  • 400 ml Skimmed Milk
  • 100 ml Light coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Peppermint extract
  • Whipped cream and candy canes to serve optional


  • Pour the Milk and coconut milk in to a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients and turn down to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Pour in to mugs and serve.



  • Use whipped cream and candy canes to make this hot chocolate a little more indulgent, or you can just leave them out.
  • We used a mixture of skimmed milk and coconut milk, but you could use just skimmed milk to make this lower in calories.
  • Want to keep this vegan? Use almond milk and swap the honey for maple syrup.
