Simply Creamy Vegan Hot Cocoa

Creamy Hot Chocolate on a snowy day.  

It's one of my favorite things in life!  

Every first real snow, I make my kids hot chocolate and graham cracker cookies. Today we had our first snow of the year (it took long enough!), and I HAD to share my Hot Cocoa recipe. I'm super proud of this recipe because it's my very own. It took a lot of experimenting with different products out there, but I'm happy to say that I'm pretty confident we've hit perfection here. 


  • 1 can Nature's Charm Evaporated Coconut Milk
  • 1 can Nature's Charm Sweetened Condensed Coconut Milk
  • 6 cups Preferred Non-Dairy "Milk," like Rice, Almond, Coconut, Oat, etc. (You can use another kind, but rice and coconut blended taste very similar to dairy)
  • 1/4 C Cocoa Powder
  • 1 t. Vanilla Extract


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a blender.  Blend on medium until well blended and creamy.
  2. Pour into a large sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. If not serving right away, turn heat to low heat to keep it simmering.  
  3. Do not boil because that will taint the flavor.
  4. Once Cocoa is heated to your desired temperature, pour into mugs and enjoy with your favorite toppings or mix-ins!

Suggested Toppings/Mix Ins:


Whipped topping (RediWhip Coconut)

Cinnamon for garnish

Candy Canes

Torani Syrup (All kinds of allergy friendly flavors!)

***Why are brand names so specific when you're not even selling their product?

Because I really do care.  I have tried other brands and so far Nature's Charm is the best one--hands down.
