Yield 2 1x


  • 2 cups milk, any kind (we used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1-oz. dark chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (or more, to taste)
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt


  1. Place almond milk into a small saucepan. Heat over medium/high heat.
  2. Once warm, add dark chocolate, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt. Use a whisk or handheld milk frother to mix until the cocoa powder is dissolved and combined.
  3. Continue heating and whisking hot chocolate over medium/high heat until just before boiling. You want to make sure not to burn the milk, but that the dark chocolate melts and combines.
  4. Once the dark chocolate has fully melted and the hot chocolate is hot, serve with your favorite whipped cream and enjoy!
