Creamy dark hot chocolate recipe


Made with pure dark chocolate, coconut milk, and spices, this is the Holy Grail for low-carb chocolate fiends. Treat yourself to a (guilt-free!) cup the next time a craving strikes. (Make this nut- and dairy-free by using coconut milk and water for the first two ingredients.)

  • Yield: 1 Serving


  • ½ cup (120 ml/4 fl oz) coconut milk or heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup (120 ml/4 fl oz) water or almond milk
  • 2 cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar-free vanilla extract or 1/8 teaspoon vanilla powder
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons (20 g 0.7 ounce) granulated erythritol or Swerve
  • 1 ounce (28 g) unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml/0.5 fl oz) MCT oil or coconut oil
  • Few drops liquid stevia, to taste (optional)
How to Make It
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the coconut milk, water, cardamom, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and erythritol. Bring to a boil. When bubbles form on top, remove the mixture from the heat and let it sit for 5 minutes. Add the unsweetened chocolate and MCT oil and let it melt while stirring. If you want a sweeter taste, add the stevia and stir again.
  2. Pour the chocolate mixture through a sieve into a blender and pulse for a few seconds until smooth and frothy. Serve hot!
