You know what’s super amazing about this vegan hot chocolate?
It’s better than any hot chocolate I had before I was vegan! Yip, I said it!
That good, and it’s only 4-ingredients, 5 if you add vegan whipped cream on top (and you should definitely add vegan whipped cream on top!).
It’s just a case of heating some non-dairy milk in a saucepan with some cocoa until simmering, and then melting in some vegan chocolate, add brown sugar to taste, pour out into glasses, top with vegan cream and voilá – a taste sensation!
I considered two tablespoons of sugar to be perfect (one tablespoon per serve), but I like the sweet stuff, so that’s why I’m going to say ‘to taste’ in the recipe.
But let’s be real, this is a sweet recipe! It’s hot chocolate! It’s rich, chocolatey dreamy deliciousness! Feel free to top with vegan marshmallows if you have some of those on hand.
You will love this delicious vegan hot chocolate, it is:
- Quick and easy!
It’s perfect for cold nights, or when there’s a little nip in the air, or you know, the wind is blowing a little.
Put your feet up and enjoy!

*I prefer soy milk for this as it’s thicker/richer, but almond milk also works great.
*I used 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp per serve) but this does make it a very sweet drink, so use according to taste.
*Nutritional information includes 2 Tbsp of brown sugar but excludes additional toppings like vegan whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
