Ingredients for Keto Hot Chocolate
The secret ingredient that makes this hot chocolate healthy and thick is chia seeds. I usually turn them into a powder using the coffee grinder and store in an airtight container.
Chia seeds are super high in fiber and will keep you full for longer. The Aztec warriors and Mayans used these tiny seeds as a sustainable source of energy and endurance.
For this hot cocoa you will need:
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp chia seeds powder
- 1-2 tbsp keto sweetener (erythritol or xylitol)
- 1/4 cup canned coconut milk or heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- To serve: whipped cream
Make sure to use high-quality unsweetened cocoa powder to bring that chocolate flavor in this keto drink.
How to Make Keto Hot Chocolate
- Gather all the ingredients for the keto hot chocolate and a blender. Remember that safety comes first and use warm milk not hot.
- After all the ingredients are well blended, we can proceed to the next step.
- Transfer warm chocolate drink to a saucepan and heat up.
- I suggest serving the keto hot chocolate with tons of homemade whipped cream on top. For a dairy-free, paleo version, skip this step.
How many carbs are in Sugar-Free hot chocolate?
