Sweet, creamy vegan hot cocoa! Made with 3 ingredients, it’s a must for snuggling up with during your favorite Christmas movie.
Are you guys ready?! With Christmas just days away, I’m basking in the glow of my Christmas tree lights as much as possible, finding excuses to walk and drive around at night to look at the beautiful lights, and the Christmas music playlist has been on repeat for days (okay fine, months) now.
The Grinch mug is optional, but HIGHLY recommended.
This vegan hot cocoa is made with just three healthy ingredients – pea milk, cocoa powder, and stevia. I use unsweetened pea milk rather than almond milk for the amazingly thick texture. Add some cocoa powder, I always use extra dark, and some stevia for sweetness! That’s it. I would say you can mix it by hand, but a blender really is the best way to go because cocoa powder is annoying AF and hates mixing into anything, as you can see by the cute (NOT) chunks in the top of mine here.
So if you aren’t like me and don’t strangely enjoy chunky chocolate on top of your vegan hot cocoa (I really do like it, ask my husband, I’ve choked on dry cocoa powder WAY too many times, but it’s worth it), blend it up, then you can heat it up on the stovetop or in the microwave. THEN you can put it in a little thermos and drive around to look at the lights one last time!
This vegan hot cocoa is so easy to throw together, even on the most busy days leading up to Christmas! Rich, creamy, and full of chocolate flavor. Wishing you all the merriest of days leading up to the most magical one of the year.
Have a happy, healthy day!
