Whether you want a sweet and simple gift or a delicious easy go-to treat at home, making the best vegan hot chocolate is only a few steps away.
Why this vegan cocoa mix is the BEST
With only 4 ingredients, this vegan hot chocolate mix is really easy to make.
You can pre-make a large batch so when you’re ready for a nice cup of cocoa all you need to do is add your favorite non-dairy milk and microwave.
Ingredients for Vegan Cocoa Mix
For the best vegan hot chocolate mix, you only need a few simple ingredients:
Cocoa Powder. Try and find good quality cocoa. Many brands offer pure organic cocoa that is fairtrade for a few dollars more than the conventional brands. I like this one (affiliate) by Trader Joe’s.
Coconut Sugar. I love that coconut sugar is more natural than conventional white sugar. It also adds a delicious caramel flavor to the hot cocoa that you don’t want to miss. I just got a huge bag from Yupik (af) that’s going to last me forever!
Vanilla Bean Powder. This is such an amazing ingredient! It’s powdered vanilla bean-which means you can add it to your dry hot cocoa mix! I love the flavor it adds to my mix! This one (af) is really affordable, all organic, and vegan of course!
Dandies Vegan Marshmallows. I love adding the mini dandies (af) to my hot cocoa mix. Dandies are gelatin-free and 100% delicious!
Hot Cocoa Makes a Great Gift!
Dress up this vegan cocoa mix in a classic mason jar, topped with the mini marshmallows!
Anchor has this super cute set (af) of jars with lids. I love how the jars have a handle. And they each come with a little tag attached so you can write a message to that special someone.
