Dairy-free Coconut Milk Hot Chocolate or Carob (with pictures!)

What do you think of when you hear the word winter? I think of snow and hot cocoa or hot carob (for my chocolate allergic son)! but being allergic to milk puts a bit of a damper on that. We played around with recipes and found a hot cocoa/ carob drink that we really enjoy! 

This recipe is for a single serving.

You will need:






  1. Pour one cup of So Delicious Coconut Milk in a mug and heat in the microwave for 2 minutes. You can also heat this on a stove eye if you don't have a microwave. Usually I do medium heat (so I don't burn the milk) stirring constantly until nice and hot! Then just set it aside while you prep the cocoa/ carob mix.
  2. Put the extract (if you are using it), the sugar (or sweetener) and the cocoa or carob into another mug. Mix it together. The extract will clump a bit in the mix. That's okay! It's normal. 
  3. Add 1 to 2 TBSP of hot tap water into the mug with the cocoa/ carob and sugar. Mix until it is smooth. This step keeps the powder from clumping up and floating to the top of your cup when you add the milk.
  4. Take the hot milk out of the microwave (or off the stove eye) and pour into your cocoa mug. Stir well. 
  5. Try not to drink all of it before you take photos :) I almost forgot!

    1. Yes I have! They are very good. I really like their chocolate a lot. I make chocolate covered pecans by melting some in the microwave and just pouring it over them. Then I let them set. Well, most of them :)

  2. Not too long ago I found dairy free soy free sugar free chocolate chips at Whole Foods. They also had carob. I'm going to try this in a crock pot when we have a very cold day which hopefully will be very soon.

  3. Donna, that sounds great! If you find out what brand it was, let me know. I love trying new chocolate. I'm going to have to wait on the crock pot idea. I am lower on milk than I thought. So it will be a week or so before I can try it. If you do try it, let me know how it goes and I'll it to the post.

  4. Ill check on the brand and let you know. I found SO coconut egg nog and rice dream eggnog as well. Both are at Whole Foods and have no dairy. I forgot to check the label for other allergens though. :(

    1. No problems! I have had So Delicious Coconut Milk Nog. OMG! So good! It's my favorite! But they refuse to get it in here, so I am searching for somewhere that carries it within about 150 miles radius here. LOL I will drive to buy it, it's that good!
