Homemade hot cocoa is surprisingly easy to make. Flavour yours with a drop or two of your favourite internal use essential oil for a fun new cocoa flavour.

What you’ll need:

  • 5 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid stevia or 1 ½ teaspoon powdered stevia (amount of sweetener can be adjusted to taste)
  • 1–2 tablespoons sugar or agave (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups almond milk
  • Recommended Essential Oils: Cinnamon Bark, Lavender, Wild Orange, or Peppermint oil.

What to do:

  1. Heat water, cocoa powder, and sweetener on a stove until ingredients are smooth.
  2. Add vanilla and milk and bring to a simmer. Pour into your favourite mug.
  3. Introduce flavour by swirling a toothpick dipped in your favourite essential oil.

Tip: For extra creamy cocoa, replace the water with equal parts milk or almond milk.
