DIY Hot Cocoa Mix:

  • 1 cup organic vegan sugar
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne double if you like spicier cocoa
  • 1/2 vanilla bean sliced down the center to expose the seeds

Cloud Cocoa Mug:

  • 1 mug non-dairy milk
  • hot cocoa mix to taste
  • vegan whipped cream
  • 1 square dark chocolate
  • cinnamon or nutmeg optional


Hot cocoa Mix

  • Sift cocoa if for the least clumpy mix – but this step is optional. Add everything to a small mixing bowl and toss well to blend.
  • Pour into a glass jar or a baggy and seal for future use. When using, be sure not to add whole vanilla bean to cocoa, it really just infuses a lovely essence. For a stronger vanilla flavor, add a few drops to your hot cocoa when making it.

Cloud Cocoa Mug

  • Step One: Warm your milk to very hot. Pour into a blender. Add the hot cocoa mix to desired tastes.
  • Step Two: Blend on low for 1-3 minutes until well combined and frothy.
  • Step Three: Pour the cocoa into mug(s).
  • Step Four: Pop cocoa mug into the microwave for about ten to twenty seconds, this helps fluff up the milk a bit more!
  • Step Five: Swirl the whipped cream on top. Grate dark chocolate over top. Add optional cinnamon or nutmeg too. Serve!
