Vegan Spiced White Hot Chocolate
I just want you guys to know that I SERIOUSLY burnt my tongue in the process of creating this baby - that's how much I care about endosisters getting spiced white hot chocolate. Yup.
Anyway, I'm well into the swing of making endometriosis diet friendly coffee replacements/winter indulgences and this is my latest creation. I was actually just going to make this with cinnamon, but the boy and I were throwing around flavour ideas and thought nutmeg would work as well. Turns out spiced white hot chocolate is a thing in the internet recipe world, but not many of them are vegan and endometriosis diet friendly. This recipe is slightly trickier (only slightly) than the last hot chocolate, because you have to melt the cacao, but it's full of feel good ingredients and is really comforting, so it's worth it!
I hope you enjoy this Spiced White Hot Chocolate as much as I did - once my tongue had recovered!
Vegan Spiced White Hot Chocolate Recipe
(The below ingredients make for one, so just multiply by the number you're making for.)
- One cartoon of Oatly Cream/or 250ml of Foamable Oatly
- 100ml Rude Health Almond milk (for sweetness)
- One/two vanilla pods or 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla powder
- Two cardamon pods slightly crushed or half a teaspoon of cardamon powder - I noticed the powder is quite gritty, so I think pods are best
- 40 grams of cacao butter, I prefer using cacao butter drops as they melt quicker
- Half a teaspoon of nutmeg (you may want to start with less and taste test, depending on how strong you like your nutmeg!)
- Half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- Pour the milk and cream into a blender and add the vanilla and spices (not the cardamon if you're using pods)
- If you're using a block of cacao butter, either break it up with a knife or grate it into a glass bowl (if you're using drops then omit this). Place the glass bowl over a saucepans filled a third of the way with water (the water should not be touching the bowl) and heat slowly, to retain the nutrients.
- Once the cacao butter has melted, quickly add it to the milk and cream mix and blend.
- Pour into a saucepan, add the cardamon pods if necessary and slowly heat, avoiding boiling.
- Serve in your favourite mug, preferably with a good film and a blanket!
