Hot drinks are a nice way to warm up in the winter. So this week, I’m doing a hot drink week and we are starting off with an Instant Strawberry Hot Cocoa Mix.

This instant strawberry hot cocoa mix is based on a recipe that I have made in the past. However, instead of cocoa powder you use Nestle Strawberry Nesquick drink powder mix to get that strawberry flavor.

However to up the flavor of the mix, you add in some white chocolate and non-fat dry milk. You can even make this mix up with just water. but in my opinion, it tastes better when you make it with milk.

This mix makes a great gift from the kitchen. Girls will love the pink color. You can give some of the mix with a cute mug. You can also include some fun marshmallows! I found some pastel rainbow marshmallows at my local Walmart. That is what I used in the photo. I also had some cute gold sparkle drink stirring stick I also used. I even think this is another gift that you could give for Valentine’s too with that bright pink color.

Servings 12 servings


  • 7 ounces high quality white chocolate chopped
  • cup instant non fat dry milk
  • 1 cup Nestle Strawberry Nesquick powdered drink mix


  • Place the white chocolate and dry milk into a food processor (I think a good blender could work also). Process in the ingredients in the food processor until it becomes a nice powder.
  • Add the powder to a bowl and add the strawberry Nesquick mix. Whisk together until well blended with no clumps. (The white chocolate/dry milk mixture likes to clump together)
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • To make hot cocoa, add 2 Tbsp of this mixture into 6 oz hot milk (I even used Skim) or water and stir until well combined and the mixture has dissolved. This makes about 12 servings.
