When mornings are getting colder and you need a little boost, there’s nothing better than a hot drink. This low-carb hot chocolate is the best swap to my keto bulletproof latte. I am a chocolate lover so this keto hot chocolate is a delicious alternative. I’ve had many requests for a sugar-free hot chocolate recipe, so time to share my vision of a creamy and dairy-free keto hot chocolate.
Let’s get this straight, regular hot chocolate is not keto because cow milk is a important source of sugar and a lot of traditional recipes also add raw sugar. But if you are asking the question, it must be because you are after a low-carb keto hot chocolate, right? Look no further, this recipe is the perfect keto hot chocolate!
This keto hot chocolate is a very simple recipe made with only 4 ingredients. These are what I use
Pretty simple, hot cocoa as the name tells you, is a light hot beverage made from cocoa powder, sweetener and milk. On the opposite, an hot chocolate is higher in fat, which is great on a keto diet to boost your macros. As it contains chocolate, it gives a creamy rich texture to your drink. In this recipe I am using sugar-free stevia sweetened chocolate. It contains no sugar and a good amount of fat that adds a delicious velvety texture to the drink.
You can of course serve your hot chocolate plain, with no topping. It will be light and delicious. But my advice, for a rich comforting drink, is to add a generous dollop of whipped coconut cream on top of your hot chocolate. I am using canned coconut cream to keep my drink dairy-free. I scoop out the cream from the can, whip the cream in a cold mixing bowl with an electric whisk and sweeten it with stevia drops. You can also use regular whipped cream, provided it’s sugar-free. The must is to add chopped sugar-free dark chocolate on top. Make sure you combine the toppings with the drink to boost the creamy flavor of the drink.
