Print Friendly

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.

Ingredients

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.

Only 3 ingredients necessary for my delicious hot chocolate.  Milk of choice, raw cacao powder and a natural sweetener.
