Consumers looking for a fall beverage to enjoy this season should test out this homemade pumpkin hazelnut hot chocolate by Heather Christo. The hot drink still offers the popular pumpkin notes coupled with creamy chocolate and a dairy-free base.
This delicious drink begins with a base made from chocolate non-dairy beverage that is ideal for vegans and lactose-intolerant individuals to enjoy. Added to the chocolate non-dairy beverage is canned coconut cream, agave syrup, sweet pumpkin puree, cocoa powder, nutmeg and cinnamon that is melted together over a stove top. Once hot chocolate is ready you can serve it in a mug topped with extra whipped coconut cream and a sprinkle of chocolate and cinnamon to garnish. This an chocolatey twist on the cult classic pumpkin spice latte without the dairy or caffeine.
