Hot Chocolate is one of the best drinks to warm you up during the cold months. It is also comforting enough so you can have it any time of year. You can make a lot or just a little. This hot chocolate recipe makes just over 1 cup. It is thick and creamy and uses all natural ingredients.
3/4 cup rice milk or oat milk
1/4 cup coconut milk beverage
3 tbsp maple syrup ( more or less to taste)
2 tbsp cacao powder
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp tapioca starch
1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a small saucepan combine your rice or oat milk, coconut milk, maple syrup, cacao powder, salt and tapioca starch.
- Whish over medium-low heat until well combined. Cook for about 5 minutes or until thickened. Whisking continuously.
- Remove from heat and add the vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
- Ladle into a mug and serve. You can top with vegan marshmallow or whipped coconut cream.You can add in 1/2 tbsp coconut oil for added health benefits or keep it oil free for personal preference. Either way, it is super yummy!

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
