Hot Chocolate

  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream (can use coconut milk for dairy-free)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 to 2 tbsp confectioner’s Swerve Sweetener (depending on how sweet you like it)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract (or vanilla, or orange, or any extract your little heart might fancy)


  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp confectioner’s Swerve Sweetener
  • 1/2 tsp cocoa powder

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine almond milk, cream or coconut milk, cocoa powder and confectioner’s Swerve. Bring to just a simmer, whisking frequently to combine.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in peppermint extract. Divide between two mugs.
  3. For the garnish, combine whipping cream and confectioner’s Swerve in a medium bowl. Beat until medium peaks form. Dollop over hot chocolate and sprinkle with cocoa powder.

    Great blog. Thank u for the great recipes.

  • Debbie

    Is there a way to make this hot chocolate with using the microwave instead of the stove. Thanks,

    • Swerve

      Hi Debbie, you could try heating up the almond milk and cream in the microwave for about 2 minutes, until very hot. Then vigorously whisk in the cocoa powder, swerve, and extract. Hope this helps!
