Is there anything more comforting during these cold winter days than a cup of hot chocolate?

It is packed with essential nutrients that will boost your energy levels & increase the production of your ‘happy hormone’ serotonin! Perfect to beat the winter blues ☺

Raw Hazelnut Chocolate Milk

SERVES: 4 cups

EQUIPMENT: blender, rubber spatula


3 cups hazelnut milk (or any other plant-based milk of your choice)
½ heaping cup soft dates, pitted and roughly chopped
6 tablespoons cacao powder, unsweetened
¼ cup cashews (optional, for extra creaminess)
1 tablespoon cacao nibs (optional, these add a nice crunch & deep chocolate flavor)
1 large pinch Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt


  1. Combine hazelnut milk, dates, cacao, cashews, cacao nibs and sea salt in your blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Top with extra cacao nibs and goji berries.


  • This chocolate milk will stay fresh for at least 2 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  • I’m using homemade hazelnut milk because I love the flavor of hazelnuts with chocolate, but you could use any plant-based milk of your choice: almond milk, cashew milk, oat milk…
  • Did you know that by adding just a pinch of salt, you really bring out the natural sweetness of the dates?
  • You can choose to heat your chocolate milk until it’s nice and warm, you can enjoy it at room temperature or serve it chilled during summertime.
