Vegan Hot Chocolate


Vegan Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate is one of the easiest things to make and such a treat in the winter!

My four year old son Noah feels as though it’s a must after we have been out in the snow. I’m pretty sure it’s because he saw it on Curious George. In any case, I make it a lot!

I heat 3 cups rice milk in a sauce pan and add about 1/4 cup of vegan chocolate chips (I like ‘Enjoy Life’), then I stir in 1 tablespoon sugar and keep stirring while the chocolate chips melt.

When it’s ready I add a few marshmallows, an ice cube to cool it down and we are all set!

I recommend Sweet & Sara or Dandies vegan marshmallows. I have to order S & S on line, but I can buy Dandies at Whole Foods so I usually go with Dandies. I do think that some Whole Foods carry S & S – just not mine unfortunately.

Next time you and your brood are out in the snow, take a few minutes when you come in to make everyone a treat that will warm you up and bring a smile to your faces!


3 Cups Rice Milk (soy or almond are also fine)

1/4 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips

A few marshmallows to top it off
