Slowly but surely, the days are getting longer which means spring is just around the corner! However, we are still in winter and the cold weather makes me crave my favorite warming foods and beverages. One of these is hot chocolate. Being plant-based, I enjoy making my own hot chocolate from scratch versus using a pre-packaged one. Not only does this allow you to have more control over the ingredients, but it’s cost effective (you may already have some of the basic ingredients at home), simple and pretty quick to make!
1. Combine almond milk, cocoa powder and chocolate chips together in a pot over medium heat until the chips have melted and everything is well blended.
2. Once it’s all well blended, add in a few dashes of ground cinnamon and turn off the heat.
3. Evenly distribute between two mugs, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
