  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp sugar I used brown sugar
  • 1 tsp agave syrup or another sweetener
  • 200 ml oat milk plus extra 2 tsp of oat milk for the paste


  • Combine cocoa, sugar and agave syrup in a mug. Stir well, then slowly add 2 tbsp of oat milk. This will create the base for our recipe – the paste. Grab a small fork or spoon and stir vigorously until your paste is completely smooth. 
  • Pour 200ml (1 cup) of oat milk over your paste. Mix well using a fork or a spoon.
  • Transfer to a pan and heat up your hot cocoa on medium heat for about 4-5 minutes until you can see steam rising from your pan.
  • Optional: if you want your hot chocolate to be extra bubbly, use an electric milk frother to froth it up.
  • Serve in a mug with all your favourite toppings such as mini marshmallows or whipped coconut cream (recipe in Notes)



  • Use any type of sugar you like best (such as coconut sugar, white sugar, dark or light muscovado sugar).
  • If desired, agave syrup can be substituted for maple syrup or another sweetener.
  • If you're looking for a no sugar variation, use stevia instead of sugar. Remember to lower the amount of stevia in the recipe (1 tsp of sugar equals about 1 pinch of stevia).
  • When heating up your hot chocolate, stay alert to avoid burning it.
  • Make a delicious whipped cream topping using 1 can of full-fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight and drained to only include the solid part that forms on top). Simply mix the solidified coconut milk using an electric mixer for 4-5 minutes until fluffy.
