January 31st is National Hot Chocolate Day and I realize I rarely drink hot chocolate, although it’s one of my favorite hot beverages. Dairy free hot chocolate at a coffee house is so hard to find, but making it homemade is simple…and only takes about 5 minutes. This Vegan Vanilla Cinnamon Hot Chocolate recipe was inspired by some fresh vanilla beans I had laying around – and my daughters’ obsession with Once Upon A Time (they put cinnamon in their hot chocolate!).

I used almond milk as my dairy-free base, and several squares of the 72% dark chocolate from Trader Joe’s (in the green box). This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Just heat all the ingredients in a saucepan and whisk.

This Vegan Vanilla Cinnamon Hot Chocolate only takes 5 minutes and 6 ingredients. You won't miss the dairy with all the sweet flavors in this cup!

What’s hot cocoa without the whipped cream? I topped mine with several dollops of So Delicious! Coco Whip.

With this recipe, I’ll be sipping hot chocolate more than just on National Hot Chocolate Day!
