The best hot chocolate is made with cacao powder, which you can find at many grocery stores or online! Raw cacao powder is healthier and richer in flavor than regular cocoa powder. However, you can use a good quality cocoa powder in its place.
This quick homemade hot chocolate with cacao powder is made with milk, honey and a touch of vanilla. Let me assure you that it’s nearly as easy to make as a powdered mix, but it’s even more delicious and much more nutritious. For a vegan version, use canned coconut milk in place of the regular milk and swap out the honey for maple syrup.
