Vegan hot chocolate recipe: How to make vegan hot chocolate

Hot chocolate is one of the most comforting drinks and can be made to suit a range of dietary requirements. The sweet treat can also be added to, creating mocha, peppermint or even peanut butter flavours.

You can use any plant milk which heats well, depending on your preference. This can be oat, soya, coconut, almond or any other.

Then, use any good tasting vegan chocolate to melt into it. Chocolate chips are also fine to melt in.

Enjoy it plain or top with vegan whipped cream. Top it with whipped coconut cream or any vegan cream of your choice.

You can even find vegan marshmallows or top with chocolate shavings for a sweeter taste.
