Just Us! Vegan Dark Hot Chocolate

| Posted on: Nov. 27, 2018

Vegan Dark Hot Chocolate (makes 2 servings)

  • 400ml non-dairy milk of choice 
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (we like Camino - it’s organic & fair trade)
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Just Us! Instant Coffee (optional)
  • 1/2 Just Us! Dark Chocolate Bar, chopped

In a small saucepan, over medium low heat, whisk together non-dairy milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, salt, vanilla and instant coffee (if using). Once warm, add your chopped chocolate, stirring constantly so the chocolate doesn't stick and burn to the bottom of your pot. Once your chocolate has melted, and the mixture has reached the temperature you desire, pour into two mugs and enjoy!

Tip: For an extra thick and decadent hot chocolate try using a 13.5oz can of organic coconut milk as your non-dairy milk of choice smile
