Advent Hot Chocolate- A Liturgical Recipe For Catholic Kids

During this Advent Season in the Catholic church, what sounds like a better treat than some good ‘ol hot chocolate? I think you will be surprised at how easy this Advent recipe for kids is to make! When you’re trying to focus on the true meaning of the Advent season (and not have it completely skipped by the world jumping straight into Christmas) one of the easiest ways to do that is to make a few things pink and purple (the colors of the Advent season) rather than red and green. So here you go- a super fun and easy recipe for your kids this Advent- pink and purple hot chocolate! 

Kids always seem to remember things better when I include a fun activity, and I thought this hot chocolate would be just the trick! Plus, if you’re going to be making Christmasy treats, you may as well use your time to turn your children back towards the reason for this season… Jesus! And this recipe is so so easy… you are going to be blown away with how simple this is to make!

Advent Hot Chocolate Recipe


  • 1 cup strawberry milk
  • whipped cream (the canned spray stuff is good for this)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 drop pink food coloring
  • 1 drop purple food coloring

First, put 1 tablespoon of your sugar on a plate with 1 drop of pink food coloring, and your other tablespoon of sugar on the other side with a drop of purple food coloring. Stir it around, mixing it well with a fork.

Take your strawberry milk and warm it for 45 seconds in the microwave in a glass measuring cup. Move it to your desired drinking glass. Top your pink hot chocolate with whipped cream and the pink and purple sugar.

This is a fun treat to enjoy with your kids this Advent season! I love when living the liturgical year is fun, and also when it’s tasty!
