FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE IN THE WINTER?
Yes! This frozen concoction is so delicious and perfect for the holidays.
Even if you’re not a fan of eggnog, you’re going to love this fantastic combination of flavors.
We start with ground peppermint candy, then add vegan nog, ice, and finally, ground cocoa powder.
Blend it all up until it’s smooth and creamy and start sipping.
WHAT IS FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE?
Classic frozen hot chocolate recipes are made with ice, milk (plant-based in our house), and chocolate.
Sometimes we add cinnamon and even coffee to jazz it up.
It’s such and easy drink to make, all you need to do is put the ingredients in a blender and blend until it’s smooth and creamy.
What could be easier than that?
While we love this simple chocolate drink, we wanted to make it more interesting and holiday friendly, so we swapped out the non-dairy milk for vegan eggnog.
It was a brilliant move, if we do say so ourselves. 😉
HOW DO YOU MAKE VEGAN FROZEN EGGNOG HOT CHOCOLATE?
This recipe is EASY!
Decorating the rim of the glass is a must for this festive drink. It’s super easy and makes it look so pretty.
Finely grind a candy cane or several pieces of peppermint candy in the blender and put the ground candy on a plate.
Melt vegan chocolate chips on a plate.
Dip the rim of the glasses in the melted chocolate and then in the ground peppermint candy.
If you’re in a hurry and want to skip it, then don’t worry about it, just add a piece of candy cane or a peppermint candy to the blender.
Or, you can skip the peppermint altogether if you’re not into it.
Add 2 cups of ice, 4 cups of vegan eggnog and 2 tbsp of cocoa powder to the blender after grinding the candy cane.
There will be some leftover candy in the blender that will give the drink a slight peppermint flavor.
Blend on a high setting until smooth and creamy.
Pour the frozen hot chocolate into the prepared glasses and top with a dollop of coconut whip and leftover melted chocolate.
Sprinkle with ground peppermint for added color.
ADD A SHOT OF VODKA BEFORE BLENDING TO MAKE AN ADULT COCKTAIL.
