Spiced Hot Chocolate


My take on ‘traditional’ hot chocolate turned out so good. At first I just thought of preparing a simple vegan hot chocolate and call it a day, but later decided to experiment a bit with spices…and I’m so happy I did. 

Spiced Hot Chocolate

I ended up using 9 ingredients in total. Fret not, they’re like super basic spices. Let me show you (I forgot to add Vanilla Extract on the image, sorry about that).

The preparation is super easy – combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat.

Quick note : Plant-based milk (specially soy and almond) can ‘split’ and turn lumpy when boiled over high heat. So I advise you heat it on a slow simmer over medium heat.

The chocolate has a warm ‘pumpkin pie spice’ feel to it. I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did. 🙂
