Things have been heating up for summer this week, so I figured a nice refreshing drink was in order. ;)
It’s made from scratch but super easy. With only four ingredients it’s delicious simplicity in a cup.
If it were up to me I probably wouldn’t even add sugar at all, but I knew the kids would riot. ;)
MINT ICED COCOA
Makes four 1 cup servings.
1/3 c. chocolate chips (we use vegan Enjoy Life brand)
2 TBSP sugar (or other sweetener of choice)
1 cup non-dairy milk (we use coconut Silk brand)
1/4 tsp. of peppermint extract (or up to 1/2 tsp. depending on taste preferences)
Heat on medium in a medium saucepan and stir until melted. Blend in a blender, with immersion blender, or by vigorously whisking until smooth.
Whisk in 3 more cups of dairy free milk.
Of course, if you don’t have food allergies you can always use cow’s milk and regular chocolate chips. It’s all good.
