This Gluten Free & Vegan Instant Powdered Hot Chocolate Recipe is Easy to make & Delicious!  It’s perfect for whipping up quickly on those chilly nights, special holiday’s or giving as a gift!


  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 1/2 Cups Powdered Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Dry Vanilla Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt (optional)
  • 1 Cup Powdered Coconut Milk or Regular Powdered Milk (optional – see note below)


  • In medium bowl, whisk all ingredients until well incorporated & no lumps remain – If you have one, use a sifter to sift the Ingredients into a bowl.
  • Store in airtight container to keep mixture dry until use.

Instructions To Prepare Hot Cocoa from Dry Mixture:

  1. Heat 1 Cup Milk or Milk Alternative until very hot – There’s no need to bring the liquid to a boil if you plan to drink it right away.
  2. Mix 4-5 Tablespoons (or to your taste) of the Hot Cocoa Mixture & stir until everything is completely dissolved.
  3. Be careful that you let the Hot Cocoa cool enough so that the temperature is safe & enjoyable for you or little ones to drink.

Optional Ingredients:

  1. Top Hot Cocoa with Mini Vegan Marshmallows (Our favorite is Dandies Brand)
  2. Top Hot Cocoa with Vegan Whipped Cream (Like SoDelicious Whipped Topping)
  3. Use 1 Drop of Food Grade Peppermint Essential Oil (I love Rocky Mountain Oils!) in Hot Cocoa for extra Holiday Flavor


This Hot Cocoa Recipe is perfect for gift giving…  Package the dry cocoa mixture into small glass jars & label with instructions.
