Super Creamy Hot Chocolate with Coconut Milk
This dairy-free hot chocolate is just what you need to warm up on a chilly day. Made vegan with coconut milk, real cacao, and coconut sugar. It's actually thick and creamy, full of deep chocolate flavor, and non dairy. It's the coziness in a mug you'll want to sip on all winter long!
Servings: 2 cups
- 1 cup coconut milk light
- 2 cups unsweetened nut milk (I used almond)
- 3 tablespoon coconut sugar
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon creamy nut butter (I used cashew)
- Optional toppings toasted marshmallows, chopped chocolate, cinnamon, etc.
Heat the coconut milk, nut milk, and coconut sugar in a pot on the stove over medium heat until it reaches a simmer.
Add the cacao powder, vanilla, and nut butter and whisk to incorporate.
Pour into mugs while warm, top with desired toppings, and enjoy!
Coconut milk : Light coconut milk works best for this recipe but if needed, you can use full-fat which will make it even creamier.
Coconut sugar : If needed, substitute with can sugar or maple syrup.
Storing : To store this hot chocolate for later, pout it into a glass jar and keep it in the fridge. When ready to enjoy, warm it up on the stove.
