I’ve been itching to try making vegan hot chocolate for some time and finally got around to tying it. And it is ridiculously chocolately!
None of that watery, sort of chocolate flavour drink. Pure, rich chocolate flavour!
Vegan Hot Chocolate
Adapted from Allrecipes.com
- 1 1/4 cups almond milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp agave nectar
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tbsp vegan chocolate, shaved
In a saucepan, add the almond milk, cocoa powder, sea salt, vanilla extract, agave, cinnamon and nutmeg and cook on medium-high heat, stirring every so often.
Next, shave the chocolate with a zester and add to the saucepan. Stir.
When the mixture begins to bubble a bit (about 10-12 minutes), remove from heat and pour into desired cup.
You can add whatever adornments you wish, however I kept mine simple 🙂
