This Is The Vegan Hot Chocolate That Will Warm You All Winter Long

All the creaminess, none of the milk.
This Is The Vegan Hot Chocolate That Will Warm You All Winter Long

One of the few respites from winter's harsh winds is the mighty, creamy, and oh-so-rich hot chocolate. A staple of all ski-lodges and chocolatiers, a decadent (and warming) hot chocolate can also be made in the comfort of your own kitchen, and vegan-ized, to better fit your dietary needs. Here is the Super Creamy Vegan Hot Chocolate that will be warming your heart throughout the entire season, by Veggie & The Beast.

Taking out milk from a hot chocolate recipe is pretty simple. One could go the coconut milk route, though as the recipe notes, that'll increase the fat content of the beverage. You may not care (your waistline shouldn't really be considered when making hot chocolate) but if you do, just use almond milk, with some arrowroot starch added, to make a lower in calorie and fat hot chocolate.

Overall, the recipe is actually kind of good for you, so you don't need to feel bad about sippin' on a hot mug of velvety cocoa-richness. As the author notes, this vegan HC is high in dietary fiber, manganese, magnesium, vitamin A, and vitamin E. Score one for healthy but still delicious eating, or drinking, to be precise.

Making the Super Creamy Vegan Hot Chocolate couldn't be simpler. Just whisk the dry ingredients (cocoa powder + sugar + arrowroot starch + salt), heat up the almond milk & vanilla, then add the two together on the stove to heat through. Get the specifics at the original recipe right here, and to entice you this morn, feast your eyes on the pics below.
