Easy dairy free hot chocolate recipe ❅

Being lactose intolerant it can be difficult to find hot chocolate recipes that I can actually have. Most of the pre-made ones contain milk powder or other dairy ingredients. So I did some research and figured out how to make a creamy hot chocolate that has no milk. You can also add orange oil or a candy cane if you want flavoured hot chocolate.

You will need:

❅ 2 heaped tablespoons Cocoa powder
❅ 2 tablespoons sugar (or until desired taste)
❅ Dairy free milk alternative i.e soy or almond
❅ A cute mug
❅ Marshmallows

Optional

❅ Orange oil or a candy cane
❅ Coconut milk

1. Measure the milk by filling the mug and pouring it into a saucepan
2. Mix the cocoa powder and sugar
3. Heat the milk until it is about to boil and then add the cocoa powder sugar mixture (add orange oil now if desired)
4. Let simmer, mixing continuously until the cocoa powder is well combined
5. Take off heat and pour into mug
6. Add coconut whipped cream
7. Add marshmallows and candy cane
8. Enjoy!

Coconut Whipped cream instructions
Refrigerate coconut milk ahead of time (24 hours is best). Put whisks in freezer 10- 15 minutes before removing can from fridge. Open can and scoop out hard coconut cream that has settled on top, whip for 3 to 4 minutes, adding sugar honey or maple sugar if you want it to be sweeter.

I hope you found this recipe helpful!
