If you’ve been missing your daily winter hot beverage, this incredibly creative pretzel frozen chocolate recipe will help you convert a staple winter beverage into a summer-appropriate drink.

How do you enjoy this delicious chocolate frozen beverage creation at home? The base of this drink is made from homemade mocha coconut ice cubes -- rather than frozen water ice cubes -- made from frozen coconut milk and cocoa powder. The mocha coconut cubes are then mixed with chocolate syrup, regular ice cubes and almond milk in a blender to give that creamy chocolate taste. The extra crushed salted pretzels and whip cream toppings add a layer of decadence to your very own cold version of a traditional chocolate hot beverage that's perfect for the summertime. You can easily substitute the almond and coconut milk for dairy versions, or keep this recipe entirely vegan and dairy-free.
