Enjoy an easy, rich and creamy Healthier hot Chocolate, without the guilt! it’s refined sugar free, Paleo and Vegan option, plus it’s made in around 15 minutes!
To top, I dusted with cacao powder and piped whipped coconut cream, and when dissolved into the chocolate, it makes amazing creamy vegan and paleo hot chocolate.
The best part? there’s no weird ingredients like the ones found in store-bought stuff, just natural ingredients that you’re able to read. There’s lots of sugar in a hot chocolate mix, but this healthy hot chocolate recipe has none, which makes it a low carb version.
Cocoa powder is what’s left when the cocoa butter is extracted from cacao beans. There’s no added sugar or weird ingredients, so yes, unsweetened cocoa powder is both paleo and vegan friendly.
These 7 simple ingredients are the only ingredients this recipe needs. They’re found found in any big grocery store.

Over a medium-sized sauce pan, heat on medium heat the milk, unsweetened chocolate, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, pinch of cinnamon and a little sea salt, mixing until completely incorporated.
For the coconut whipped cream, whip the cold hardened coconut milk without the coconut water, until light and fluffy. Pipe on top of hot chocolate and sprinkle with cacao powder if desired.
Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for around 5 days. Heat in the microwave or a small sauce pan before serving.
