Lactose Free* Hot Chocolate

Lactofree Hot Chocolate

For months I’ve been trying to find something I could claim as a “Cat Safe” Hot Chocolate. Now, most cafes pile on cream, most powder versions have enough skimmed milk powder in them to trigger my intolerance and most chocolate bars I have to consume in moderation so I can’t use it to make a Hot Chocolate. Well that changed when I found that I could eat Aero – I somewhat love Aero. Somewhat hate Nestle, but I can’t do much about that.

Dried Skimmed Milk itself doesn’t seem to affect me much.

Ingredients for “Cat Safe” Hot Chocolate
Aero 4 mini treat size bars (around 40g) (of which is ~6g milk solids of that between 0.12g and 0.48g may be lactose)
a mug full of full-fat milk (lactofree or normal)
a tiny grating of nutmeg
a handful of marshmallows


  1. Heat the milk and chocolate over a gentle heat – DO NOT BOIL! Keep on heat until all the chocolate is melted in.
  2. Once the chocolate is combined with the milk grate in as much nutmeg as you like (you can leave it out if you don’t like it!)
  3. Pour into mug (for preference a Large Mug).
  4. Cut up some marshmallows and top. (May need a spoon to consume this awesome drink/dessert.. )

*It may not be strictly Lactose Free, but it hasn’t upset my body so I’m happy to say I can make it again for me.
