I hate slurping noises. Detest them. I have come very close to screaming at people who have slurped anywhere in my vicinity. But there is something incredibly satisfying about slurping away at a vegan hot chocolate. Especially when it is as good as this one.

Most vegan hot chocolate tastes too sugary, overly artificial tasting, or just plain bland. That was until I stumbled across the chocolatey goodness that is hot cacao in Mexico. It is so thick and creamy and it tastes like chocolate.

Since then I have been religiously making vegan hot chocolates with a simple cacao powder mix. If you love chocolate, which you should if you are searching for a hot chocolate, then you’ll love this.

Servings: 1 mug

Blender method:

  • Blend until it forms a smooth lumpless paste
  • Pour the cacao paste into a saucepan with the remaining milk and mix together
  • Put the saucepan on a medium-high heat and bring to the boil, make sure to keep stirring throughout
  • Take off the heat and pour into your favourite mug

Whisk method:

  • Pour all of the plant-based milk into a saucepan and put on a medium-high heat
  • Bring the milk to a boil and then lower the heat
  • Whisk in the cacao powder and syrup until the mix is smooth
  • Take off the heat and pour into your favourite mug
