Homemade Mexican Hot Cocoa with the MIRA Electric Milk Frother

Mexican Hot Cocoa
1 C milk (whole works best)
1 T cocoa powder
1 T sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of Mexican Chili Powder
dash of Cayenne pepper


  • Pour milk in Mira Electric Milk Frother Machine
  • Add remaining ingredients and press button once.
  • The machine automatically turns off when finished. 
  • This will make a nice warm frothy beverage. It is not too hot.
If you want to make it on the stovetop, just whisk ingredients as it cooks over medium-high heat. You will need to continually whisk to keep from scorching the bottom. If you like the idea of walking away while it warms and froths, then I suggest getting the Mira Electric Milk Frother.

If you want this to be HOT, then pre-cook the milk in the microwave and add to the machine to just froth it. It can be used for just frothing.

My Thoughts:

This Mira Electric Milk Frother is a fun kitchen gadget that helps make wonderful froth easily at
the touch of a button. It makes hot cocoa at the perfect temperature for my children. I like that it can warm milk, froth it, or both froth and warm at the touch of a button and automatically shuts off. It has an internal temperature gauge, so it will not make a beverage be too hot when you select to warm it. I can't wait to have friends over for a "coffee date", between this frother and my gourmet syrups they will feel like they are in a coffee shop. The thick froth it creates also makes it so that my kids don't miss adding marshmallows to their hot cocoa.

This is funny that I came across this post today...I've been doing research on milk frothers (like this one) versus buying a used espresso/frother machine type of thing. I am definitely making this Mexican Hot Chocolate recipe - just Pinned it!
