6 cups milk (use whatever you like, I use unsweetened almond milk!)

1 teaspoon store-bought curry powder

2 green cardamom pods, crushed

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 cup honey

1/4 teaspoon salt

Marshmallows or whipped marshmallow cream, for serving (optional)


  1. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, warm the milk, curry powder, and cardamom pods over medium heat, stirring every now and then so it doesn't burn.
  2. Meanwhile, spoon the cocoa powder into a measuring cup. Once you see little bubbles forming around the perimeter of the saucepan, the milk is hot; turn off the heat. Pour a little milk, about 1 cup, into the cocoa powder, and whisk until smooth. Add back to the saucepan, and whisk in the honey and salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. Pour the hot chocolate through a strainer into 4 individual mugs and top with marshmallows, if you like.
