Cooking Made Easy: Vegan Hot Chocolate

vegan hot chocolate healthy low calorie almond milk

I must admit that the combination of the Holiday season and my exams nearing doesn't make me the healthiest person on earth. Well actually this is a huge understatement 'cause the truth is that I really can't stay away from chocolate, cookies and co. Ooops... But that doesn't keep me from eating lots of fruits and veggies every day and it also doesn't keep me from trying healthier alternatives like this vegan almond milk. At first I was a bit skeptical but if you manage to find the right balance between all ingredients you'll end up with a hot chocolate that tastes too good to be healthy!

250ml almond milk
2 tbsp real cocoa powder
1ml stevia (optional)

1. Heat the almond milk in a small pot.
2. Add the cocoa powder (maybe start off with 1 tbsp and see if you need more) and a generous amount of cinnamon.
3. Sweeten with stevia, honey or any other sweetener of your choice. 1ml of stevia should largely be enough, especially if you chose sweetened almond milk.
4. Enjoy

How do you prefer your hot chocolate? For some not so healthy and definitely not vegan versions check out my White Coconut Hot Chocolate or my Hot Speculoos Milk.


  1. I'm exactly the same when it's nearing exam time, so I'll definitely be giving this a go :) I've recently tried soya milk in hot drinks and really like it, so i'll have to give this a go soon :) xx
