Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

A dairy free version of classic hot chocolate with peppermint! A perfect treat for Christmas morning.


  • 2 cups unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, soy, coconut, etc…)
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp cacao powder
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • vegan marshmallows (optional)


  1. Pour the milk into a small pot and add the cacao powder, maple syrup, and peppermint extract. Whisk to combine and bring to a boil. Make sure you use peppermint extract for cooking, not peppermint essential oil!
  2. Bring the hot chocolate to a gentle boil and then take it off the heat.
  3. Pour into a mug and top with vegan marshmallows if desired. Serve and enjoy!
