Most people don’t know, but the Mexican hot chocolate that you can buy at the store that looks like this …



… is vegan. All you gotta do is substitute non-dairy milk in the direction.

But if you want to do it the O.G. (stands for my Original Grandma) way, you can just follow my recipe. It’s a little more work, but the wonderful explosion of deliciousness in your mouth will be worth it!


  • 3 1/4 cups almond milk
  • 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of cayenne pepper


Step 1

Over medium heat, add all ingredients to a saucepan and slowly mix until the chocolate melts.

Step 2
