Hot chocolate the Fairtrade way (and lots of other ways too)

Submitted by on March 8, 2011 – 9:56 amNo Comment

You’ll love the delicious creamy taste of this drink made with real Fairtrade chocolate chunks. Hot chocolate is really versatile too, so we’ve offered a range of ways to adapt it to your taste.


For 2 big mugs
500ml semi-skimmed milk or non dairy milk if making vegan
100g Fairtrade dark chocolate
1 tbsp (or to taste) Fairtrade granulated sugar
A small cinnamon stick
A pinch of grated nutmeg


Chop the chocolate up into very small pieces, or whizz it in a blender. Pour the milk into a small pan and add the cinnamon stick. Heat the milk until just boiling then remove it from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until it dissolves. Add the sugar then whisk the mixture vigorously until it becomes frothy on the top.

This chocolate is delicious as it is but you can also jazz it up in lots of different ways. Try out the suggestions below or invent your own variation!
