This was really good.  I used raw sugar, rice milk, added a touch of mint, and did it all in my VitaMix. As you can see from the photo above, it was a hit with the kids!!
Thank you


This is so delicious and has gotten many accolades from my non-vegan friends.  It's one of those recipes that really makes 'em think twice!  I find it works better with soy or almond milk, making the drink more thick and rich.  For a single, but generous serving decrease the measurements by a fourth (divide all measurements by a 4).  This drink is more than highly recommended; it's a must!


This recipe was sooo good :) Thanks!
I had some for breakfast, literally minutes ago with my non-vegan boyfriend and we both loved it. Perfect for this increasingly cold Canadian weather we are experiencing!
Thanks again!


It's still cold and snowy in Maine, and this hot cocoa totally hit the spot today when I got home from work =D

I really liked the addition of a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I've never done that before, and now I'm hooked for life!


for a smaller serving but still a great recipe, try the piping hot cocoa one! it makes about a cup worth.
