vegan hot cocoa recipeHot Cocoa is the perfect winter treat in my opinion. It brings me back to my childhood and makes the cold seem more bearable. But there’s a vegan hot chocolate recipe that warms my heart even more!

I love this vegan twist on a childhood favorite.  It’s simple, delicious and comforting.

Plus, sometimes it just feels good to make something from “scratch” rather than use a prepackaged food.

Tasty Vegan Hot Cocoa Recipe

Ingredients (serves 1)
  • 1 cup almond or soy milk (I prefer vanilla almond milk, but any variation works)
  • 3 tsp unsweetened organic cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp agave or 1 tbsp organic sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Soywhip (optional)
  • Vegan dark chocolate chips (optional)
  1. Heat milk on the stove at low-medium heat while stirring. Bring to simmer/lightly boiling. (Don’t leave on too long – or the milk will “burn”.)
  2. Heat water in separate pot on stove (or tea kettle) or pop in the microwave for 1.5 – 2 minutes.
  3. Stir cocoa powder and agave or sugar into water to dissolve
  4. Combine mixture with soy milk
  5. Top with soywhip – it’s just like whip cream but even creamier! and/or chocolate chips

Want to make your vegan hot cocoa “Irish”? Just add 2 tbsp of Kahlua or Bailey’s Irish Cream.
