Easy vegan peppermint hot chocolate recipe

vegan peppermint hot chocolate

With Christmas in full swing, we're indulging in a few bits here and there, like an early mince pie, or a hot cup of mulled wine.  One thing that I absolutely adore during the holidays is a nice cuppa hot chocolate, even better when its vegan too.
Pairing perfectly with chocolate is peppermint, and a dynamic duo of Christmas as well. So I've mixed them together to bring you a truly scrumptious holiday treat, enjoy!


  • 500ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 100g vegan dark chocolate, chopped or grated
  • 3 tablespoons of your sweetener of choice, such as granular or maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract, add more to taste
  • Vegan marshmallows 
  • Crushed peppermint for topping


  • In a small sauce pan heat the milk and add the chocolate
  • Add your peppermint extract and sugar
  • Stir until the chocolate is melted and all ingredients are combined
  • When the cocoa is near boiling serve in a mug topped with your marshmallows and crushed peppermint

This vegan peppermint hot chocolate recipe is great because you can customise it to your liking. Add a bit more sweetener or extract to your taste and enjoy with your loved ones, or why not leave a cup out for Father Christmas.

Happy Christmas everyone!
