Homemade Vegan Hot Chocolate

I love drinking hot chocolate when it’s snowing outside! Especially with I’m drinking it with fresh popcorn.
This recipe makes 1-2 mugs of hot chocolate. Feel free to double it if you need more!
Here’s what you need to make it:
3 cups of water
1 cup of non-dairy milk
3 tablespoons of pure cocoa
3-5 tablespoons of coconut sugar*
1 dash of vanilla
To start off, put a pot on the stove with three cups of water and the three tablespoons of cocoa on medium heat. Whisk the water and the cocoa until all the cocoa chunks are dissolved in the water.
Gradually add the sugar and continue to whisk the ingredients. Add a dash of vanilla.
After all the sugar is dissolved, then add the non-dairy milk to the pan. Continue to stir the ingredients while the milk gets warm.
Pour in a mug and enjoy!
*NOTE: You can add less sugar if you are trying to cut back on calories. I would recommend adding at least three tablespoons of sugar because the cocoa is bitter.
