We’ve put up our Christmas tree. Our house is decorated with lights. We hung up our stockings, including our newest one for baby Ryan this year. It’s really feeling like Christmas.
Which has me craving hot chocolate, coziness, and holiday movies. And not just any hot chocolate. My beyond delicious, healthy keto hot chocolate.
Keto Hot Chocolate Secret Ingredient
This hot chocolate is made with a very essential, secret ingredient that I didn’t find in other keto hot cocoas. Cocoa butter!
The cocoa butter adds a richness and silkiness that takes this hot chocolate over the top. Cocoa butter is the fat that is pressed out of the cocoa bean. It tastes like chocolate, even though it has no sweetness. (If you don’t have cocoa butter see notes of a good substitution.)
How to Make Keto Hot Chocolate
But use what you have. You can substitute any non dairy milk of your choosing. Canned coconut milk is delicious too!
The resulting keto hot chocolate is rich, decadent, velvety, and everything you want in a hot chocolate. It’s almost like a sipping chocolate. Top it with some coconut whipped cream and you have the perfect warm treat for cold winter nights around the Christmas tree.
Enjoy it guilt free since it is so healthy!
