Blueberry White Hot Chocolate

Blueberry White Hot Chocolate

Blueberry White Hot Chocolate is the perfect way to warm up those chilly winter days – or air-conditioned summer nights! This creamy, indulgent treat blends the sweet-tart flavors of blueberries, honey and vanilla with smooth, rich white chocolate. Make your own whipped cream if you’re feeling fancy, or top with store-bought to enjoy that much faster. Hint: dairy-milk alternatives such as oat or almond milk are equally delicious!

Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 8 tablespoons canned whipped cream

Preparation

Instructions

  1. In a blender, add milk, 2 cups of blueberries, honey, and vanilla and blend until puréed.
  2. Over medium heat, combine blueberry mixture and white chocolate in a saucepan. Heat, stirring frequently, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until white chocolate is melted and the mixture is steaming.
  3. Divide equally between 4 mugs. Garnish each mug with 2 tablespoons of whipped cream and 2 tablespoons fresh blueberries. 

Variations

  • Substitute whole milk for non-dairy alternative, such as oat milk or almond milk, if desired.
