Almond Joy Hot Chocolate - Vegan Style

I love hot chocolate, as do my kids. I hate buying it when we're out and about though because it is either cow's milk based, full of sugar, expensive or all of the above. When we're at home though, all bets are off and I've become a master at busting out fantastic plant based hot chocolates. Today I got a little extra creative and totally nailed this recipe on the first shot. I was just making it up as I went along and am so glad I documented what I used so I can recreate it.

Almond Joy Hot Chocolate
*Vegan / Plant Based

  • 4 cups of your favorite unsweetened plant based milk - I used organic rice milk
  • 1/4 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup liquid sweetener such as organic agave or pure maple syrup (I used maple)
  • 1/4 tsp Almond Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Creamed Coconut such as this one
Optional Topping to be loaded into a whipper
  • 1 Can Full fat coconut milk (you won't use the whole thing)
  • 2 Tbsp Agave

Heat all ingredients together over warm heat until the creamed coconut has dissolved. There will be some little pieces of coconut floating in there.

Pour into a mug and enjoy.

Optional - I added a bit of coconut whipped cream (full fat coconut milk from a can + agave + vanilla in my whipper) and a sprinkling of toasted coconut on top.
