Vegan Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate isn't something we drink all that often. I find it never tastes as good as it looks, however this vegan hot chocolate is the exception!

This version uses Almond milk making it a vegan option. Almond milk is really creamy, so its perfect to use as the base for a hot chocolate. Dark chocolate also keeps this hot chocolate vegan and doesn't make it overly sweet. The addition of peppermint leaves makes this hot chocolate extra special, but you can leave it out if mints not your jam.

2 cups (460 ml) Almond Milk,

1/2 cups (115g) Dark Chocolate,
