I searched long and hard for a delicious vegan hot cocoa recipe, and after trying a few and altering them, I came up with this delectable and healthful concoction:
Here are the measurements for the ingredients pictured above:
Makes 2 Servings of Vegan Superfood Hot Cocoa
- 4 TBSP coconut sugar*
- 4 TSP raw cacao powder**
- 1 TSP coconut oil
- a dash of pumpkin pie spice
*you can also use organic cane or raw sugar, I just prefer coconut due to its health benefits and low glycemic index
**cocoa powder will also work, but using cacao provides more antioxidants and less fat
The ingredients in this hot cocoa are not only ethical, but amazing for you! The cacao has a number of beneficial antioxidants and vitamins from the natural cacao bean, and the coconut sugar and oil give it a balance of healthy fats and also make it a little more creamy :)
Feel free to add any non-dairy milk of your choice as well.
This can be prepared with hot water or non-dairy milk on the stove, but I prefer just using the hot water from my keurig to mix in!
Let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy this superfood hot cocoa!
