I was in Barnes & Noble today and noticed that Godiva hot cocoa is dairy free. So that gives us a dairy free list of:




...or there's making your own with cocoa powder and sugar.

(Not sure this observation is worth its own thread, but wasn't sure where to put it.)

Wow, I didn't know those cocoa mixes were dairy free! I'll keep an eye out for them.

At the moment, I'm using Mexican chocolate tablets for hot chocolate. They're yummy, but not to everyone's taste I'm sure.

Be sure to double check. Only some Ghiardelli and Godiva variations are dairy free. I've found a couple of store brands that were vegan too. Weird, huh?

I just heat up soy milk (preferably with the steamer at work) and add chocolate syrup... (again, check the ingredients).

I also have a homemade mix that I use with cocoa powder, organic sugar, soymilk powder, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix with hot soy milk.

I've been surprised at some of the store brand items that are vegan. An example: Kroger (my local grocery) brand corn muffin mix-- in contrast to brands like Jiffy, which aren't even vegetarian!

I didn't even realize Godiva made more than one type. There was only one variety there, so I thought that was it.

I wish some store brands around here were vegan. Ghiradelli gets expensive after awhile.

I make cocoa by heating up some soymilk in the microwave for a minute, then I add a couple spoonfuls of unsweetened cocoa powder, stir in a spoonful of maple syrup (or turbinado, both work) and heat it up again for 30 seconds.

For flavor variations I add:

-sprinkle of cinnamon

-Orange Chocolate: orange extract

-Mint Chocolate: mint extract

-Pumpkin pie: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice

-Gingerbread: cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, ginger and a bit of molasses

10-2/3 cups powdered soymilk

6 oz. jar powdered nondairy creamer

4 cups powdered sugar

2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir gently to mix well. Store in an airtight container in a cool dark place. This makes 17 cups of mix.

As far as non-dairy cocoa - we like Ahlaska!

Just came across a new organic dairy-free hot chocolate called Boulevards. Its has a cat on the front (not sure what that has to do with chocolate, but its cute). They also have a dairy-free version that's also sugar-free. What's next, cut out the cocoa?

If you have Sensational Soy milk in your area, I recommend heating the Luscious Chocolate. SOO good!!

What you will find surprising is cayenne pepper added to this recipe.

Once in a great while I make hot cocoa by just adding some pure cocoa powder (the kind used for baking) to a small pot, a little stevia or maple syrup, and a cup or so of almond milk (or other plant milk). Stir, then heat until it comes to a low rolling boil. Adding a drop or so of vanilla extract or another extract is sometimes good too.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel
