Vegan MoFo, Day 18: Hot Chocolate Makes Me Happy!

Sometimes I just want some dang hot chocolate. Now is definitely one of those times.
And I want some whipped "cream." Pronto.

I used the coconut whip recipe from Healthy. Happy. Life. It didn't quite WHIP for me, but I think that's because I only had ONE can of full-fat coconut milk to work with. Still, it made for a yummy syrup, and there's a ton of it that I saved for future cravings.

Here's how my creation turned out:

"MMMmmmmmmm...All Better With Chocolate"
serves 2...but it was all mine!

2-3 cups soymilk
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1 tbsp. bitter dark cocoa powder
splash chocolate extract
1 tbsp. granulated sugar or agave

Heat soymilk in a small saucepan. When warm, add the cocoa powders, extract, and sugar. You can either use a fork or small whisk to stir in the powders. Pour into a mug once hot.

Top with coconut whipped "cream" (read: syrup).

{yes, that's a Mr. Darcy quote, for all you Austen-philes out there}

Now go eat some chocolate!!



  1. That sounds yum . . . and your cup is amazing! :)

  2. Just stopping by to pass on an award, you can check it out at my latest post for the details. I have bookmarked a couple of your recipes which I am looking forward to making. :)

  3. Kathrina, those two cups are my absolute favorite!! Love love love them :D

    Mel, thank you so much!!! That's awesome! I'll have to choose some sites and pass it on.

  4. mmm, hot chocolate is my true love. I drink it all the time. I usually just use some hot cocoa powder, but every once in a while, when I am not so lazy, I make it properly from scratch. Looks great.
