Best Dairy Free Hot Cocoa Roundup

As some of you may know, the majority of store bought hot cocoa mix is made with milk chocolate and/or whey powder. As a marshmallow addict, I simply cannot go an entire winter without hot cocoa and mallows. So, I have done the work for y’all.

Most Accessible:

Target Brand Dark Chocolate Mix

Target carries this hot cocoa in the same aisle as the rest of their hot cocoa. It’s decent, it’s cheap, and most people live somewhat close to a Target, so you can’t really go wrong. 

Most Delicious:

Starbucks Double Chocolate Hot Cocoa

This is a great option to keep at home or school. It tastes fabulous with almond milk and even includes a mocha latte recipe on the box. Overall, this is my go-to. 

Most Boujee/Healthy:

Mushroom Hot Cocoa

This is some high end, earthy crunchy hot chocolate. With immune support and other supplements, this hot cocoa is basically like taking your vitamins. A little pricey, yes, but also vegan – if that’s something you’re into. 

As you can probs tell, dark chocolate is the way to go. However, just because you see a dark chocolate mix doesn’t mean you’re good to go. ALWAYS read the ingredients – whey is milk, milk fat is milk, etc. etc. 

About The Dairy QueenThe Dairy Queen

Just a New England gal stuck in rural Virginia. Can be found avoiding dairy at all costs. Talents include speed reading ingredient labels and enjoying ice cream via smell. If I could major in Spotify playlist construction and dairy free cooking, I would.

I have been blessed with a dairy allergy and have not touched a cheesy piece of pizza in years. Thus, here we are. I hope you find these recipes simple, inexpensive, and delicious. I have years of experience avoiding dairy, so hopefully my adventures can help you out.
