This rich vegan hot cocoa has a double dose of chocolaty goodness. The cocoa powder adds depth while the dairy-free chocolate chips add richness.
You can use your milk beverage of choice, but keep in mind that some might curdle (like soymilk) or become a little thick (like pea protein milk).
Special Diet Notes: Chocolaty Vegan Hot Cocoa
By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, soy-free, vegan, plant-based, vegetarian, and optionally allergy-friendly.
- Put the milk beverage, chocolate chips, sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla in a small saucepan and whisk to combine.
- Place the pan over medium-low heat, and heat, while whisking, until the chocolate is melted and the beverage is very hot.
- Let cool to your desired temperature before serving.
Creamy Tip: To make this hot cocoa even creamier, use 8 ounces of milk beverage and 4 ounces of dairy-free creamer.
Serving Options: Top with marshmallows. And don’t be shy! If you love chocolate, dribble a few chips on top for an extra chocolaty bite. It makes a pretty decoration too (any excuse for chocolate is good)! Or stir with a candy cane to add a dose of festive peppermint flavor. OR top it with dairy-free whipped cream and some more chocolate chips!
