What is Whipped Hot Cocoa?

A while back, whipped coffee became a major trend on TikTok where you would blend whipping cream and instant coffee together. Since then, it has evolved and many recipes (like this one) have come about.

The thing I love about this Whipped Hot Cocoa is that it is safe for kids to eat since it doesn’t contain any caffeine.

This is the perfect caffeine-free way to enjoy Whipped Hot Chocolate.

Whipped Hot Cocoa

Ingredients:

  • Heavy Whipping Cream – Make sure it’s cold. (I usually put it in the freezer half an hour before starting)
  • Hot Cocoa Mix – I prefer the Swiss Miss or Starbucks Hot cocoa (you can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate or even white chocolate cocoa mix)
  • Warm Milk – I prefer whole milk as it gives a creamer consistency. You can even Almond, Rice or Soy milk as well.
  • Chocolate shavings – optional but I like the added look and taste

How to Make It:

In a bowl, beat the whipping cream well using a hand mixer or whisk until it starts gaining consistency and forms soft peaks.

Add the hot cocoa powder and keep mixing until the cream is whipped.

Fill a mug or a cup until about 2/3 with warm milk. You can also enjoy it with cold milk, over ice.

Spoon a bit of the whipped chocolate on top. You can also top with chocolate shavings if you prefer.

Things To Note:

  • You can adapt the chocolate quantities for a sweeter version if you prefer.
  • When the milk is warm, the whipped chocolate will dissolve quite fast.
  • This is enough for two big cups.
