This is the hot chocolate that I make. It deals with chocolate cravings and it’s lush 😋

Half a mug of alpro chocolate milk which you heat up a bit. Then add half a teaspoon of cocoa powder and mix well - I use one of those quirly things. Top up with whatever none dairy milk you usually use then heat until hot enough.

The cocoa powder adds flavour and takes some of the sweetness away (if you’re not too keen on a lot of sweetness).

Sounds good. I also like Rude Health almond milk (it's sweetened with rice, but no refined sugar) heated up and mixed with cacao powder (they do a nice cheap one at ALDI). Tastes yum and makes me feel so virtuous....

Yes I like the Rude Health milks . If you feel like spending a bit. buy one of those milk frother machines, ours is fab. it's Lavazza Amodo Mio and it works best with NON DAIRY milks!!

Even dh is impressed it makes lovely cappuccinos too.

Rude health publically insulted vegans and promote dairy so I don't buy from them.
I do love either warmed chocolate Oatley
Or cashew milk and sweet freedom choc shot.
Both delicious! Especially when you add vegan squirty cream and marshmellows! grin

I also won't buy Rude Health anymore.

That sounds good! I've never actually tried the alpro chocolate milk heated up, but bloody love it cold so don't know why.

Some of the Whittards hot chocolate powders are vegan & they're amazing!

What have Rude health said? I like their milks sad

My favourite hot chocolate is almond milk, cacao powder, peanut butter, maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Heat it up, then whizz it up so it's nice a frothy. It's delicious

First one is their twitter. Second is their website.
Love Oatley.

Talk about offending your target buyers! I love oatly too, particularly the barista milk (which is bloomin hard to find!) It's so creamy in coffee though

Exactly rude by name rude by nature!!
Yes it is hard to get hold of at the moment, I messaged them and they said it is due to high demand and they are currently expanding their facilities. So good news really but annoying in the short term!
