  • 2 cups almond milk (or your milk of choice)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup*
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Warm the almond milk in a small saucepan, then whisk in the cocoa powder, honey, and vanilla extract. Whisk well to remove any lumps from the cocoa.
  2. Optional: place in your blender (make sure the cocoa isn’t too hot – you don’t want to get burned) and blend until frothy.
  3. Serve warm.


*add more or less honey, depending on how sweet your kids like it
