Cold weather definitely requires comfort meals and cozy clothes. Let start with a delicious chocolate drink and patiently wait for Christmas. I’m a chocolate fanatic so I love to have a slice of this delicious coconut flour brownies!

It takes at most 5 minutes to prepare this cozy drink.

So, if you are not a coffee fan, but still want to enjoy the benefits of a bulletproof drink, add MCT oil or grass-fed butter. Blend until frothy and devour.

Just think about adding a teaspoon of hazelnut butter – Nutella hot chocolate!

Hot chocolate is a mood booster for me and probably my favorite hot drink. There’s no way to make hot chocolate in the wrong way because it’s so easy and it will impress all the family chocolate fans. You can always adjust the ingredients to suit your taste buds.

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.

I use the powder to thicken smoothies instantly or to make a keto chia pudding faster. You can skip this step and use ground chia seeds to make the drink thick.

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

  1. Gather all the ingredients for the keto hot chocolate and a blender. Remember that safety comes first and use warm milk not hot.
  2. After all the ingredients are well blended, we can proceed to the next step.
  3. Transfer warm chocolate drink to a saucepan and heat up.
  4. I suggest serving the keto hot chocolate with tons of homemade whipped cream on top. For a dairy-free, paleo version, skip this step.

      1. In a large bowl, I add 1/2 cup whipping cream, a few drops liquid sweetener, vanilla extract. Mix on high for 1-2 minutes until soft peaks form. And there you have it, super simple keto whipped cream.
