Vegan Hot Chocolate

I have to admit: I was never a huge fan of hot chocolate. Often times I found it too sweet and warm cow milk … I don’t know.
This winter though, I started making my own hot chocolate. With a little twist: I switched the cow milk with plant milk and used raw cacao instead of those processed and sugary cacao powders that I grew up around. A big part is also spicing the milk up a bit! A bit of cinnamon, vanilla and ginger which gives it a pleasant spiciness. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Hot Chocolate
(For 1 glass; 5 minutes)

1 ½ – 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ginger powder
¼ tsp vanilla
250ml plant milk
2 tsp maple syrup

In a pot combine all ingredients, mix well and heat them up. Pour in a glass and drink while it’s warm.

Welcome to my kitchen, my colourful world of nourishing foods. Here I choose to live healthy, eating whole, plant-based foods; a happy mix of vegetables, legumes, fruits, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

My recipes are simple, vegetarian dishes with plant-based and natural ingredients only. Perfect for everyday life. You do not have to be a skilled cook to have a balanced and healthy diet – I am not! An open mind and willingness to try out something new everyday shall be enough. It’s an infinite journey, and I am happy about everyone who decides to come along.
