Hot Cocoa

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by mielhollinger

Hot cocoa made with plant milk (soy, rice, nut, or grain) is rich, smooth, and satifying. Everyone knows hot cocoa is wonderful in cool weather, but this recipe is so simple and delicious it may become a year-round favorite.

My kids love soy milk. And homemade hot cocoa! I've never even thought of making it with soy but will definitely do it from now on. Not nearly as salty as the cow's milk variety and very silky tasting. Thanks for sharing this one!
