This hot chocolate is the perfect pick me up for a cool day – warm spicy and sweet. Be warned that the smell of freshly ground cinnamon is delicious…and may lead to the need for further cooking.

Cinnamon hot chocolate

Print Recipe
Serves: 1 Cooking Time: 20 minutes


  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons raw cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • Sprinkle of freshly ground cinnamon – from one cinnamon stick



Grind a cinnamon stick in a mortar and pestle – keep any left-over ground cinnamon in a jar for your next hot chocolate


Heat milk until steaming but do not bring to the boil


Add the raw cacao powder and honey to the milk and stir to combine


Sprinkle the hot chocolate with freshly ground cinnamon




I used Pureharvest Coco-quench coconut milk – this variety is a mix of coconut and brown rice milk so a little thinner than straight coconut milk and good for drinks. This hot chocolate is yummy with Rhubarb compote with strawberry gum and ginger on toast.
