Tips for This Recipe
Use Your Favorite Sweetener
This recipe calls for maple syrup, but you can swap it out for your sweetener of choice: like honey, agave, stevia, or coconut sugar. You can also adjust the amount of sweetener you use (add more for a sweeter version of this drink).
Use Your Favorite Milk
Oat milk is used in this recipe because it’s creamy & sweet, but you can swap it out for your favorite non-dairy (or dairy) milk and your drink will still be tasty.
Avocado hot chocolate is best enjoyed right after making it! It’s not a recipe that keeps well in the fridge or for leftovers. This is mostly because the avocado will turn bitter.
