  • Yield: 4 cups 1x


Traditionally, tablea tsokolate is made with tablea, milk or water, and a bit of sugar. But if you want to kick it up a notch, try topping it with some whipped cream, cacao powder, chocolate syrup, or even bits of broken up tablea.



  • 360 ml (1 1/2 cup) water
  • 360 ml (1 1/2 cup) milk
  • 6 (60 grams) tablea, unsweetened
  • 55 grams (1/4 cup) sugar

Optional Toppings:

  • whipped cream
  • cacao powder
  • chocolate syrup


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, boil the water, milk, and tablea tablets. Whisk occasionally to ensure that the tablea tablets are dissolved.
  2. Once the mixture has boiled, add the sugar.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved. 
  4. Remove from heat. Whisk using a batirol or a frother until the mixture turns frothy.
  5. Transfer to individual cups and top with selected toppings.


  • Check if you are using sweetened or unsweetened tablea. You can omit the sugar if you are using the sweetened version. 
  • Cream may be substituted for the milk. The resulting drink will be thicker.
  • Add more tablea for a richer and stronger chocolate taste.
