Delicious Vegan Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2013
Holy Grail of Cocoa:  i adore cocoa so much that i drink it year round, cold in the summer.  so when i became vegan i was distraught that every alternative milk i tried tasted terrible with cocoa.  think of it like painting walls with red paint - it seems like a dark color but in fact, it's the sheerest and if you don't use dark primer, it will never look right.  likewise, chocolate seems like an intense flavor but it is easily overwhelmed by anything other than cow's milk, often leaving behind an aftertaste of rope (despite so many recommendations of adding cinnamon/cayenne) or too watery. finally, in desperation, i tried the very last alternative milk on the market, Pacific Brand's non-dairy OAT milk.  cocoa nirvana at last:  it's creamy enough, doesn't compete with the taste of cocoa and leaves no aftertaste.  i sweeten mine with a PINCH of organic stevia (man, that stuff is potent!).  NOW try all those vegan cocoa recipes! if you just adore soy milk or some other variety, add all the cocoa to it that you want.  but if what you want is the pure, unadulterated cocoa that God and Mr. Hershey intended, Oat Milk is your ticket to enjoying a true cup of cocoa sans dairy.
