  • 3 cups milk of choice - flax milk and almond milk work amazingly!
  • 3 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1-2 tablespoons sweetener of choice - maple syrup is delicious!
  • Optional - coconut whipped cream
  • Optional - ginger and cinnamon as garnish


  • Warm the milk in a pot on the stove.
  • Whisk in the cacao powder until fully incorporated - this works better when the milk is already warm.
  • Whisk in the ginger. The amount will vary on your preference, but also how fresh your spice is. Add in 1/4 teaspoon first and taste test to see if you want more.
  • Add in your sweetener in the amount you desire.
  • Heat until just before it reaches a simmer.
  • Top with whipped cream, ginger, and cinnamon.
  • Enjoy!
