Ready In:


  • 1 cup soymilk (vanilla, regular, ricemilk, whatever- even unsweetened is good)
  • 2 -3 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons warm water


  • Heat milk in the microwave (or on stove). Get it just a little hotter than drinkable. Stirring once or twice is a good idea.
  • Stir the cocoa and sugar into the warm water in a small container to dissolve sugar. Pour this into the mug of hot milk. Enjoy after skating, sliding, or a frosty white walk!

  1. Mmm!! This is perfect! I used plain soymilk, a tablespoon of very fine and rich cocoa powder, and 1 tsp Sun Crystals. I'm lazy and nuked the soymilk in the microwave (be careful doing this, cover the mug with a paper towel and nuke in 30-second intervals until it's at the desired heat level.) A definite keeper! I'll be making this over and over again come winter, as I drink this in industrial AC right now. ;)
  2. Really delicious and easy to make. I followed the recipe as is and used plain soy milk. I'm so glad I found this recipe!
  3. I used 1 mug full of unsweetened almond milk, 1 tbsp of Trader Joes unsweetened cocoa, and 1 tbsp of raw galberry honey per cup. It is approved by 3 kids and a mommy!
  4. DELICIOUS! I used vanilla soymilk, which made it so creamy and rich. Perfect for a snowy winter afternoon! Thanks!
  5. I love soymilk, and I love chocolate, plus cocoa powder. Geeze, there is nothing I don't love about this wonderful treat this very cold day on the farm. I used vanilla soymilk (light) and a dash of Splenda. Topped with a bit of SoyWhip cream and I was set. This is really wonderful, doubling as easy as a chill in the winter. Augh this warms the heart, fills the stomach, and brings warmth to your life. Thanks so much White Rose Child!


A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=>
