Hot Chocolate

Prep Time10 mins
Course: Breakfast, Brunch, Snack


  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 1/4 tsp crushed cardamom seeds
  • 3 strands saffron
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 15 grams 70% dark chocolate
  • 1/4 tsp sugar


  • Heat oat milk in a small sauce pan on medium heat with cardamom and saffron for about 2-3 mins then lower heat to medium/low for 5 minutes. I like to use whole cardamom seeds that I have crushed myself using a mortar and pestle.
  • In your desired mug, place 15 grams of finely chopped chocolate. I'm using grams here as chopping chocolate can produce different results if you use a tablespoon or cups. I found that 15 grams was the best amount of chocolate to my taste, but you can add more or less depending on your taste!
  • Once oat milk is heated, strain out cardamom and saffron and pour on melted chocolate.
  • Whisk chocolate and oat milk in your much until chocolate is thoroughly melted
  • Whisk in vanilla, pinch of salt, and sugar
  • Optionally, you can make whipped topping using either whipping cream or coconut cream.
