Nothing says the holidays like a hot cup of coco brimming with marshmallows. But what if you or your kids are lactose intolerant? Or maybe you are on a dairy-free diet? Why should that mean that you lose out on all the hot chocolaty fun?
Why not try putting a little twist on the standard hot chocolate to make it dairy-free but oh-so-delicious too? Skip the milk and go with almond milk instead. It’s a healthy alternative that will help with any dairy-related concerns you and your family might have. (And it’s crazy yummy, so that helps too!)
