Vegan Hot Chocolate

Does anyone know where you can get a dairy free or vegan hot chocolate. Most places offer milk alternatives but the chocolate powder contains milk so was wondering if anyone had found a dairy free/vegan one. Thanks

The chocolate powder now used by Costa (new recipe 61527) has vegan status… so if you order the hot chocolate made with soya milk and without any toppings (no whipped cream, marshmallows or other sprinkles) then it’s a fully vegan drink. Note however that it’s not guaranteed as free from dairy for allergen purposes because of the risk of cross contamination during preparation.

Cafe Gratitude on Norman Road in St Leonards are a Vegan Cafe so would imagine they would provide Vegan Hot Chocholate.

There are a number of other Vegan/Veg places including Sham City Roasters (in old town), Bullet (in new town) but Hastings is relatively Veg/Vegan freindly (there is a great Vegan resteraunt - Temperence bar (formerly Nicos Kitchen) in St Leonards, a vegan Guest House (Bay Tree) and even a Vegan Brewery (I wasn't aware until recently that most beer is non-Vegan).

Trip advisor has a little search list for vegan freindly places in Hastings but may not be exhaustive/accurate as basically it will filter in any eatery which states they are vegan freindly when they list there business on Trip advisor https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaurants-g1…

Thank you both, I hadn't thought to check Costa as previously checked there and the powder had dairy in but nice to know it's now changed. Thank you both for your suggestions, I will take a little walk and hopefully enjoy a hot chocolate :) x

Sham City Roasters in George street both sell this in Hot format and take away vegan chocolate to make your own
