Dr Jockers Comments:
I love hot chocolate drink this often in the winter time. It is low-carb, keto and fat burning and tastes delicious! Try this out this winter and I believe it will be a family favorite.
Combining the nutritional synergy of the medium chain fats in coconut cream with the anti-oxidants in raw cacao and you will give you an incredible energy boost and improve your brain function. If for some reason you are sensitive to almonds, you can do this recipe with only coconut milk and if you are sensitive to coconut, you could do it with just almond milk.
We flavored this recipe with keto maple syrup which is a combination of monk fruit and erythritol and we added some extra stevia. These are all natural sweeteners that do not impact blood sugar. Let us know how you liked this in the comments box below.
