Tahini Hot Chocolate

Tahini Hot Chocolate is a thick, comforting, hot drink with a truly underrated flavour combination: tahini and chocolate. Tahini is a unique flavour that’s often used like peanut butter and has a bitter taste similar to chocolate so it works well in balance with the sweet ingredients.

  • 1 cup whole milk or non-dairy milk of choice
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tbsp tahini well stirred


  • Warm a cup of milk in a saucepan over medium low heat.
  • Whisk in unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt.
  • Once all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the milk is the perfect drinking temperature, add tahini and stir for another 30 seconds.
  • Strain the drink as you pour it into your favourite mug.
  • Optional: Add a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy!


Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon on the top of your drink is optional but delicious. 
I recommend straining homemade chocolate before serving to make sure your drink is really smooth with no clumps of cocoa powder. 
I recommend adding the tahini at the end just to ensure you don’t overheat it
