Hot Chocolate Alternatives

Hot chocolate is delicious, warming and soothing - the perfect way to unwind after a stressful day. 
But however delicious hot chocolate might taste, it can be problematic for many who are looking to avoid dairy.  Some of us might have a medical condition, which places dairy firmly off the menu.  Others might have ethical qualms about consuming animal products of any kind.

Fortunately, it’s possible to enjoy great drinking chocolate without consuming dairy.  On this page, you’ll find all of our dairy-free hot-chocolate alternatives, including a range of carob based drinks.  Whether you’re lactose-intolerant, or a vegan, there’s something here that will satisfy your need for delicious, liquid chocolate.

But these products are able to do much more than create a tasty drink – they also make great cooking ingredients.  They can be substituted into just about any recipe which calls for hot chocolate powder – and you might even find some recipes which call for them explicitly.  So, if you’re a keen baker with an aversion to dairy or chocolate, be sure to take a look through the items listed here.
