Oat Milk Hot Chocolate

Kathleen Higashiyama
Oat Milk Hot Chocolate is a creamy vegan chocolate drink. The chocolate and cocoa powder provide the rich chocolatey flavor while the oat milk makes it creamy and smooth. It also only takes a few minutes to make and as a result, has become our go to dessert this holiday season.
