Vegan Hot Chocolate

Vegan Hot Chocolate

When the colder months hit in I crave hot chocolate all the time. There is not much better than holding your hands around a steaming mug of hot coco. I love trying hot chocolate at every place that has a vegan hot chocolate and comparing and making notes. From my various hot chocolate encounters I have been working on my own recipe. Hemp milk I have decided is my favorite hot chocolate milk, it brings a delicious nutty, earthy sweet taste. This hot chocolate is not only delicious but also highly nutritious and at only 98 calories it is a great healthy treat. The cacao powder (not cocoa powder) and the hemp milk are the key components of what makes this hot chocolate packed full of nutrients.
