot Chocolate Mix:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and use your fingers to break up any clumps. Transfer to an air-tight container or jar and store at room temperature. 

To make a single cup of hot chocolate:

  • Add 2 Tbsp. of hot chocolate mix to 3/4 Cup of hot water or non-dairy milk (recommended). If you omit the dried coconut milk powder, I highly recommend mixing it with well shaken or stirred full-fat canned coconut milk so it has a rich and creamy taste.
    *Note- Many coffee mugs are larger than 3/4 Cup, so you may need to measure accordingly. If you prefer a more intense hot chocolate, use 2 Tbsp. of mix for every 1/2 Cup of water or non-dairy milk.

  1. […] Who doesn’t love hot cocoa? This recipe includes an easy homemade vanilla sugar for two gifts in one! Tie a bag of marshmallows (vegan optional) to this mix for a perfectly complete “just add hot water” treat. Or, if you’re feeling a little extra-crafty, make these Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallow Sticks for a complement. They make amazing hot chocolate stir sticks! Megan’s Hot Cocoa Mix is similar to my recipe, but with one less ingredient and an “add your favorite milk beverage” instruction. And for sugar-free recipients, try this Keto Hot Chocolate Mix Recipe. […]

  2. This is exactly what I was looking for. We are low Carb and my daughter has already requested self-mixing cup for Xmas, where she can make her hot chocolate. So far I have never made one at home. We have always used a bought mixture. This is definitely next on my list. Thanks a lot for sharing it.

    • I think Monk Fruit Sweetener and Swerve Sweeteners both taste really close to real sugar. Sometimes they can have a bit of a cooling effect similar to mint but it depends on the recipe. In this hot chocolate recipe you can’t tell much of a difference though. I don’t really like to use pure erythritol because it can have a strong cooling effect and other sugar-free sweeteners can cause digestive upset so I stick to Monk Fruit and Swerve – hope that helps 😊
