Chocolate Oat Milk Tips
For this recipe, you can use store-bought or homemade oat milk. The homemade version is more affordable, but there are more and more store-bought options popping up in stores all the time if you’re looking for a shortcut. If you use the store-bought version, choose the unsweetened variety.
This vegan chocolate oat milk is a bit dark, and not too sweet. For a sweeter version, add a bit more maple syrup to suit your tastes. And cut back on the cocoa powder for a lighter chocolate flavor.
In order to eliminate the chalky texture of the cocoa powder, it’s a good idea to boil it in water along with the pure maple syrup and chocolate chips. This allows the cocoa to fully dissolve.
I use a blender to make this chocolate oat milk recipe, but you could also whisk it by hand if you don’t have a blender.
This recipe yields 4 one-cup servings. You can use the slider in the recipe card to adjust the number of servings if you want a larger or smaller batch, and it will adjust the ingredient list for you.

Chocolate Oat Milk Recipe
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 2 tbs cocoa powder
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tbs vegan chocolate chips
- 4 cups oat milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Dash salt
- In a small pot, boil the water. Then add the cocoa powder and pure maple syrup, and whisk to dissolve the cocoa powder completely. Add the chocolate chips, and stir until melted. Set aside to cool.
- Add the oat milk, vanilla extract, and salt to a blender. Pour the chocolate syrup mixture into the blender, scraping the bottom of the pot if needed to get all the chocolate into the blender. Process for about 10 seconds, or until mixed completely. Taste the chocolate oat milk, and add a bit more pure maple syrup if desired.
- Transfer to 4 glasses and serve. Leftover chocolate oat milk can be stored in the refrigerator.
This recipe costs a total of $1.26 to make using homemade oat milk, or $.32 per serving. If you use store-bought oat milk, this is still an affordable recipe, at $.70 per serving. Either way, everyone will love this vegan drink.
