If you’ve ever been to Spain and enjoyed churros dunked in melted chocolate, then this hot chocolate recipe will taste familiar, though it’s a much healthier experience! It’s hard to believe there’s no cream in this silky smooth drink and it’s all down to the almond and coconut milk.
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency and the dates have blended. Add more water if required to thin the mix slightly if you would like a thinner consistency (I like my hot chocolate quite thick).
Warm gently in a saucepan until heated through, stirring occasionally to prevent any clumping.
Pour into mugs, top with mini marshmallows and enjoy!
