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


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