Servings 2 people


  • 2 cups SilkĀ® Unsweetened Almondmilk
  • 2 tablespoons natural unsweetened cocoa (100% cacao)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice**
  • 4 ounces (about 1/3 cup full) dairy-free dark chocolate, chopped or chips (optional)
  • 2-4 tablespoons demerara or granulated sugar
  • mini marshmallows (topping)
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce (topping)
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup (topping), optional


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring milk to a simmer over medium-high heat. Whisk in cocoa and pumpkin pie spice until no lumps remain.
