Ready for the ultimate warm, sweet, creamy, healthy, comforting, and even slimming hot cocoa recipe for the whole family?

THIS is the one!

My family doesn’t even realize that this isn’t real hot cocoa with sugar! If you’ve not tried Gentle Sweet yet, it is an absolute must for your sugar-free journey.  I have literally tried every stevia based sweetener on the market since I went sugar free almost 6 years ago!  Gentle Sweet is the only one that really gives that sugary, non-bitter sweetness that we all know and love.  It is perfect in your coffee and chocolate especially! 

Wholesome Hot Cocoa (FP)

Course Drinks
Servings 8


  • 2 quarts unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/3 cup Gentle Sweet
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 3 pinches mineral salt
  • 1 scoop THM Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 1 Tbsp instant coffee
  • 1/2 tsp THM Caramel Natural Burst
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. Pour the unsweetened milk into a medium saucepan and warm over medium heat.

  2. Whisk the Gentle Sweet, cocoa powder, and salt into the milk while it's heating. 

  3. Slowly sprinkle in the chocolate whey powder a little at a time while whisking so it doesn't clump up. 

  4. Remove from heat and add in the coffee, caramel, and vanilla flavoring.  Whisk again and ladle into mugs for serving! 

I use THM products in my recipes because I find them to be the highest, purist quality without any weird fillers.  It’s important to THM that their products are as minimally processed as possible.  I find them to be more affordable than other brands as well. 

They are having their biggest sale of the year TODAY ONLY (Cyber Monday) so please check them out and stock up while supplies last!

    1. Hi Sarah, yes, you sure can. Just add a tiny bit more cocoa powder and sweetener if you use a plain whey protein powder! I hope you love it!

  1. I would love to try this but have been unable to get the carmel flavoring. I have been trying for 3months

    1. Hi Sherilyn, Walmart has Watkins Caramel Extract (at least mine does) and that can be used instead of the THM brand. An alternative would be any other yummy extract that pairs well with chocolate. 🙂
