A classic kids drink with a twist!

Hot cocoa with turmeric, cinnamon and vanilla – your cold weather life will never be the same again!

I teased this Healthy Hot Turmeric Cocoa last year, but never got around to posting it. That was a serious fail on my part! And boy did you guys let me know it:). I got emails in July asking for this recipe.

#youwin here it is!

It is beyond my girls favorite warm drink for me to make them on cold winter days when we get back from playing in the snow and are all half frozen solid.

Warmed milk with rich chocolate and a hint of warming spices

It’s a very simple 7-ingredient recipe, most of which you probably have in your panty and fridge – some sort of milk (cow, almond, coconut, soy, hemp, etc), cocoa powder, maple syrup, turmeric powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract and a pinch of pink salt all whisked together in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat until just warmed.

Takes less then 5-minutes from start to finish!

You can serve it by itself, with some mini marshmallows or if your feeling extra then you can serve it with a dollop of coconut whipped cream.

Reasons to Love this Healthy Hot Turmeric Cocoa for Toddlers + Kids:

  • Can be made with any type of milk – cows, coconut, almond, soy, hemp
  • Refined Sugar-Free
  • Turmeric is great for immunity building and keeping you healthy (very important during the cold winter months)
  • Perfect for all ages 12 months and up
  • Can be sent to school for a special lunch treat:)
