Keto Hot Chocolate
We live in the Poconos where we get lots of cold weather and traditions for us is snowboarding or playing in the snow and then enjoying a warm cup of hot chocolate. Going low carb I didn’t want to give up my favorite traditions that I do with the kids so I made some changes and came up with a delicious and creamy keto hot chocolate that I can enjoy while the kids enjoy theirs.
Lots of times I make a large batch and the kids enjoy some sugar free hot chocolate with me and don’t even realize that they are having some of mine and not theirs.
The great thing about this keto hot chocolate recipe is that it takes just 5 minutes from start to finish to make and I can make it on the stovetop (my preferred way) or in the microwave.
Can I make this in the microwave?
I prefer making my hot chocolate on the stove but you can make this keto hot chocolate in the microwave also. Just heat the almond milk and the heavy cream in a mug for 90 seconds, then add in the cocoa powder, sweetener and vanilla syrup and mix well.
