Vegan Hot Chocolate Recipe


The snow is still here (*side eye*), so I wanted to share a simple hot chocolate recipe that I enjoy with the fam.

You only need cocoa powder, raw sugar, salt, almond milk and vanilla extract to make this recipe.
I usually top ours with lots of marshmallows because I go overboard with everything. lol

Speaking of marshmallows, did you know the conventional ones aren't vegan? 

They're actually made out of pig skin and bones. Nasty, right?

No worries-You can easily buy vegan ones from Whole Foods and Amazon (I've seen about 3 brands out there) or just skip the marshmallows. I purchased ours from a local health food store and used the Dandies brand.

Let me know what you think when you try the recipe. :-)

Stay warm...unless you're on a beach or something. If that's the case get offline and have some fun. :-)
