Almond Date Hot Chocolate! Yum! Anybody who knows me knows I love a good hot chocolate. Spring, summer, autumn or winter, rich and creamy with oodles of marshmallows, nothing could be better than this delicious hug in a mug!

Now I’m not a cows’ milk drinker, those little bottles of milk at school that always seemed to be warm made me hate drinking milk with a passion.

But I do love plant based milks, although I can’t drink them on their own (still the cows’ milk nightmares!) I’m fine when they are mixed with other ingredients.

This little recipe was a bit of a find; I was playing about with ingredients one day.

Hey presto! I often come across a delight when I think somethings not going to work.

Nobody I’ve served this to has ever questioned what kind of milk I’m using, they just sip and savour!

This recipe serves two people, but be prepared to double or triple the ingredients because it’s a bit addictive!
