This recipe turns a few simple ingredients into a delicate cold chocolate drink. Iced chocolate is easy to make with all the boosting flavors of a warm chocolate drink in a cold drink. Easy, delicious, and vegan.


  • 46 medium ice cubes
  • 1 cup oat milk
  • 2 tsp unsweetened cacao powder (100% cacao)
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (more or less to personal taste)
  • 1/3 cup boiled water


  • 1 tsp tahini
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom


In a cup (or mug) whisk together any optional ingredients (except for the sweetener) and the cacao and boiling water. Whisk until you have a smooth hot mixture without any clumps. If you still find clumps your water is not hot enough or you should whisk longer.

Fill a large serving glass with ice cubes.  Pour the hot chocolate mixture over the ice cubes. After that, also add the oat milk (or any other plant-based milk to the glass.

Add a liquid syrup sweetener to your iced chocolate and serve immediately with a straw.


This recipe is very forgiving. After serving you can still adjust the sweetness and flavor. Add more warmth with a hint of cinnamon or add more sweetener if the drink is too bitter. Whisk to combine.

You can make this recipe fancy by serving it with a dollop of whipped (coconut) cream or (vanilla) ice cream.
