Vegan Mexican Hot Chocolate

Sometimes we just need a little hot cocoa to pass the long, cold days of winter. This spicy and luxurious drink will warm you from the inside out on a chilly day.  It is made from scratch using the perfect blend of spices for a spectacular sweet and spicy decadent combo.

Made with creamy plant-based milk, it is super thick – all without a hint of dairy. It is lightly sweetened and full of rich dark chocolate flavor.  Add it to your Valentine’s Day menu for a steamy romantic drink to sip fireside with your loved one!

  4. Stir frequently to avoid burning the chocolate.
  5. Pour the heated milk and melted chocolate into a blender and add remaining ingredients (cocoa powder, honey, vanilla and spices).
  6. Blend for 10 seconds on the blender’s highest speed and then 5 seconds on the lowest speed to make the drink frothy.
  7. Immediately pour the drink into a mug and garnish as desired.
  8. Enjoy immediately while hot.

    Yum!. I saw spicy; meaning “run” but then on a second thought, my husband is from New Mexico, therefore his middle name is “spicy”. And the images are to die for, ingredient list just on point for our dairy free family. Thanks Elaine for sharing another great recipe.
