Homemade Vegan Hot Chocolate

20180120_111323I love drinking hot chocolate when it’s snowing outside! Especially with fresh popcorn.

This recipe makes 1-2 mugs of hot chocolate. Feel free to double it if you need more!

Here’s what you need to make it:

  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 cup of Almond/Soy/Cow’s milk
  • 3 tablespoons of Hershey’s cocoa
  • 5 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 dash of vanilla

To start off, put a pot on the stove with three cups of water and the three tablespoons of Hershey’s cocoa on medium heat. Whisk the water and the cocoa until all the cocoa chunks are dissolved in the water.

Gradually add the sugar and continue to whisk the ingredients. Add a dash of vanilla.

After all the sugar is dissolved, then add the almond/soy/cow’s milk to the pan. Continue to stir the ingredients while the almond/soy/cow’s milk gets warm.

Pour in a mug and enjoy!

Baked Breakfast Bites

It honestly blew my mind how yummy these were!

Breakfast Bites

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Here’s what you need to make it:

  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream

Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl. Make sure that you whip it really well so there’s air in the whipping cream. This will help the mixer rise and stay together when it bakes.

Pour the mixture into mini-muffin tins (spray the tins with oil first).

Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees and enjoy!

Homemade Pesto Sauce

This is seriously so yummy! It does take a lot of time to make it though.

Pesto FINAL

Here’s what you need to make it:

  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  • 1/2 crushed walnuts
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • 1 dash of lime juice
