VEGAN PEPPERMINT HOT CHOCOLATE

Vegan peppermint hot chocolate

Ingredients [serves 2]

Handful of fresh mint leaves

1 tablespoon coconut sugar

1/2 cup water

1 cup non-dairy milk (I used rice milk, because its subtle flavour doesn’t compete with the mint)

2 tablespoons cacao powder

Method

In a small pot, stir the water over low heat, adding in the coconut sugar and mint leaves. Leave to simmer for about 5 minutes. Take it off the heat and fish out all the mint leaves, leaving behind the mint infused sugar water. To this water, add the milk – put the pot back on the stove and whilst heating again on low heat, stir in the cacao powder. Whisk it vigorously until any powdery clumps have disappeared. Pour into your favourite drinking vessels and enjoy!
