Hot chocolate is a comforting drink that can be a great treat on cold winter evenings. This beverage can either be extremely processed, artificial and unhealthy, or natural and healthy. It all depends on the ingredients you use. The choice is yours. It is just as easy to make the healthy vegan hot chocolate, so give it a try.
Forget about those hot chocolate pre mixed packages filled with artificial flavouring, corn syrup and more. So many ingredients. So unnecessary. Listed below are the ingredients of Nestle’s Hot Chocolate mix found on their website .
SUGAR, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL (MAY CONTAIN COCONUT, PALM KERNEL AND/OR SOYBEAN OIL), MODIFIED MILK INGREDIENTS, COCOA, CELLULOSE GUM, SALT, DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, SILICON DIOXIDE, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOUR, MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, GUAR GUM, SODIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE.
Hydrogenated vegetable oil? No thank you. Not in my hot chocolate. Would you like any in yours?
Only 3 ingredients necessary for my delicious hot chocolate. Milk of choice, raw cacao powder and a natural sweetener.
Vegan Hot Chocolate
1 1/4 cup of almond milk
1 tablespoon raw organic cacao powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar or syrup (or maple syrup)
In a small saucepan over medium high heat, bring the almond milk to a boil. As soon as the milk starts to boil remove it form the heat. This will not take very long.
Fill a mug 1/4 of the way full. Add the cacao powder and stir well. Now pour in the rest of the almond milk and stir. Add the agave syrup and mix well. Taste and adjust sweetness to your liking.
