  • Sweet taste and aroma with a dairy-free option

Is hot chocolate keto?

Sadly no, the typical hot chocolate is loaded with sugar. That’s what makes having a keto option great. Simply adding the mix of the right sweeteners you can bring back that same great flavor while keeping it low in sugar and healthy.

How To Make Keto Hot Chocolate

  1. First, get a small sauce pan on low heat. You’ll increase it but you don’t want the chocolate to start boiling from being too hot.
  2. Next, pour unsweetened almond milk, heavy cream or coconut cream in the pan and whisk.
  3. Add in dutch processed cocoa for a rich chocolate flavor along with granulated sweetener, liquid monk fruit and a little coffee. The coffee is optional in this recipe.
  4. Next, raise temperature to medium. Whisk or use a hand mixer which I found to be more efficient and combine all your ingredients well.
  5. Once the keto hot chocolate has gotten smooth and uniform pull from heat before it starts to boil. Chocolate can get too hot and seize.
  6. Lastly, pour in a small mug and top with some sugar free whipped cream.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Do not let the mix boil! I can’t stress this enough. Chocolate isn’t meant to get past a certain temperature. If it does it will seize and you’ll see it begin to separate. Now, in the video you will notice mine did but this is due to doing too many thing while recording. If the chocolate just seizes and doesn’t burn the taste will be the same you’ll just find yourself constantly stirring. But, if it burned! Start over again.
  • Liquid monk fruit is a must. I am adding 2 different sweetness levels. The bottom is barely sweet but using 1/2 teaspoon of monk fruit will make it very sweet as it typically is. Liquid stevia is an option but I recommend you use monk fruit. Chocolate intensifies the aftertaste of stevia so for someone new that won’t be very pleasant.
  • Dutch processed cocoa will give the richest chocolate flavor but you can also use regular cocoa powder as well. If you want to go dairy-free sub the heavy cream out for coconut cream.
