  • See the Recipe Notes below for more tips, FAQ's and ingredient substitutions.



Milk: Unsweetened almond milk is my go-to, but you could use your favorite keto milk or milk substitute. Also great with coconut milk.
Cocoa Butter: If you don't have cocoa butter, you can substitute coconut oil. Use refined coconut oil if you don't like the taste of coconut. Same quantity.
Sweetener: If you don't need to keep it keto, you can use any sweetener of your choice. Maple syrup, coconut sugar, honey, or even regular sugar. Same quantity, or more to taste.
Chocolate Garnish: I shaved on some Lily's keto dark chocolate bar on top as a garnish.
