A delicious, creamy peppermint hot chocolate that is healthy for you. Made with almond butter and sweetened with dates, this is a must try!


  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 soft medjool dates
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 12 heaping tbsp of almond butter
  • 23 drops peppermint extract
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Heat up your almond milk in the microwave for about 2 minutes or heat on the stove top until heated through making sure to stir so your milk doesn’t burn.
  2. Add hot milk, medjool dates, cocoa powder, almond butter, peppermint extract and salt to a high speed blender and blend on high until completely smooth.
  3. Pour into your favorite mugs and enjoy as is or add extras to your hearts content.


If you are using a weaker blender, I do recommend straining it through a mesh strainer to catch any chunks that might have been missed. 

If your medjool dates are not soft, heat them up in the almond milk to soften.
