Hot Cocoa

Serves: 3
Time: 10 min
Work Time: 5 min



  1. Put sugar, cocoa powder, and salt into a medium saucepan.
  2. Add the water, whisk together, then heat on medium until boiling.
  3. Boil for 2 minutes, stirring nonstop. If you stop stuff will burn onto the saucepan!
  4. Add the 4 cups of oat milk, then keep heating until hot (but not boiling). Stir regularly throughout.
  5. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla.
  6. Whisk until foamy, if you like a lighter hot chocolate.


Divide into mugs; you can pour right out of the saucepan if you're careful, otherwise use a ladle. Whipped cream on top or a dusting of cocoa powder is a nice visual touch. Let it cool a bit before drinking it.
