Easy Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe


With the summer heat rolling in, we are all looking for any way to cool off, and what sounds like a better solution than frozen hot chocolate! After searching around the internet, I found that there were many different frozen hot chocolate recipes. After much trial and error, I ended up making my own frozen hot chocolate recipe that I believe is the best combination of easy-to-make and amazingly delicious.

What you need for my frozen hot chocolate recipe:


  • Hot chocolate mix (I used Land-O-Lakes Single Serve Cocoa classics, you can also mix it up by using mint flavored hot chocolate)
  • 1/3 cup of water
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tbsp on chocolate syrup


Step 1: Heat up 1/3 cup of water in microwave for about 30 seconds and mix with hot cocoa powder (mixture shown in the picture below). Then place in freezer for a couple minutes to cool while you move on to the next step. (NOTE: Check out other types of hot chocolate mixtures that might be fun to use, for example, I have made this recipe using mint hot chocolate powder, which was super good!)


Step 2: Put 1 cup of ice, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 tbsp of chocolate syrup, and hot chocolate mixture (from freezer) into a blender.

Step 3: Blend for about 30-60 seconds and serve. Optional: add whip cream and sprinkles


The first think everyone always asks is “how is this different than chocolate milk?”  At least to me, hot chocolate mix has a very distinct taste that is different that chocolate milk.

This has to be one of my favorite dessert drinks. I am actually not a big fan of hot chocolate (because I always burn myself), but this alternative is perfect because it has all the taste without the chance of burning yourself. I also personally think that you can taste the chocolate better when it is cold. If you try it out be sure to let me know what you think!
