This peppermint drinking chocolate is ultra-rich and creamy, all while being dairy-free and naturally sweetened.

The key to this decadent drink is using unsweetened baking chocolate, rather than cocoa powder, for a thick and luxurious chocolate flavor. Paired with pure peppermint extract and naturally sweetened with mineral-rich maple syrup, this warm treat may still have you wanting to do an Irish jig… but without a hangover the next morning.

A decadent drinking chocolate, naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup and a hint of peppermint flavor.
Ingredients
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon pure peppermint extract
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the almond milk, baking chocolate, maple syrup and peppermint extract. As the chocolate starts to melt, whisk the ingredients well, until the chocolate has completely dissolved, creating a rich chocolate milk.
  2. Once the chocolate has dissolved and the mixture has reached the desired temperature (do not boil), pour into 4 mugs to serve immediately.

 Notes:

  • You can make this drink sugar-free by replacing the maple syrup with stevia, to taste.
  • If you don’t care for almond milk, any other milk will most likely create a similar result.
