There is a lot of variety in how you choose to make this.  Depending upon which ingredients you have access too and your body tolerates the best you can choose to make this recipe with unsweetened coconut, almond, flax or hemp milk.

If you do well with grass-fed dairy you can use organic grass-fed milk and heavy whipping cream.  However, there are many who have food sensitivities to dairy proteins so we made this recipe using unsweetened almond milk and coconut heavy whipping cream.

Dr Jockers Comments

I love drinking this creamy hot chocolate in the winter time.  It is low-carb, keto and fat burning and tastes delicious!  Try this out and I believe it will be a family favorite.

There are a lot of great health benefits to chocolate as it is rich in polyphenolic antioxidants and it boosts feel-good neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins.  Adding in chocolate with good fats found in coconut, almond or grass-fed dairy helps to promote fat burning and cognition.

  1. Our 12yo daughter has made a keto hot chocolate and we all loved it. I’ll have to show her THIS recipe!

    A couple things though, some folks might want to know when to add the sweetener. It’s not in the directions.
    Also, where do you get the extract? What’s your favorite brand?

    Thanks for the recipe AND for this entire website! Happy new year!

  2. My favorite Hot Chocolate is: 8oz. unsweetened organic almond milk, 2 heaping spoons of cacao powder, 1 scoop collagen, 1 squirt stevia, pinch of cinnamon and pinch of cayene pepper. This is great especially for seniors.

    Merry Christmas

  3. Since I have frequent kidney stones I need to avoid stevia since a single packet has up to 47 mg of oxalates, I use Monk Fruit sweetener since it has no oxalate. The University of Chicago says as little as 30mg of oxalate can germinate a kidney stone.After 16 kidney stones from 2001 to 2017 I have not had one for almost 5 years. I also take 1000mg of magnesium citrate a day.

    1. Plants create oxalates to protect themselves from the aluminum in the soil, air and water. Where ever there are high levels of aluminum in the soil, you’re going to find high levels of oxalates in that food. At this point there are few places on the planet that are not sprayed from HAARP. Herbs like Chanca Pietra are helpful clearing stones in both the kidneys and the gallbladder. There are others. Thank you for this site Dr Jockers!

  4. What brand of cacao do you purchase to avoid higher levels of cadmium?
    What about Earthtone Foods organic cacao powder?
