It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
KIDDING! I’m kidding! Its still 90 degrees here in Kentucky. Ha!
But, that doesn’t mean I can’t start dreaming of cooler weather and practicing recipes for my favorite winter treats!
Some of you may know that I live in Kentucky but many of you may not know that we’re at the very tippy top of the state, right below the Ohio River. We’re basically in the suburbs of Cincinnati, only in the South by the skin of our teeth. (The Ohio River is the Mason Dixon line in case you forgot)
Every Christmas, we have this tradition of crossing the river to see Santa, ice skate on the square, then walking around looking at the Christmas decorations while we warm up with our favorite Graeter’s hot chocolate!
It’s something we look forward to each Christmas but in the last couple of years, my husband and I have skipped the hot cocoa part since we gave up sugar.
But y’all, I’m writing this blog post today because I have made the best keto hot chocolate! Honestly, it rivals Starbucks, Graeter’s, Williams Sonoma…all of the good ones!
It’s no surprise that my favorite plays the main role in this easy keto hot chocolate recipe!
This Really is the Best Keto Hot Chocolate
And here’s why:
- Rich, creamy, sweet drinking chocolate free of additives, sugar, or preservatives
- No sauce pan or whisk required
- Kids love it
- Dairy free option when you omit the heavy cream
Making Your Instant Keto Hot Chocolate
Did you watch the video and see how simple this sugar free instant hot cocoa is?!
You’ll notice that I didn’t whisk this slowly over the stovetop but instead, used my favorite countertop milk frother!
I absolutely love this little frother. It is less than $40 and will froth your cream or steam your milk in a matter of seconds!
This little gadget makes this hot cocoa in an instant, hence the name!
If you don’t have a milk frother, or do not want one, you can certainly make this keto hot cocoa on the stovetop. Just add everything to a sauce pan and whisk continuously on medium low until everything is mixed and hot (about 10 minutes)!

Personalize Your Keto Hot Cocoa
One of my favorite flavor combinations in the entire world is chocolate + raspberry! Have you ever had a raspberry hot chocolate? it’s divine!
If you’re in the mood for a little something extra, add a little of peppermint extract or sugar free raspberry syrup to your keto cocoa! It’ll be better than Starbucks and a heckuva lot cheaper!
