Creamy cinnamon hot chocolate

It is very easy to make healthy hot chocolate with homemade oat milk. Here's a secret to a thick, creamy and delicious hot chocolate.
Course: Beverage
Servings: 2 portions


  • ¼ cup oat flakes
  • 2 cups water
  • 5 soft dates
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 ice cubes
  • 1 pinch of salt


  • Blend the water with the oats and the ice cubes for a maximum of 30 seconds.
  • Strain it through a cheesecloth or vegetable milk bag without crushing it too much so that the excess of "slime" does not come out.
  • Return the milk to the blender along with the dates, cocoa, vanilla, cinnamon and pinch of salt.
  • Blend until smooth and place in a small saucepan to heat and whisk further to froth.
  • Enjoy hot or warm with a dollop of whipped cream and more cinnamon for garnish.
  • Sweetener: Swap the dates for 3 to 4 tablespoons of maple syrup if desired. It will be less thick but it works as well.
