By Rachel Smith (

Serves 1 | Prep 2 mins | Cook 5 mins 


  • 250 ml (1 cup) of oat milk (I used Oatly Barista)
  • 1 large Tbsp of raw cacao powder
  • 1-2 tsp of coconut sugar (adjust to your taste if you like it sweeter)
  • (Optional) A dash of vanilla bean extract
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Optional toppings:

  • Food Heaven Heavenly Vegan Whipped Spray Cream
  • Coconut Syrup
  • Raw chocolate shavings


  1. Heat the oat milk, cacao, vanilla and cinnamon on a low-medium heat, and stir until the cacao is well combined, and the mixture is warm, but not boiling hot.
  2. Keep stirring the mixture, and add the coconut sugar. Heat for a further 1-2 minutes.
  3. Top with vegan whipped soy cream, or a spoonful of whipped coconut cream, coconut syrup and some raw chocolate shavings for a truly decadent drink.
