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.
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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.
Notes
*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!
