Frozen Banana Hot Chocolate

Pin It
What do you do when you're craving hot chocolate, but it's 80-something degrees in the middle of August? Well, you make a frozen version! Obviously.

Brittany at We Heart Vegan became vegan not solely because of her love of animals, but also because she knows the effects some animal products can have on our bodies. So she decided to be proactive about it. I love her passion for vegan cooking and was really inspired by some of her meatless creations!
For the Secret Recipe Club, I chose to make non-vegan version of one of her recipes, mainly because I didn't have the vegan ingredients on hand. Frozen Hot Chocolate is a treat to have in the summertime and satisfies any chocolate craving you might have (which, for me, is on a daily basis). It's ice cold, frothy and the bananas are a sweet surprise. To make this truly vegan, substitute coconut milk for the cow's milk and you're set. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 4 1/2 tbsp. hot chocolate mix
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup 1% milk
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • 1 1/2-2 cups ice
  • Whipped cream or mini marshmallows, for serving (optional)
Put the water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Add hot chocolate mix and stir until combined. Set aside in the refrigerator or freezer to cool completely.

Once hot chocolate mixture is cooled, add to a blender along with the milk, frozen banana and ice. Blend until smooth.
