Tired of seeing only highly sweet, processed hot chocolates on the market, we developed our instant hot chocolate to create a really delicious dark hot chocolate that was also healthy and vegan. We’ve included some amazing wholefood ingredients, many of which have great health benefits, to create a quick and easy way to make your favourite hot drink.
Perfect for taking to the office or on holiday, simply add a little cold water to make the powder into a paste, and then top up with hot water. It can also be made with hot milk if you want a creamier taste.
Organic and Vegan coconut milk powder
We use coconut milk powder from organic coconuts grown on the beautiful Island of Sri Lanka. The coconuts are grown by small-medium sized farmers and then made into powder by spray-drying the freshly pressed coconut milk by a local, family-owned company. The powder retains the nutritional content of the raw coconut and has a delicious creamy taste and aroma.
Organic raw cacao powder
We use very best Criollo cacao from the amazing rainforests of Peru. This cacao is farmed without agrochemicals by farmers working in a co-operative which supports the local economy. The Criollo bean represents only 5% of the world’s cacao production and is very high quality, aromatic and lacking in bitterness. The beans are processed minimally at low temperatures which preserves its natural characteristics.
Organic Blue Weber agave inulin
Inulin is highly nutritious and known for its potential gut health and blood sugar benefits. It is high in soluble fibre, which our bodies use as a prebiotic to ensure good digestion. We use inulin from the Blue Weber agave plant as it’s certified organic and free from GMOs.
Organic raw crystallised coconut nectar
We use raw, unrefined coconut nectar as the sweetener in our lattes. This popular sugar alternative is made from the sweet nectar of coconut blossom and has a rich nutritional content, has a lower GI than regular refined sugar and has a lovely caramel taste.

Is instant hot chocolate better with milk or water?
Our hot chocolate blend is designed to be made with water so you can make a quick delicious drink quickly, no matter where you are. It’s ideal to take to work or on holiday with you as it’s so easy to make. Equally, it can also be made with milk if you’re looking for a creamier, more indulgent drink.
How does instant hot chocolate work?
We’ve created our hot chocolate with a base of coconut milk powder, so its quick and easy to make. Simply add 2 tablespoons of powder to a cup, mix thoroughly to a paste with a little cold water, and then top up your cup with some hot water. You can also add hot milk for a creamier drink.
Is hot chocolate good for you?
The popular, mainstream brands of hot chocolate contain huge amounts of refined sugar, as well as processed cocoa. Our recipe uses unrefined coconut sugar, which has a much higher nutrient content and a lower GI, together with unprocessed raw cacao, making a much healthier cup of hot chocolate.
