Cozy Cocoa

By JJ Muenz

Simplicity is key when it comes to creating a recipe. I like to take very simple ingredients and give them a WOW factor! While attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I learned that confusion or guilt should not surround food. That’s why I decided to turn one of my favorite childhood drinks into a healthy treat: Cozy Cocoa.

This is a very simple and flexible recipe. I don’t typically measure out the ingredients, instead, I prefer to build it within the mug and use that to gauge my measurements. Give it a try and see what you think!

Cozy Cocoa


1-2 tbsp Lily’s stevia sweetened chocolate chips
1 cup unsweetened vanilla coconut milk
1 packet Sweetleaf Stevia
Cinnamon (optional)


  1. In a mug, pour a layer of chocolate chips to cover the entire bottom.
  2. Sprinkle in Stevia packet.
  3. Fill with coconut milk to the top.
  4. Pour contents of mug into saucepan and warm on stove over medium heat. Stirring continuously.
  5. Cocoa is ready once chocolate is fully melted.
  6. Pour cocoa back into mug, sprinkle with cinnamon (if desired), and enjoy!
