    Turmeric Hot Chocolate

    I remember when I was little, the best part of Christmas Eve was tearing open a packet of hot chocolate (you know, the one with all the tiny marshmallows of course) and drinking cup after cup until the sugar rush inevitably turned into a crash. My dad would scoop me up off the couch and carry me off to bed to wait for Santa to arrive.

    Nowadays, my tastebuds are a little different. While I’m still a chocolate lover, I find myself drawn to the deliciously bitter taste of dark chocolate. When cold weather comes around, I love to make my own hot chocolate, and I consider the principles of Ayurveda when I do. During the winter months, I love to experiment with warming flavours, herbs, and spices.

    Through many iterations, I do believe I’ve created the perfect hot chocolate recipe: infused with turmeric and cinnamon. This recipe is quick and easy to make, with a rich creamy flavor and filled with anti-inflammatory ingredients. It can be made completely vegan by choosing a plant based milk and omitting the honey, or substituting for your favorite sweetener like agave or maple syrup.


    Recipe yields 4 servings

    • 3 cups milk / milk substitute of choice - (my favorite is soy milk, but you can use almond, coconut or regular milk)
    • 4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 3-4 tsp honey - (or agave or maple syrup for vegan substitute)
    • 2-3 tsp ground turmeric
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • 1 pinch black pepper - (optional)
    • 1 pinch cayenne pepper - (optional)


    • Pour milk into a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
    • Add all other ingredients, and continuously stir with a whisk for about 2 minutes until all ingredients are smooth and well combined.
    • Remove from heat, allow a few moments to cool and enjoy!
