Okay, so, you think it can’t be good without the milk and sugar, but, I was surprised! I was watching this segment on CBS Sunday Morning about chocolate, you know, the gourmet kind. Sunday morning, a good time to try to make something that was close to what I would like to drink, and, surprisingly, this is pretty good. I’ll give you the basic ingredients, what I used and, if needed, you can adjust.

Mmmm! Vegan Hot Chocolate

1 cup – 365 Organic Almond Milk Unsweetened*
1/2 tsp – 365 organic vanilla
2 tsp – Dagoba Organic Chocolate – Cacao Powder**
2 tsp – Truvia***

* 365 is a Whole Foods brand, the unsweetened is important for me, no added sugar
** it’s important to use a high grade of cocoa and preferably organic
*** or sweetener of your choice, but, this is 0 calorie and safe for diabetics or for those cutting out sugar

Heat almond milk up first, add the vanilla. When this mixture is getting warmer add the cocoa and sweetener. Mix with a whisk, it creates some foam, always fun to sip.

To make it really frothy I used my hand immersion that came with a blender container, because it’s small. But, you could put it into a blender, again this makes it frothy and more yummy. Sit back, sip and enjoy.
