all of a sudden, it’s sweater weather, and i’m totally loving it. here’s a hot chocolate recipe that involves no packets of mystery powder.
- in a saucepan, pour in 1 1/2 cups almond milk and 1 1/2 cups rice milk. i personally think soy milk is too chalky to drink straight, and i like a mixture of thick almond milk and light rice milk.
- turn the heat on medium low, and add in 1/4 cup pure cocoa powder, 1 tbsp sugar and a dash cinnamon. let cook until the milk is warm, stirring occasionally.
- snap apart a block of dark chocolate - throw a handful of chocolate chunks in the pan and turn the heat to low. (many dark chocolate bars are “accidentally vegan”, just check the labels or look for a “vegan” specific logo if you want to be safe.) continuously stir until the chocolate melts in, which should only take a minute or so. (don’t stop stirring, or else it’ll burn.)
- pour into a mug, and enjoy. this should make enough for 1-2 mugs of hot chocolate.
well, it’s still hot here. i can’t wait for hot cocoa time!
