Sweet Potato Mexican Hot Chocolate Recipe
By Peanut Palate
🔪Prep Time: 10 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
¼ pre-boiled sweet potato
1 cup cashew milk Can substitute another non-dairy milk, but the taste will be different
1 tablespoon cocoa powder dutch-processed preferred
1-2 tablespoon coconut sugars Can substitute a different dry sweetener. Start with 1 tablespoon and add more as desired.
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 drops vanilla extract
1 pinch chili powder
2 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips, melted If using semisweet chocolate chips, final drink will be sweeter than if you use dark chocolate. Adjust sweetness as desired.
1 small cinnamon stick Can substitute with 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1In a high-speed blender, blend together the boiled sweet potato until it is a paste. Take 1 tablespoon of this to use in the next step, and set the rest aside. You can use the remaining sweet potato puree in a smoothie, oats, or somewhere else.
2Blend all ingredients to make it frothier and smooth out any clumps first.
3Add the blended mixture to a saucepan over medium-high heat, along with the sweet potato puree. Whisk these together, and continue to whisk it every 30 seconds until it boils.
4Make sure all ingredients are well combined, and then remove the saucepan from the heat.
5Pour the drink into a mug, then top with vegan whipped cream, if desired. Serve hot.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
