Hot Chocolate recipe SIBOtest

Hot chocolate

‘Rich, velvety and smooth; this hot chocolate will make you swoon with every mouthful.’ Rebecca Coomes

Classification: Phase 1 – restricted, GF, DF, V

2 serves


  • 2 cups almond milk, see recipe page 125
  • 2 heaped tbs raw cacao powder
  • 1 tbs honey


Place the almond milk in a saucepan.  Melt the cacao powder in ½ cup hot water.  Stir continuously to remove any lumps.  Stir the chocolate and the honey into the almond milk.

Heat over a medium-high heat until the almond milk is almost boiling.  If you have a milk frother, you may like to froth some of the milk to make the top of the chocolate frothy.

Pour into 2 large mugs and sprinkle with some extra cacao powder.
