Recipe type: Drinks

Total time: 
Serves: 3
Rich, creamy and boozy red velvet hot chocolate made with cream cheese and almond milk for an ultra creamy texture combined with white and dark chocolate chips and cake flavored vodka.
  • 3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
  • 2 ounces reduced fat cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate chips
  • ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon red food coloring
  • 3-4 shots cake flavored vodka (depending how strong you want it)
  • whipped cream for topping
  1. Heat almond milk, cream cheese, and white and dark chocolate chips in a medium sauce pan over medium heat whisking constantly until all ingredients are melted and mostly combined. The cream cheese may separate a little bit--the next step will fix this.
  2. Transfer liquid to a blender and blend until frothy and combined. Pour back into sauce pan and over low heat, whisk in vanilla, food coloring and vodka. Serve immediately topped with whipped cream.
*If you'd like, add 1-2 tablespoons buttermilk. This will give you even more of the red velvet flavor, but it is not required if you don't have it on hand.
**A cake vodka whipped cream or a cream cheese whipped cream take this to the next level!
