Written By: Layla

It's cold outside and this time of year is when most of us stay indoors after a long day at work.

Think about it, there's nothing better than snuggling up on the couch, watching TV or a film and enjoying a cup of hot chocolate - the best part? It's vegan!

The BEST Vegan Hot Chocolate Recipe - What You Need

Here's everything you need to make the best vegan hot chocolate. Full of flavour, creamy and perfect for an evening treat after a long day.

Alpro Vanilla Milk

Before writing about the other ingredients, I have to write about thhe Alpro Vanilla Milk. It tastes amazing - I really mean amazing! Not only does this give the hot chocolate a lovely flavour but it adds a creamy texture to the drink. If you haven't tried this - I highly recommend it.

Organic Cocoa Powder

That's it! That's all you need to make this hot chocolate - two items. Below, you'll be able to see some optional items but I find the above works fine for me...

Optional Items



Dark Chocolate

Cornstarch can be used if you want to make your hot chocolate creamier. Can also be added to make a chocolate sauce.

Sugar can be added to suit your taste but I find when using the Alpro Vanilla Milk, it's sweet enough and works really well.

The same goes for dark chocolate - if you want a really rich treat, add a few pieces to the saucepan or use it to make chocolate shavings to sprinkle over!


Method - How To Make

Even though this tastes amazing, this is really easy to make and if you're anything like me, you'll be making this quite a few times - especially with the cold weather here in the UK!

For the quantity, it all depends on the amount of people you're making this hot chocolate for.

Just think, 1 standard-sized mug = 1 person.

Vegan Hot Chocolate - Method

In a small saucepan, add 1-2 standard-sized mugs of the Alpro Vanilla Milk.

Add 2-3 teaspoons of Organic Cocoa Powder.

Turn on the heat and stir the mixture - letting it simmer, not boil.

Stir the hot chocolate for a few minutes, keeping an eye on the colour and texture. You can adjust to taste, add more cocoa powder for a darker colour. (Optional ingredients can be added here too)

Keep the mixture on the heat and turn it up slightly - if there's little bubbles appearing, remove from the heat and serve.

Additional - if you have dark chocolate available, create some chocolate shavings and sprinkle over for an extra chocolatey treat!

As you can see, this is the easiest but BEST vegan hot chocolate recipe! It tastes amazing and if you haven't tried the Alpro Vanilla Milk - please do! It's just that good!
