Recipe: Vegan Hot Cocoa

Cozy up with this delicious vegan drink after a cold winter day. Using rich dark chocolate and creamy almond milk, you can enjoy every bit of the classic taste you know from childhood. I add just a touch of peppermint extract to give it that minty holiday flavor, but you could easily substitute vanilla extract for a more subtle taste if you’re not a fan of mint. Either way, be sure to top it all off with a few vegan marshmallows or some coconut whipped cream for the full effect!
