  • 2 tsp. cornstarch (optional)*.

  • 40g of dark chocolate

  • 1 tsp. peppermint matcha

  • 1 pinch of salt

INSTRUCTIONS 

For the Matcha & Peppermint Hot Chocolate

  1. In a saucepan, dissolve cornstarch in cold milk. Add chocolate and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 

  2. When mixture thickens slightly, remove from heat. Add matcha and salt and mix. 

  3. Pour into two small cups and garnish with whipped coconut cream, crumbled candy cane and mini marshmallows for a gourmet version.

 

*Note:

  • Cornstarch is optional, but it makes a smooth and decadent hot chocolate. If you decide to omit it, there is no need to bring the mixture to a boil. Simply melt the chocolate in the hot milk, then add the matcha and a pinch of salt.

  • Want a slightly less rich version of this hot chocolate? Replace the whipped coconut cream with cappuccino-style frothed plant-based milk!

  • Don't like mint? No problem! You can make the recipe with our Chai Matcha for a spicy hot chocolate. You can even add a pinch of cayenne pepper for an extra kick!
