Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This dairy free peppermint hot chocolate is so creamy and decadent. It is the perfect warm and comforting drink for a chilly winter evening. So put on some Christmas music and settle in by the fire to enjoy this perfect dairy free treat. 

Dairy Free Peppermint Hot Chocolate

This peppermint hot chocolate comes together on the stove top in no time at all. It is so easy, but so rich and flavorful. For the base of the drink, I use a combination of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and coconut milk. I love the richness that the coconut milk brings and the almond milk helps balance out the flavor.

The rich chocolate flavor comes from both unsweetened cocoa powder and dairy free chocolate. It brings just the right amount of chocolatey goodness. The addition of actual chocolate chips/chunks also makes it thick and insanely decadent, like a cross between a drink and a dessert.

This would not be peppermint hot chocolate without the peppermint! Nutpods has quickly become my absolute favorite creamer to use in my coffee, but it also adds the perfect flavor in this hot chocolate. A splash of the Peppermint Mocha and some peppermint extract and you have the ultimate holiday drink!

I topped my hot chocolate with coconut whipped cream which can be found in most grocery stores now. You could also use a milk frother to froth the Peppermint Mocha Nutpods for a delicious topping.
