Who says you need to put away hot cocoa on Keto? This Keto cocoa mocha is made with heavy cream, espresso, cocoa powder, and Stevia.
Hot Chocolate has been my go to drink for changing up my mood back in the days but on Keto I rarely had any and after drinking bulletproof coffee for almost 2 months I wanted to try something different and much more flavorful.
And What could be more delish than a Creamy Keto Hot Chocolate for a Die Hard Chocolate Lover who also wants to watch out for the daily carb limit.

The Keto Sweetener :
To make this Keto Hot Chocolate sugar-free yet taste like the real deal, I used Stevia as my Keto sweetener and I have been using it from quite a long time and don’t have any regrets doing so.
The reasons I use Stevia is because It is Natural , plant-based and comes in both Liquid and powder form and isn’t very expensive too.
But of course there are still a ton more Keto sweeteners like Swerve and Erythritol, which you can use if you want but I haven’t tried anyone except Stevia and I would recommend using it only if you have it available in the pantry.
