This vegan hot cocoa mix is one of the reasons I love switching from processed store bought foods to homemade versions. For your kids or yourself, it’s nice to know exactly what ingredients go into something, to choose those ingredients yourself, and to feel secure that your family isn’t eating anything unhealthy. Often, we fall back onto processed foods for convenience. This mix is one of those convenience foods we can make ourselves!
The mix is quick to make and easy to store. When you are ready for some tasty hot cocoa, just stir 2 tablespoons (per serving) of your mix into a saucepan of hot milk. Top your hot cocoa with vegan marshmallows, coconut whipped cream or dark chocolate shavings. Add a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of cayenne pepper to each mug to make a delectable Mexican hot chocolate.
This recipe makes enough cocoa mix for 16 servings. A jar of cocoa mix makes a great Christmas or hostess gift, too! Just add a nice tag or bow, and you can even include a copy of the recipe.
