The trick to making a mug of hug-your-insides thick hot chocolate is a bit of cornflour. In this revamped superfoods version of hot chocolate, things get really delicious with cacao and cardamom flavoured coffee. Mmm Yum!


  • 2 cups (500ml) milk
  • 1/2 cup (60g) cacao
  • 1/4 cup (30g) raw sugar
  • 40ml Nespresso Variations Vanilla Cardamom
  • 1 green cardamom pod, bruised
  • 2 tablespoon cornflour mixed in 1 tablespoon hot water
  • marshmallows, to serve
  • extra cacao, to dust


  1. Place milk, cacao, sugar, coffee, cardamom and cornflour mix in a heavy bottomed saucepan on low-medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Discard the cardamom pod.
  2. Pour equally in 4 mugs. Top with marshmallows and dust with caco.


If you don’t have a Nespresso machine, you can mix 1 1/2 tablespoons instant coffee in 4 tablespoons hot water and use that instead.
