Hot Cocoa

My room-mate has been snuggled up on our couch sick for two days, so to cheer her up I made her some of my 'not-as-naughty' vegan & gluten free Hot Cocoa. This recipe serves 1, but I doubled it so I could have some too!  This recipe is quite chocolatey, if you don't like it quite so rich, you can leave out some of the chocolate chips or use less cocoa.

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon gluten free vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

  1. Place the almond milk & cocoa powder in a small saucepan & warm over a low/medium heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Once warm, add the chocolate chips, continuously whisking until melted.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, agave nectar & optional cinnamon, stir until fully combined & the chocolate mix is steaming.
  4. Pour into your favourite mug, and serve. :)
To make this yummy 'not-as-naughty' treat extra indulgent, you can serve with vegan, gluten free marshmallows & topped with coconut cream.
