Easy Creamy Vegan Mocha
This easy vegan mocha is made with chocolate chips and cocoa powder for an extra creamy, decadent drink.
To make these, simply whip up a small-batch of hot cocoa then froth and pour over your favourite coffee. Top with coconut whip cream and chocolate sauce for a special treat.
For more hot drinks, try my golden milk or vegan bulletproof coffee. This iced matcha is also delicious for a lower-caffeine alternative.Print

For me, the most difficult part of making something like this is ratios. This recipe gets the perfect amount of dark chocolate flavor, a hint of vanilla that is just right and creaminess. I am sure if you used a thicker milk than I did (I used oat milk) it would be even creamier, but I’m not a fan of coconut milk really. For those wondering, I used honey to sweeten this and for me 2 tablespoons was not enough but enough for my hubs. But I like things sweeter. So I added another splash of honey in after all was assembled and stirred and voila. Easy to make, the right measurements and, in the end, tastes delicious. Thanks!
Yummy recipe. I used a triple shot of espresso! And now for the NYT crossword:)
This turned out great! Thank you:)
Thank you so much!!!! This was better than Starbucks.
Well that’s saying something! Haha, glad you enjoyed it! 🙂 thanks for the comment.
I’ve been looking for a really good vegan mocha latte and i came across this and Brittflix’s video on how to make one. Both are sooo good. i personally think this recipe is thinner and silkier but her’s is definitely creamier and rich and I can’t tell which recipe I prefer. Guys you should definitely try them both. Look Brittflix up on youtube and watch her vegan mocha latte video.
Seems very delicious! I can’t wait to try this one.
Thanks for sharing!
