Nothing is better on a cold day than curling up on the couch with a hot chocolate. But, do you know what’s in your run of the mill hot chocolate mix? Here’s the list from a company that shall remain nameless:┬áSugar, Corn Syrup, Modified Whey, Cocoa (Processed With Alkali), Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Nonfat Milk, Calcium Carbonate, Less Than 2% Of: Salt, Dipotassium Phosphate, Mono- And Diglycerides, Carrageenan, Acesulfame Potassium, Sucralose, Artificial Flavor.

If you just got really confused and thought you were doing a science experiment, I’ll bring you back to reality. When you see how easy and tastier it is to make your own hot chocolate, you will have no need for the store brand powder. Here’s the simple ingredient list:

100% Cocoa powder

Milk (I use whole, much better taste)

coconut milk (lite) – key ingredient!

Honey to sweeten


1. In a medium sized mug pour half milk, half coconut milk. Heat in microwave for about a minute.

2. In a mixing bowl add 1 tablespoon cocoa powder and add milk mixture. Use a wisk to mix the two well.

3. Pour your mixture back in the mug and reheat for another minute. Add Honey to sweeten.

Done. How easy was that? No more questionable hot chocolate powder in your future!
