Rich and creamy vanilla bean hot white chocolate. Made with smooth white chocolate, creamy Silk® Cashewmilk and fresh vanilla bean, this 3 ingredient, 5 minute dessert will be your new favorite! Every year it cracks me up how January 1st happens and everyone is like “OMGGGG I’m gonna be so healthy! I’m gonna search Google for every recipe that ever included kale, and I’m totally gonna #eatclean.” Then by February 1st (or, really, even earlier), we’re back to chocolate and rich, sugary Valentine’s Day desserts. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love any excuse to eat chocolate, and I do actually love Valentine’s Day, even though we don’t celebrate it super traditionally. I feel like regardless of it being a total greeting card holiday, it’s nice to have a fun holiday to celebrate everyone you love. Friends, family, significant others, etc. I love love. And I love celebrating. Usually Steve and I keep things low key. Neither of us are crowd people, so instead of trying to get into a trendy restaurant, we usually make a fancy-for-us dinner at home, and call it a night. Super exciting over at my house, let me tell ya. But I do love snuggling up together on the couch with a big ole mug of hot chocolate. Or, in this case, hot white chocolate. The white chocolate and bold vanilla is paired with Silk®’s new irresistibly creamy cashewmilk! Cashews are a softer, smoother nut than almonds, and that translates perfectly into the milk, which is only 25 calories per cup in the Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk (60 calories in the original)! Whaaaaattt? Give me 7 cups. Seriously. I’ve been drinking it plain, eating it with my cereal, and throwing it in my smoothies. It’s so versatile, and I seriously love it so much more than cow’s milk. And I love the heck out of real cheese, so it really is just a taste preference. The whole recipe comes together in about 5 minutes, and it’s so rich and creamy, you’d never guess it comes in at around 200 calories! That is if you can limit yourself to one cup, which is no easy feat, but let’s pretend you’re better at moderation than I am. 😉 I topped things off with a touch of whipped coconut cream, and it was perfection–perfect for enjoying with whomever you’re celebrating with this Valentine’s Day!
- 2 cups Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk
- 2 ounces white chocolate (use vegan white chocolate if applicable)
- seeds from ½ vanilla bean
- whipped coconut cream for topping, optional
- Heat cashewmilk, white chocolate and vanilla bean in a medium sauce pan on medium high heat until white chocolate is melted and milk gets hot, whisking constantly, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately, topped with whipped coconut cream if desired.
Irresistibly smooth, Silk® Unsweetened Cashewmilk is creamier than skim milk but with 1/3 of the calories. You + Cashewmilk = True Love. To celebrate, Silk® will be giving away hundreds of The Perfect Match Gift Sets for you and a friend at PerfectMatch.Silk.com
