Want a dairy free hot chocolate? Swap out the dairy ingredients for non dairy options. You can use coconut milk or almond milk, coconut whipped cream, coconut evaporated milk and vegan dark chocolate instead. Don't like whipped cream? Opt for some toasted marshmallows or simply omit the whipped cream altogether. Don't have access to chocolate from Dominican Republic? You can opt for very dark chocolate instead, organic cacao. Like your cup of hot chocolate on the sweeter side? Add additional sugar or sweetener of choice to taste.
