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. :-)

Ingredients (2 coffee mugs)
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup raw sugar (you may want to add more sugar if you don't like a bitter hot chocolate)
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cups of almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder raw sugar, salt and 2 tbsp of the almond milk.
Warm for about 3 mins on med-lo heat.
Then add in the remaining almond milk.
Increase the heat to medium and whisk occasionally until hot.
Remove from heat and mix in vanilla extract.
If you prefer a frothy hot chocolate, blend for a few seconds in a blender.
Serve with vegan marshamallows
