This hot chocolate is made using coconut milk which I absolutely love. The flavour just tastes so delicious and creamy but you can also use any time of milk you prefer. Heat the milk in a saucepan until warm, next comes the spices – I use a mix of cinnamon, ginger and a pinch of all spice, then sweeten the mixture using a very small amount of maple syrup. Finally, add a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder.

To finish this healthy gingerbread hot chocolate off and if I’m honest, blow my kids’ minds; I top with homemade vegan whipped coconut cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and my mini gluten free gingerbread cookies! Seriously, how gorgeous does it look?

This is the perfect warm cuppa for a Christmas or winters evening. You can make ahead of time and keep in the fridge to warm up too! So zero pressure, zero stress.
