Use unsweetened almond milk, a natural liquid sweetener, unsweetened cocoa powder, and peppermint extract to make a healthier Homemade Peppermint Hot Cocoa!


Units Scale
  • 1 cup milk (I used almond milk, any kind of milk will do the job)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/23 tablespoons liquid sweetener of choice (maple syrup, agave nectar, or honey all work well)
  • 1 drop peppermint extract


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder and sweetener and stir until they are combined.  Set aside.
  2.  Put the milk in a small sauce pan over medium low heat.  Stir in the chocolate mixture and heat until steaming.  Add the drop of peppermint extract. Enjoy!
