Hot Hot! Oh we got it!! Hot Cocoa Homestead style


Hello Blog hoppers!!!!!!!!! Welcome to Homestead on the Hill!!!


We are constantly remaking recipes we enjoyed before we went more natural and then got all oily.

Hippies???? Nah.  But we were “forced” to make some changes years ago with diet when our son had severe respiratory issues and was diagnosed with an anaphylatic peanut allergy.

That will scare the organic life right into you!!;)

I have a  really YUMMY, scrumdidlyumptious GUILT FREE recipe of Hot Cocoa for you to whip up today!!!!!!!

Make some, pop in the Polar Express, and enjoy with your kiddies!!!

“Hot Hot!! We got it!!” 

Here is a  link to bookmark for later for some fabulous Polar Express printables to print out!!

Give your kids tickets ahead of time for admission in!

Let the excitement build!!

 This is organic, dairy free, refined sugar free with our raw Homestead honey (use organic honey) and Young Living Peppermint oil for the older kids and adults!!!

Homestead Hot Cocoa

6 c Organic Almond Milk

10 tsp organic cacoa

Organic honey (we used our own)

1 tsp organic Vanilla

Warm on the stovetop….

Sweeten more to taste with this whipped concoction:

1 can Organic coconut milk

1.5 tbsp organic maple syrup

5 drops YL peppermint oil (Do not cook with/ingest other brands!) Why? YL has a Seed to Seal guarantee.

(Side note:  *If serving children, leave the peppermint oil out and add one small drop to each adults cup.

DO NOT INGEST OTHER BRANDS and if you have health issues

or are on medication, talk to your Dr first.*)

Whip together and add to taste to the Hot Cocoa mix above.

We LOVE using our Homestead honey instead of sugar around here!!!! You will find it in our recipes.  Real raw honey is our favorite!


Hope you and your family enjoy this recipe!!! We have a wonderful No bake cookie recipe using honey instead of sugar.  Check it out here.


Have yourself an Oily Christmas!!!!!

 Ready to hop on the Oily Express and not already working with someone?
