How do you make Vegan hot chocolate?
It is super simple! Just two easy steps, and you’ll be sipping this cozy drink!
- Heat up your dairy free milk, either on the stove or in the microwave.
- Place all the hot cocoa ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth and creamy, about 20 seconds.
- That’s it! Serve it up in your favorite mug with some of our Vegan whipped coconut cream!
Why did you use almond protein powder?
We love that Bob’s Red Mill Almond Protein Powder is a plant based protein powder that you can use for Vegan friendly recipes. It’s made with just one simple ingredient using a simple mechanical process, without chemical solvents. There are no added flavors, colors or sweeteners and it’s non-GMO verified.
We love the reliable quality of Bob’s Red Mill products and have been using their baking flours for years in recipes like these lemon poppy seed muffins or these homemade snickerdoodles. We even use Bob’s Red Mill in savory dishes like our creamy tuscan chicken and our healthy instant pot orange chicken!
