  • 1 ¼ cup oat milk
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Add all ingredients to a pot on the stove.
    1 ¼ cup oat milk, 1 tablespoon cacao powder, 1 teaspoon maple syrup, 1 pinch salt
  • Whisk to combine ingredients well and then turn heat on to medium-heat.
  • Let simmer for 2-5 minutes, until the oat milk is hot enough to your liking. Do not let the hot chocolate boil over!
  • Continue to stir every few minutes to combine the ingredients well.
  • Once oat milk hot chocolate is warm enough, remove from heat and pour into a mug.
  • Drink as is, with coconut whipped cream, or with marshmallows on top!


Cacao Powder - A great superfood that gives the chocolate flavor. Substitute with unsweetened cocoa powder. Aim for cocoa or cacao powder with no added sugar.
Oat Milk - Use your favorite oat milk. Substitute for any other non dairy milk alternative like almond milk, cashew milk or coconut milk. For an even chocolatier experience, try chocolate oat milk!
Maple Syrup - Substitute for honey or coconut sugar.
To reheat, pour back into a pot on the stovetop pot and heat for 2-3 minutes, until hot enough for preference. Or to microwave, stir to combine and microwave for 60-seconds. Stir again and microwave again for 30-60 seconds, until hot enough for preference.
I would not advise swapping for a store-bought hot cocoa mix, because they often have dairy and also a lot of added sugar. Instead, a better substitute would be cocoa powder.
