Hot Chocolate Recipe. Dairy or Vegan

Hot Chocolate? I never wait for a reason to enjoy a cup!

It is the perfect comfort food on a cold rainy day, but it will do just great any other day as well, thank you very much!

A friend recently brought me a box of insanely expensive hot chocolate mix.

I couldn’t wait to try it, and . . . I was frankly underwhelmed. What’s the big deal, I thought. It certainly didn’t beat boiling some milk or dairy-free milk with some good cocoa powder, a little sugar, and maybe a little vanilla extract or other flavoring. Yes, that’s the whole story! No problem making your own natural mix the instant way, using milk powder—dairy or not—and mixing it with boiling water, making a delicious cup of hot cocoa in a jiffy. I still make it for my children, who now enjoy it with their children. Love of hot chocolate is forever. Thank G-d for small blessings!

This is my favorite hot chocolate mix, which I always have on hand. Get racy and add to your cup the flavoring you like, one at a time, and get a new variation on the classic each time.

I am showing you here two convenient ways of making your own hot chocolate mix: Just add milk, or just add water, both equally delicious.



  • 1 cup pure cocoa powder
  • 2 pouches Levana Nourishments Cocoa Coffee
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup erythritol, or 1/2 cup stevia or truvia
  • For mocha: Add 1 cup instant coffee powder, decaf OK

Optional flavorings:

  • Add only in your individual cup; choose one: pinch cayenne, cinnamon, nutmeg , vanilla extract, caramel extract, star anise, drop peppermint extract, etc.


Mix thoroughly and store in a glass jar.

For 1 cup hot cocoa: whisk 2 tablespoons (Hot mocha: 2 1/2 tablespoons) of the mix into 1 cup very hot whole milk or dairy-free milk. Makes about 3 cups hot chocolate mix, or 4 cups hot mocha mix). Store in a glass jar at room temperature. Makes about 20 servings.

Note: If you find boiling the milk too much of an imposition, add 1 1/2 cups whole-milk powder, dairy or dairy-free (I love hot chocolate made with coconut milk powder!), to the mix. For 1 cup hot cocoa: Whisk 3 tablespoons (hot mocha: 4 tablespoons) mix into 1 cup boiling water. Makes 4 1/5 cups just-add-water hot chocolate mix, or 5 1/2 cups just-add-water hot mocha mix.
