Hot Chocolate is reminiscent of happy memories for me. We used to make hot chocolate on snowy days when I grew up.
I have fond memories of drinking hot chocolate on Christmas morning! I still enjoy a Christmas Hot Chocolate but we make ours from scratch!
So we aren’t talking about the powdered kind this time around! We are actually making a dairy-free hot chocolate today!
Don’t get me wrong that powdered stuff can come in handy! And my family does like it too, but today we are talking about an easy to make, creamy dairy-free orange hot chocolate recipe!
Honestly, when I think of the holidays, I think of hot chocolate and oranges. I remember my mom always had all kinds of oranges around this time of the year.
The chocolate and the orange pair so lovely together! The combo is truly a treat for your tastebuds!
We’ve been in love with Pascha Chocolate for a long time. The chocolate is free of: peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, soy wheat, gluten products and more! The chocolate is made in a dedicated allergen free facility and made with NO GMOs.

Can I use a different milk?
Yes, if you do not like coconut milk, you can use a milk of your choice. I used full fat coconut milk from a can because I wanted that creamy and thicker consistency.
My hot chocolate separates. Is that okay?
Yes, if you blend in a blender such as a vitamix the orange hot chocolate should stay blended. I used the stove method to melt my chocolate into my coconut milk. You might see a slight separation. It’s still delicious! Cheers!
What type of toppings did you use?
I used a dairy free coconut whip and some grated orange chocolate for this drink!
Can I make this an adult beverage?
Absolutely, you can! Simply add an alcohol that fits your needs! I think an orange liquor would taste pretty amazing! You might be wondering,is alcohol gluten free? My friend GF Jules shares what is safe and what is not.
