I am a Hot Chocolate (or Cocoa) fanatic. Really, before our diet change, it was my nightly drink before bed. But, since then, I haven't had it, closest thing has been heating up my Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk...but, it isn't the same. So, I decided I just needed to make my own, it is snowing after all! I found this recipe from Martha Stewart and didn't really have to change it, just sub in non-dairy milk for the whole milk...easy, peasy! So, without furthur ado, I give you Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa!
Dairy-Free Hot Cocoa Mix
3 1/2 cups sugar
2 1/4 cups cocoa
1 tablespoon table salt
Non-dairy milk for serving (We've used both the So Delicious Coconut Milk and the Silk Almond Milk, and both are fantastic with it)
In a large bowl, combine sugar, cocoa, and salt, and whisk to combine well. Store the mixture in an airtight container.
For individual servings, heat 1 cup of nondairy milk in the microwave on high just until hot. Place 2 tablespoons of the cocoa mix into a mug, and slowly stir in the hot milk, mixing as you're stirring (I find you have less lumps if you do it this way, then adding the mix to the milk).
