Vegan Hot Chocolate with Maca
Recipe Type: Drink
Made with frothed nondairy milk, like soy or almond, this rich hot chocolate is boosted with superfood maca for a malty flavor and a jolt of energy.
  • 1½ cup soy milk
  • 4 tbsp any non-dairy milk
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder or cocoa powder
  • 1½ tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp maca powder (omit if drinking before bed, it may keep you awake!)
  1. Using a frother preferably, or blender, froth the soy milk (this will take a couple of minutes while you prep the chocolate).
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, add the 4 tbsp of milk, cocoa powder, syrup, cinnamon and vanilla.
  3. Whisk constantly, until a thick chocolate milk forms (you may see a slight skin form on top). Lastly whisk in the maca powder until fully distributed.
  4. Once the soy milk is frothed, turn the heat off your hot chocolate and pour the frothed milk into the saucepan and whisk lightly until the hot cocoa is a light brown and mixed. Serve!
