This healthy hot chocolate is a delicious dairy-free alternative to the popular powdered mixes we used when I was a kid. It calls for only 4 ingredients and takes just about 5 minutes to prepare.

What I love about making my own homemade hot chocolate is that you can customize the chocolate flavor exactly to your liking. Want a dark chocolate drink? Add more cocoa powder or use less sweetener.

Want it to be sugar-free? Replace the maple syrup with your favorite sugar-free alternative. Because you can taste this mixture as you go, it’s practically fool-proof!

This healthy hot chocolate recipe is:

Dairy-free

Vegan & Paleo friendly

Naturally sweetened

Low fat

Totally customizable

And super easy to make

I love using almond milk in this recipe as its neutral flavor blends seamlessly with the rich cocoa powder. If you want a creamier and nut-free drink, try using coconut milk instead.
