Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 2-3 servings
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp tahini (sesame paste)
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2½ cups non-dairy milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp sea salt (optional)
  • salted tahini caramel*
  • Whipped coconut cream or other non-dairy whipped cream (optional)**
  1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients along with ½ cup of the non-dairy milk, in a small pot over medium high heat. Once all is dissolved and mixed thoroughly, whisk in the rest of the non-dairy milk, vanilla, and sea salt if desired. (You can taste and adjust sweetness here, but the caramel will sweeten the drink a lot!)
  2. Once heated through, pour into serving mugs. Top with your favorite non-dairy whipped cream and a generous drizzle of salted tahini caramel!
*Salted tahini caramel recipe can be found here!
**To make your own non-dairy whipped cream, simply beat coconut cream that has been chilled for at least 12 hours with an electric mixer. (Coconut cream is the solid part of full-fat coconut milk; it will become easily separable if you chill the coconut milk overnight.) Beat in 2 tbsp or more of your favorite sweetener.
