Lauren of So Fresh N So Green has mastered hot cocoa — and she’s taught us that a little nut butter will bring any hot cocoa recipe to life!

So it’s time to ditch the sugary, processed (and let's be honest, bland) hot cocoa packets for these rich, creamy, and superfood-stacked hot cocoa recipes.

Lauren’s created four hot cocoa recipes below (each featuring a different Ground Up nut butter!) that will be sure to suit any palette or craving. They’re sure to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way!

Healthy Hot Cocoa Instructions:

  1. Heat a stovetop pot over medium heat and add in coconut oil and chocolate pieces until melted, then stir in cacao powder, forming a paste at the bottom of the pot.

  2. Once mixed add in nut milk, dates and the additional ingredients required for whatever flavor combo you're making.

  3. Let warm over the stove-top at medium heat for 5-10 minutes. You want it steaming, but not boiling.

  4. Once everything is warm and mixed, pour into a blender and pulse until creamy, frothy and smooth.

  5. Serve in your fave mug and enjoy!
