My Three Ingredient Instant Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mix takes a family favorite and makes it healthier. With a batch of this on hand, even the kids can make their own sweet treat.
Sugar Free Hot Chocolate Mix – 3 Ingredients, Keto, THM S, Low Carb, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Option
I’ve been wanting to make an instant hot chocolate mix for a very long time. All the ingredients have been staring at me from the pantry. Finally, on a cold January day, I started playing around with the ratios.
If you saw this post on Instagram you would’ve seen me up to my ears in hot chocolate experimentation. I rounded up my little taste testers and took their votes on the best one. This one came out on top.
In the winter my kids love warm beverages. They alternate between hot chocolate and tea most of the time but my 9-year-old has been known to sneak sips of mommy’s coffee.
Feel free to play around with this recipe on your own. I think you could add an extract to the sweetener (peppermint hot chocolate anyone) and then let that dry before adding the rest of the ingredients. The same way you’d make a flavored sugar. It was also very good with powdered coconut milk. If you are dairy free that is an easy substitution.
I’ve found that blending the powder helps it to dissolve better. I recommend taking the time for this extra step. You can double or triple my recipe for sugar free hot chocolate to make a bigger batch.
- Add the sweetener, cocoa, and heavy cream powder or coconut milk powder to a food processor and pulse to combine.
- Mix 2 heaping tablespoons of hot chocolate mix into 10 oz very hot water. Stir to dissolve. Let cool for a few minutes before enjoying!
