Level up your hot chocolate with this rich Miso Salted Oat Milk Hot Chocolate! Ultra creamy, flavourful, and the perfect cozy drink to keep you warm. (Vegan, dairy free & refined sugar free)
I love anything salted. Something about salt added to desserts, especially chocolate just makes everything taste so much more decadent.
So, I had a random thought. Miso salted hot chocolate. Crazy but it’s kinda like soy sauce caramel, it just works. In fact, I’ve been adding miso paste to my hot chocolate for the past 2 weeks now and I’m OBSESSED.
Oh, and you know what else I’m loving right now? Oat milk. I get the hype now, friends. It is the perfect milk for hot chocolate, truly.
Ingredients for oat milk hot chocolate
This healthy salted hot chocolate is made with just 4 basic ingredients:
- Oat milk: for the creamiest hot chocolate. You can also use any milk of your choice.
- Maple Syrup: naturally sweetened! Substitute for your favourite sweetener.
- Cocoa powder: preferably high quality dutch processed.
- Miso paste: I used white miso paste since it’s more mild than red.
- Chocolate: optional, but makes it extra rich and delicious.
How to make creamy oat milk hot chocolate (easiest way)
This recipe is so easy and quick that it’s kinda dangerous. Simply add all the ingredients, except the miso paste to a small sauce pan and heat it up. Once heated, dissolve the miso paste and whisk until combined. Using a whisk is key here to remove any clumps in the cocoa powder and miso paste and to ensure the bottom doesn’t burn. If you do have a miso paste muddler, it’s really handy to quickly get rid of the clumps.
Pour into your favourite mug, top with coconut whip cream or marshmallows… or even ice cream and enjoy!
