Vegan Hot Cocoa


unknown

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1.5 Tbsp dairy-free semisweet chocolate (chips or bar, chopped)
  • Sweetener of choice (I prefer 1 Tbsp raw sugar or 1/2 packet powdered stevia)
  • 1/8th tsp peppermint extract (optional)
  • Optional: Coconut whipped cream for topping

METHOD:

  1. Add almond milk to a large mug and microwave for 1 minute. Alternatively, add to a saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Once milk is warm, add cocoa powder, chocolate and sweetener and whisk to combine.
  3. Put back in microwave or continue cooking on stove top until completely combined and has reached your preferred temperature.
  4. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed.
  5. Lastly, add in your extract of choice – I think peppermint is truly unbeatable. Stir, and top with coconut whipped cream.
