Low Carb Hot Chocolate


(by Dorene)

1/4 Cup heavy whipping cream

1 cup unsweetened almond milk (this only has 2 grams carb per cup- it’s Diamond brand)

3/4 cup water

1-2 tsp oil (can be coconut or EVOO) or melted butter to mix with cocoa powder

1 Tbsb cocoa powder so it’ll mix with the liquid

Sweetener to taste ( we like 20 drops of stevia and 20 drops of Sweet 10)

Dash of sea salt

This is a ton of fat, but my daughter isn’t very hungry upon waking and usually needs a “fat boost” so this is how we start the day. It makes 2 cups, which is a lot and she slowly sips on this throughout the morning.
