Keto Hot Chocolate Recipe (2g Carbs)

4.9 from 15 votes

What makes this keto hot chocolate recipe so special is its unique energy-providing ingredients. We decided to tweak our delicious hot chocolate recipe by giving it an added kick with some (optional) MCTs for extra energy, making it like a bulletproof hot chocolate.

Delicious and creamy keto hot chocolate recipe with MCT’s optional.

We changed the ingredients slightly and added MCT powder for those wanting a little kick early or midway through the day, but you can leave the MCTs out if you want a nightcap before bed.

We’ve used unsweetened Macadamia Milk for this keto hot chocolate recipe. It has a mild flavor, and it’s so creamy! You can swap it out for your preferred low-carb milk (almond, etc.).

Keto Hot Chocolate Ingredients

  • 3 cups of unsweetened Macadamia Milk
  • 1 cup of Heavy Cream
  • 1 x 3.5-ounce block of Lindt 90% Cocoa, broken up
  • ⅓ cup of Swerve
  • 2 scoops MCT powder (leave it out before bed as it may keep you awake)
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Essence

This Keto hot chocolate recipe makes 4 servings. 1 serving is 1 cup.

How to Make Keto Hot Chocolate

  1. Place all the ingredients into a medium-sized saucepan. Stir gently.
  2. Cook on low for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 min to prevent the chocolate from sticking to the edges of the saucepan.
  3. After cooking, stir well before pouring into glasses and serving.
  4. Optional: Top with keto whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
