Cozy up to a cup of the best vegan hot cocoa…it’s rich, chocolatey, and perfect for a winter time treat!
Okay, it’s a cold fall morning…you’re chilly, and want a warm drink, maybe hot cocoa…but, oh no! You’re a vegan, or on a dairy free diet. What do you do? What do you do?
Never fear, I have a super simple recipe for dairy free, vegan hot cocoa.
I LOVE hot cocoa. I don’t drink coffee, and hot cocoa was a staple item for me in the winter time. I would so look forward to my Starbucks hot cocoa, but once I stopped eating dairy, Starbucks cocoa was no longer a part of my winter routine.
So I had to figure out how to make yummy vegan hot cocoa at home. Thankfully, it’s surprisingly easy! Using just sugar, cocoa powder, and a non-dairy milk results in a delicious cup of hot chocolate.
Here’s my recipe:
The Best Vegan Hot Cocoa.
This vegan hot cocoa is rich and warming, and a wonderful treat on a chilly day!
Heat the almond milk in a heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat until hot, but not boiling. You do not want to boil it.
Whisk in your cocoa powder, and then your sugar. Whisk until it is smooth without any lumps.
Pour into mugs and enjoy!
Of course, you can use any kind of dairy free milk that works for your diet. I prefer almond milk, because it has a nice creamy texture, but any non-dairy milk will work! You can try coconut milk, soy milk, hemp milk – any plant-based milk will be fine.
This vegan hot cocoa is:
- simple to make
- delicious and rich
- perfect for warming up after playing in the snow
That’s it for today, friends…have a wonderful autumn weekend! I hope you get a chance to sit down with a cup of cocoa and a good book! (And maybe a cookie or two).
