Who doesn’t love hot chocolate? With cow milk, almond, rice or any other milk a hot chocolate is just amazing anytime of the day. Hot chocolate is there when you are happy or sad, when you are celebrating or when you have a broken heart. Chocolate is your best friend. Keep it very close and spend time with your friends as often you like.
I know I am. So, if I don’t want that my friend to become an enemy I make myself a vegan sugar-free hot chocolate.
- 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- ½ tablespoon maple syrup
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup of almond milk
- ¼ teaspoon homemade vanilla-rum extract
Whisk together the cocoa, maple syrup, salt and about 2 tablespoons of milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until cocoa is dissolved. Add the rest of the milk, whisking occasionally until is hot. Stir in the vanilla and serve.
I decorated with vegetarian, sugar-free whip cream. Enjoy!
The first chocolate is believed to have created by the Maya around 2,000 years ago. By 1400 AD, a cocoa beverage was essential part of Aztec culture.
