DIY keto instant hot chocolate mix gift

As I am writing this, my head is already planning for Christmas gifts for my loved ones as I love this recipe so much. I so love that this is a sugar free easy mix and super easy recipe to make hot keto drink.

And of course, I had to try and make our keto friendly hot chocolate into a nicer package as all of the ingredients are dry and will last for a long time.

To my surprise, I could not believe how beautiful this glass tube looked. Now I know what to make for all of my friends and family. 

This instant mix gift is fully keto, sugar-free, healthy, and with only 3 ingredients you for sure have at home. 

Easy sugar free hot chocolate dry mix is so rich and creamy, that you will be sharing your recipe with all of your friends.

I have also added our marshmallows towards the end, but that is entirely up to you.

3 ingredients only sugar free hot chocolate mix recipe

As I love to make all of our recipes the easiest possible, this was my goal for this decadent and creamy rich sugar-free hot chocolate.

I wanted to make something special, but still easy and with the least ingredients possible. 

And therefore I have chosen the simplest way possible.

Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate
Low Carb Hot Chocolate gift

Raw cacao powder or cocoa

Unsweetened cocoa powder or raw cacao powder needs to be in as a base of any chocolates or hot chocolate drinks. 

Sugar sweetener

To make this keto hot chocolate recipe sweet, but still sugar-free, you need to add a bit of sugar alternative. And as for the last few weeks, I have experienced with Allulose, which tastes exactly like sugar, this is what I have chosen. 

Allulose sweetener gives this drink super sweetness with additional creaminess as well as softness.

You can also add a dash of stevia, but remember, that it will be twice as sweet as sugar.

Cinnamon 

The third ingredient can not be anything else as cinnamon.

I use cinnamon throughout the whole year every single day in my coffee. 

It not only tastes wonderful and makes my morning coffee like Holiday every single day, but gives us lots of health benefits as well.

Cinnamon garden

I have at home a big pack of Ceylon cinnamon directly from Sri Lanka, which has been gifted to me by one of my dear friends when we lived in the Middle East. 

Her father has got a garden full of True Cinnamon Trees and collects and dries them for all.

What a garden that must be. Awesome.

I also have Indonesian cinnamon in another pack and each one of those is different in color as well as taste and sweetness.

What I usually do is blend them both in a Magic bullet and use it all the time. This gives me a mixture of both and the taste is unbelievable. 

Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps keep our blood sugar at a perfect level and can help with decreasing stomach acid.

What types of cinnamon there are?

There are various types of cinnamon, some sweeter, some not, but the most popular are:

  • Cassia, which is also known as Chinese cinnamon
  • Burmannii, cinnamon from Indonesia
  • Saigon, also known as Vietnamese cinnamon
  • Ceylon or Sri Lankan cinnamon
  • Citriodorum, which is a Malabar cinnamon

Dairy free milk powder

An additional ingredient to this sugar free hot cocoa pre-made mix could also be a heavy cream powder or if you find a dairy free powder from one of the nut milks.

In that way, you can make your own hot chocolate using only a few ounces of hot water.

How many carbs are in keto sugar free hot chocolate?

You might wonder. Is sugar-free chocolate keto friendly or diabetic friendly?
This easy sugar-free hot cocoa mix makes 4 portions, which is a tablespoon for one cup of hot cocoa.
One Tablespoon of this dairy free chocolate powder will get you 2 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of Fiber. Total net carbs will be 1 gram for a cup of hot chocolate.

Our hot chocolate does not raise blood sugar at all and is a perfect addition to keto diet.

And exactly those types of sugar-free drinks are perfect for diabetics.

What milk to use for homemade keto hot chocolate mix?

As a keto milk alternatives or substitute, various nut milk varieties can be used as it depends on your taste.

You can make all of those at home in a few easy steps. Just pick nuts or seeds, soak them and blend with water in a blender. Let it run through a mesh strainer with muslin cheesecloth and there you have a perfect milk substitute. 

The most popular and favorite in our lifestyle are:

Additionally to those you can also experiment with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, linseeds, sesame seeds, or hazelnuts.

What can you add to a low carb hot chocolate mix?

You can enhance the flavor as well as health advantages with

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUGAR-FREE HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE

First step: Prepare all ingredients

Prepare all of your ingredients for an easy blend. It is best to get the freshest ingredients you can. 

There is also a big difference in cinnamon you might be using, as you see me mentioning above. 

If you do have cinnamon, which is pretty sweet to the taste, use a bit less sugar substitute in the mix.

Second step: Add and mix

In a mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients together and with a small whisk, mix them all until all of the ingredients mix fully, breaking all of the clumps you might have.

From this recipe, you will get a mixture of approximately 4 servings. 

Place the rest of the mixture into a glass bottle or air-tight container and keep it in your Pantry for later.
