Creamy coconut milk makes this easy vegan hot chocolate even better than the packaged stuff. Best of all, it’s ready in just 5 minutes!



  • 1 1/2 cups light coconut milk
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate (I’ve made it both ways)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut (for garnish)


  1. To make on the stovetop: Combine all the ingredients, except for the shredded coconut, and cook on medium heat until chocolate pieces are completely melted. Pour into mugs and garnish with shredded coconut.
  2. To make in a high-powered blender: Combine all ingredients, except for the shredded coconut and blend on high until hot and mixture is completely blended. Garnish with shredded coconut.
