    LoveRiot: Yes, almond milk would work perfectly in this recipe, as would any non-dairy milk. And, bonus, you can make yours easily. There's plenty of good recipes for easy homemade almond or rice milk (adding cashews makes it extra-creamy!)

    Based on 1 qt of soy milk, a serving is 8 oz, pretty scant in my opinion!

    Salt brings out the sweetness of the chocolate and helps balance the flavors of the warm drink.
