My favorite dairy free peppermint hot chocolate! Easy, creamy, and soo delicious!

Lower in sugar that your average cup of cocoa, this healthier dairy free spin on hot chocolate totally hits the spot. The peppermint extract gives it that extra flavor so that you can make it with less sugar. It is SO good! I love topping it with some almond or coconut whipped cream.

Are you team marshmallow or whipped cream? Either way, you’re going to love this vegan hot chocolate 🙂

Enjoy and stay warm! xo
