Vegan Hot Chocolate


Vegan Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate is one of the easiest things to make and such a treat in the winter!

My four year old son Noah feels as though it’s a must after we have been out in the snow. I’m pretty sure it’s because he saw it on Curious George. In any case, I make it a lot!

I heat 3 cups rice milk in a sauce pan and add about 1/4 cup of vegan chocolate chips (I like ‘Enjoy Life’), then I stir in 1 tablespoon sugar and keep stirring while the chocolate chips melt.

When it’s ready I add a few marshmallows, an ice cube to cool it down and we are all set!

I recommend Sweet & Sara or Dandies vegan marshmallows. I have to order S & S on line, but I can buy Dandies at Whole Foods so I usually go with Dandies. I do think that some Whole Foods carry S & S – just not mine unfortunately.

Next time you and your brood are out in the snow, take a few minutes when you come in to make everyone a treat that will warm you up and bring a smile to your faces!


3 Cups Rice Milk (soy or almond are also fine)

1/4 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips

1 Tbls Sugar

A few marshmallows to top it off

    Holy Grail of Cocoa: ¬†i adore cocoa so much that i drink it year round, cold in the summer. ¬†so when i became vegan i was distraught that every alternative milk i tried tasted terrible with cocoa. ¬†think of it like painting walls with red paint – it seems like a dark color but in fact, it’s the sheerest and if you don’t use dark primer, it will never look right. ¬†likewise, chocolate seems like an intense flavor but it is easily overwhelmed by anything other than cow’s milk, often leaving behind an aftertaste of rope (despite so many recommendations of adding cinnamon/cayenne) or too watery.

    finally, in desperation, i tried the very last alternative milk on the market, Pacific Brand’s non-dairy OAT milk. ¬†cocoa nirvana at last: ¬†it’s creamy enough, doesn’t compete with the taste of cocoa and leaves no aftertaste. ¬†i sweeten mine with a PINCH of organic stevia (man, that stuff is potent!). ¬†NOW try all those vegan cocoa recipes!

    if you just adore soy milk or some other variety, add all the cocoa to it that you want.  but if what you want is the pure, unadulterated cocoa that God and Mr. Hershey intended, Oat Milk is your ticket to enjoying a true cup of cocoa sans dairy.
