The Grizzly Bear: Hot Chocolate with a Bite

Dairy-free Grizzly Bear Hot Chocolate by Unrefined Vegan

Rich and creamy with deep, dark flavor, you get a double dose of heat from a mug of this non-dairy, sugar-free hot cocoa!




Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized saucepan and gently heat. Whisk frequently to incorporate the cacao powder.

When hot, divide between two large mugs.


I use a stevia-sweetened syrup here because I try to avoid refined sugar as much as possible, but of course, feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer.
