The Best Vegan Chocolate with Vegan Marshmallows


  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped raw cacao paste or dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • a handful of vegan marshmallows


  1. In a small pot, bring the milk and the water almost to a boil. 
  2. Take the pot off the heat and add the rest of the ingredients (except for the marshmallows) 
  3. Stir until the chocolate melts.
  4. Turn the heat back on and bring the hot chocolate to a boil.
  5. Let simmer for 1-2 mins and take off the heat.
  6. Optional: Using a small handheld milk frother, froth the hot chocolate according to package instructions.
  7. Pour into a mug, top with the marshmallows and dust with more cacao or cinnamon.
  8. Enjoy immediately.


I'm using a milk frother here to get nice creamy foam on top. I have a tiny one that was less than $10 and it's my favorite thing to use. You don't have to do it if you don't have one, the chocolate is just as tasty when not frothed.
