The ultimate and simple vegan hot chocolate drink recipe (organic cocoa)

Vegan hot cocoa chocolate drink recipe

A most wonderful hot drink which fills you with warmth and comfort from the inside out. It is especially comforting during the winter times but also on a monthly basis for us women when extra body comfort, self-love, and hydration is needed. 

Ingredients: (for one) 

45 grams of organic vegan dark chocolate bar (or any you fancy)
1 cup of hazelnut milk 
1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar (if you choose sweeter chocolate then skip the sugar)
sprinkle of salt 

Chop up or grate your chocolate and place it on a small saucer. 

Heat your hazelnut milk (or any plant-based milk), sugar and salt in a microwave or in a pot (so it almost reaches boiling, if you overheat the milk, let it cool down for a while or the drink will be a bit grainy). 

Melt your chocolate in two 15 seconds intervals (so it melts but does not burn).

Stir in your melted chocolate and make sure all combine well. 


TIP: if you wish to re-hat your chocolate again then make sure again that you do not bring it to boil as that can alter the taste. 

TIP2: For an extra kick, you can add plant-based whipped cream, chili or sprinkle it with cinnamon.

    1. Hello! So glad to read your kind comment :)
      Hope you are much well. Yes, the hazelnut milk pairs perfectly with the cocoa in my opinion, too.
      The stronger the hazelnut milk, the better.
      Hope to see you visiting again soon :)


  4. I really need to try it! I looove hot chocolate, but I also love that ones that aren't too liquid.

    Have a lovely weekend 💕

    1. Yes, I really do hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
      If you really wanted a very thick chocolate (but would not like to add too many calories) you could
      also thicken it a little with cornstarch as that is an ingredient I can not live without in cooking.
      Thank you for stopping by and hope to see you back soon again :)

  5. oh wow this looks so delicious! I often have a hot chocolate and with hazelnut milk makes it even better xx

    1. Thank you dear, yes, I agree, hazelnut in hot chocolate is just the best marriage:)
      Than you for stopping by:)
