Vegan Pink Unicorn Hot Chocolate

Ring in the new year with this pretty warming drink!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of soy or hemp milk (You need a thicker non dairy milk)
  • 100 grams shredded vegan white chocolate
  • 1 cup of froze strawberries
  • 1 tbsp red food coloring
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Vegan whipped cream
  • Pretty sprinkles

Directions:

  1. In a small pot heat up the milk, do not boil. Then add shredded white chocolate and constantly stir on low heat. 
  2. Microwave the strawberries or 2 minutes. You will find that the berries have lost a lot of juice.
  3. Strain the strawberries and the juice into the pot and stir. 
  4. Add the vanilla and the food coloring. Stir until combined. 
  5. Pour the hot chocolate into glasses and decorate with whipped cream and pretty sprinkles (this makes the drink more magical). 
  6. Enjoy and have a safe and happy new year!

Happy New Years babes!! 🎉💖

I’m in the middle of tapping out an email to my dad, deleting and retyping sentences.

On Friday night I’ll cook an abridged Chinese New Year Eve dinner, I write.

Maybe I’ll cook noodles (symbolizing happiness, longevity) or dumplings (symbolizing wealth). I don’t tell him what I’ll do exactly. This is the first time in my adult life, apart from drinking parties organized under the guise of making dumplings for Lunar New Year, that I’ve paid attention to this holiday.

My dad is unbothered by the truncated menu. In his email back to me, he focuses more on the train he’ll take to New York, the one after 3 p.m. when the station offers free parking.

Chinese New Year had always felt to me more like stiff spectacle than warm family tradition, and fleetingly, I feel guilty for hijacking his holiday by moving it from his place to mine. I’d invited him because it was time for a visit and because I didn’t want to make the three-hour trek to his house in Connecticut.

I wonder if, with my laziness, I’ve sped up the generational hand-off of customs that comes when a kid assumes more leadership in a family. Like hosting a Lunar New Year dinner. I also wonder if I’m cheapening a tradition.
