Starbucks-Like Vegan Hot Chocolate (Carob Version)

It is starting to get cold outside. And, quite obviously, in winter months there is nothing like warm drinks.

Warm tea's and cocoa's seem to the perfect thing to warm up.

Focusing on that cocoa idea...

It's a staple for wintery months for sure, and I am sure Swiss Miss enjoys the spike in sales that naturally occurs in the winter too.

So does Starbucks though... I think I favor Starbucks though. Let's face it, their flavors are amazing.

And that is why I want to show you how to save your money and make your own. I present to you a Starbucks-like vegan hot chocolate. I use carob because it is very nutritious, but you can easily substitute out the carob for cocoa. It works one-to-one.
Here is to your warmth!

1/4 cup distilled water
2 tbsp carob (or cocoa) powder
2 tbsp vegan cane sugar
1 1/2 cup organic original soymilk
1/4 to 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 stick of cinnamon (optional)
Dandies vegan gluten free marshmallows (optional)
Soy whipped topping (optional)

Mix together the water, carob, and sugar in a two cup measuring glass and place in a medium sauce pan on medium-high heat. Stir until it becomes like a syrup. Do not boil.

Add the soy milk and 1 stick of cinnamon now, and continue stir until hot. You do not have to add the cinnamon if you do not want to.

Add the vanilla at the end, and stir.

Serve in one 16 oz. mug or so and serve with either Dandies vegan marshmallows or soy whipped topping.
