Vegan Gingerbread Hot Cocoa
The best part of Christmas is sitting in our sitting room sipping healthy gingerbread vegan hot chocolate, watching either Home Alone or Elf! Seriously, does it get any better than that?
Yes, you read that correctly vegan hot chocolate, but being Baby Led Feeding this recipe is packed full of only good ingredients. So while you feel you are having something utterly indulgent, you are also being filled up with so much good ingredients. Good for you, good for your little ones and 100% festive.
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.
