Hot cocoa is the perfect drink for me when I’m feeling cold… and just plain wintery. The hint of peppermint certainly will light up your spirits and add a touch of holiday cheer to any day. This stuff is simple and fast to prepare, and very warming for these chilly winter nights. Add a touch of your favorite liquor for a great drink to unwind to… or some whipped soy cream for an extra special treat for the kiddies.
Vegan Peppermint Hot Cocoa
- 1/4-1/2 cup granulated sugar, depending on your sweet tooth
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 candy cane, crushed into pretty small pieces
- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk, or your favorite unsweetened non-dairy milk
- 1/4 tsp salt
Whisk together all ingredients in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir gently until all candy cane particles are dissolved, and it is the perfect temperature for you to enjoy.
Pour evenly into two mugs.
Top with whipped- soy cream or drop in a whole candy cane.
