Raw Vegan Hot Chocolate
Cook time
Total time
Cuisine: raw food, raw vegan, gluten-free
Serves: 2-3
  1. Add the almond milk, cacao powder, carob powder (you can skip it if you don't have it), maple syrup, coconut oil, and salt into a blender and blend.
  2. Pour the hot chocolate mixture into a sauce pan or a small pot. Warm it on the lowest flame until the temperature rises to about 110°F (42°C), while stirring constantly to avoid hot spots. Check the temperature with a cooking thermometer often to ensure it doesn't go over 118°F (48°C), making it no longer "raw".
  3. Once the hot chocolate hits the temperature, remove from the flame. Top it with some coconut whipped cream or raw vegan coconut whipped cream, and sprinkle some shaved raw chocolate or cacao powder on top. Serve immediately.
