❤️ WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT

Hot chocolate and cold weather go hand in hand, especially on cold winter days. During the Christmas season, there’s nothing like relaxing on the couch in front of the fireplace with a steaming cup of creamy keto hot chocolate.

If you’ve been looking for an easy recipe for keto-friendly hot chocolate on a cold day, you’re in luck. I love that it also helps with my chocolate cravings.

You can buy hot chocolate mix at the grocery store, but if you’re on a low-carb diet, it may contain a lot of sugar and corn syrup. Making your own low-carb cup of hot chocolate keeps the chocolate in place and doesn’t spike your blood sugar.

🧾Ingredients used

This hot chocolate drink requires only a few ingredients.

  • unsweetened cocoa powder: You can get good chocolate flavor without adding any sugar.You can use whatever brand you like, but I prefer to use viva cacao powder For the deep flavor of chocolate. Some brands are more bitter than others, so make sure you use a high quality cocoa he powder.
  • unsweetened almond milk: This forms the liquid base for this recipe. You can also use coconut milk.
  • Thick whipped cream: The combination of heavy cream and almond milk makes this drink very rich and creamy.
  • monk fruit sweetener: I like to use monk fruit sweetener as a sugar substitute. Instead, you can use your favorite sweetener such as swerve, stevia, truvia, or allulose.
  • salt: It is a secret ingredient that softens the bitterness of cocoa powder.
  • vanilla extract: For an extra dose of flavor!
  • Whipped cream: I like to top this keto hot chocolate with sugar-free whipped cream, which tastes just like the real thing, but this is completely optional.
