  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips


  • Combine all ingredients (almond milk, chocolate chips, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, and vanilla or peppermint extract) in a small saucepan.
  • Heat on medium heat. Allow a minute to warm. Whisk until chocolate chips melt and combine completely with the almond milk. Heat to desired temperature.
  • Pour hot chocolate into two small mugs. Top with whipped coconut cream, and candy cane shavings. Use a candy can as a stirrer to make this an extra special holiday treat!


  1. Use good quality vegan chocolate chips. This will create a rich, thick and creamy texture. 
  2. Use plain unsweetened almond milk. This way you'll have control over the flavor.
