Almond-Milk Hot Choclate

Hot chocolate is the ultimate hygge experience. Making your own from scratch is easier than you think, and worth the extra 5 minutes it takes to prep with simple ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Almond-Milk Hot Choclate

1 cup almond or cashew milk (opt for a creamier brand, like Elmhurst)

1 1/2 tablespoons organic sugar

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 organic candy cane (optional)

Microwave the milk in a heat-proof measuring cup until steamy, about 1 1/2 minutes.

In a mug, add the sugar and cocoa. Pour the steamed milk into the mug and whisk until smooth.

Drip in the vanilla and serve with a candy cane.

Makes 1 serving

Cook and prep time: 5 minutes
