by Sophie

Hot chocolate is every chocolate lover’s dream and this cold weather certainly calls for some. Tis’ the season of love, happiness, positivity and chocolate! Hence, presenting my version of Vegan Keto Chai hot chocolate.

Evidently, it’s chai spiced, low in carb and is vegan, which means it beautifully fits into my diet and lifestyle now. Whether or not you are vegan or keto, you will love this healthy yet yum version for sure.

Almond milk is my favorite non-dairy milk, but feel free to use soy, coconut, rice or anything that best suits your lifestyle and palate. Chai spice gives the hot chocolate a new bold dimension and adds a depth in flavor that lingers on your palate with each sip of this hot chocolate. However, you can replace it with gingerbread spice, pumpkin spice or simply cinnamon for a newer version of this vegan keto chai spiced hot chocolate recipe. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do.
