There’s nothing like a warm cup of hot cocoa on a cold December day in front of the Christmas Tree 🙂 Growing up, my family often gathered around the tree at night and my mom would make us a big pot of hot cocoa to share, so it is definitely a must have tradition for us every year.
This year I thought it would be fun to make a homemade mix to gift to my family + you all as well. Instead of bringing you an average vegan hot cocoa mix, I’m going to share with you a chai spiced one!
This recipe is very simple, and if you don’t want to gift it, you can simply store it in a jar or air tight container to enjoy in your home.
And be sure you purchase vegan marshmallows! Conventional marshmallows are NOT considered to be vegan because marshmallows contain gelatin, which some people may not know is derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones.
And I wanted to address the blotchy appearance of the drinks above. This hot cocoa does not look like that if you follow the recipe, it just happened because we had allowed it to sit out for a long time while photographing for this post. Forgive me! 🙂
