Yes, you can even make Keto hot chocolate in the microwave. You can only make one serving at a time, but hey, fewer dishes to wash! You’ll notice that I gave a range of tablespoons of sweetener.

Best Keto Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate - Super Easy To Make And Ready In 1 Minute

Yield: 1
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 1 minute

Are you in search of the BEST healthy hot chocolate? You've come to the right place! This is sweet, chocolatey, velvety, and decadent. It truly is the perfect keto sugar-free hot chocolate recipe for a cold winter day. This quick and easy hot chocolate can be part of a low-carb, keto, diabetic, gluten-free, grain-free, Atkins or Banting diet. There is even a dairy-free option!


  1. First stir together dry ingredients, the cocoa powder, sweetener, and salt (1 pinch - optional) in a large, microwave-safe mug. This helps break up any lumps of cocoa or sweetener, which will help it mix more easily into the milk in the next step (if you are using unsweetened dark chocolate, add it after you add your low carb milk).
  2. Stir in a few tablespoons of almond milk to make a smooth paste, then stir in the remaining almond milk and heavy cream.
  3. Then, microwave for 1 minute. Remove the mug from the microwave, and stir. Microwave for a few seconds longer or until hot. Finally, stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Top with sugar-free whipped cream and a dash of unsweetened cocoa powder, and enjoy!


Tip: This recipe can easily be made dairy-free by substituting the thick coconut milk from a can for the heavy whipping cream. I find that this adds a slight coconut flavor that I find works well with the chocolate - kind of like a Mound bar

The directions instruct us to combine cocoa, sweetener, and salt, but salt is not listed as an ingredient. Please clarify. Thank you!
