Homemade Dairy-Free White Hot Chocolate
I have been extremely elated to see how popular my Best Vegan Hot Chocolate recipe has become with you all. I've seen dozens and dozens of beautiful remakes on social media and 100% stellar reviews. I've had the itch to create a white chocolate version ever since. As shocking as it is to me, lol, there are some people who don't like traditional chocolate. Here is your white hot chocolate.
It's kind of funny to be sharing this when here in Texas, it's been beautiful, sunny and in the 70's. However, I know a large amount of people in other areas who are up to their eyeballs in snow and freezing, so I hope this will warm your bones some and make you feel all cozy.
Make This Homemade White Hot Chocolate With Just 5 Ingredients
This white chocolate is not only incredibly creamy and luscious, it is just 5 ingredients! To make this dairy-free vegan white hot chocolate, you will only need:
- Lite coconut milk (absolute best milk for hot chocolate, creamy and the perfect thickness)
- cocoa butter (gives that classic chocolate taste and makes it super creamy and thick)
- cashew butter (gives an extra depth of flavor and richness, has a natural vanilla flavor)
- maple syrup
- vanilla extract
But before anybody asks, no, there is not a sub for the cocoa butter. Cocoa butter is what makes it actually be chocolate and taste like chocolate, without it, it's just going to be sweet milk. Trust me, it's worth it. The cocoa butter is also what makes it thicken up. My favorite cocoa butter to use, are these discs I order from Amazon. It's SO much easier to work with, rather than chopped from the large blocks.
Now, the vegan white hot chocolate is already delicious on it's own, but to make it coffee-shop worthy, both taste and presentation-wise, adding some mini vegan marshmallows, whipped cream and freshly grated nutmeg just sends it into white chocolate heaven!
