This Homemade Vegan Salted Hot Chocolate is so delicious and easy to make! It will be ready in about 5 minutes and you’ll want to make it again and again!
Ingredients for Homemade Vegan Salted Hot Chocolate
All you need for this simple recipe is 5 ingredients! You most likely have them all on hand as well:
- Your favorite non-dairy milk (I’ve tested this recipe with soy and cashew milk, but I’m confident that any non-dairy milk will work.)
- Cocoa powder
- Dairy-free chocolate chips (Hu Chocolate or Enjoy Life are my go to brands)
- Sugar in the raw
- Sea salt
If you do not need to be dairy-free then you can use regular milk and any chocolate chips for this recipe! The amount of sugar in the raw used will depend on if your milk is sweetened or unsweetened.
How to make vegan hot chocolate
To make this vegan hot chocolate, first grab your favorite microwave-safe mug. Add the milk and microwave for about 1 minute and 20 seconds. Remove the mug from the microwave and add the remining ingredients. Use a whisk to stir them in well. Next, return the mug to the microwave for another 60 seconds. Then, stir again and enjoy! If desired, top with vegan whip cream or marshmallows.
To make a double or trip batch this can be made on the stove if preferred. Just heat the milk and stir in the ingredients. Be careful not to burn the milk.
