Chocolate Almond Martini

A Decadent Chocolate Almond Martini

Last year, my Uncle Denny was in town and as we sat around the table laughing and telling jokes, he brought over a round of amazing and decadent Chocolate-martinis!! This turned out to be my favorite dessert martini by far! It was super delicious and decadent and after a second round, I still couldn’t get enough of it! After deciding to share it on here, I was looking at the ingredients I noticed that one of them was not vegan-friendly! I was super bummed but was determined to make a vegan-friendly version! After thinking of what to use, I whipped up a homemade sweetened chocolate almond milk and it was the perfect addition! This martini was even better than the original! It resulted in a smooth sweet treat with a boozy kick! This martini is rich, not too chocolatey and is the perfect drink to ‘woo’ someone special!

This drink can be made with store-bought almond milk, but I definitely recommend making this homemade sweetened chocolate almond milk! This drink is super rich and decadent and is naturally sweetened with dates! If you prefer to make it richer, I would add 1/2 teaspoon cacao powder at a time. I hope you all love this drink as much as we do!

Until next time friends, Namaste. ♥
