Vegan Italian Hot Chocolate

With Dairy Free Dark Chocolate Buttons

Happy Easter from all of us at Nutra Organics! (and with this delicious hot chocolate drink, there's a lot to be happy about). This thick, creamy, real hot chocolate is satisfying, decadent, and surprisingly beneficial.

Soaked cashews cream up nicely, taste amazing and bring a bunch of nutritious benefits to the table. One of the things cashews are most famous for is their high Tryptophan content. Tryptophan is an amazing amino acid and is the precursor to both Serotonin and Melatonin. Serotonin is known and the "happy chemical" and contributes to feelings of wellbeing and happiness. Melatonin is your "sleep hormone" and regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Our dairy-free dark chocolate buttons are 74% cocoa solids, 100% organic, and will 100% satisfy your chocolate cravings. Cocoa is one of the most potent sources of antioxidants and is a good source of Magnesium and Iron. 

As a lighter alternative to this recipe, you can swap out the nut milk for water, but we used nut milk for a richer, creamier taste.

Give it a try and feel good about your chocolate fix this Easter! You deserve it!


3 cups nut milk of your choice

1 tsp vanilla extract


1 cup The Wholefood Pantry Raw Cashews

4 tbsp The Wholefood Pantry 100% Canadian Maple Syrup

1. Soak cashews in a bowl of water for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight) then drain.
