DIY Keto Instant Hot Chocolate Mix Gift

As I am writing this, my head is already planning for Christmas Gifts for my loved ones. And of course, I had to try and make our Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate Mix into a nicer package as all of the ingredients are dry and will last for a long time.

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

A big plus to this is, that this Instant Mix Gift is fully Keto, Sugar-Free, Healthy, and with only 3 ingredients you for sure have at home. 

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

Don`t you agree? 

Send me your ideas for packaging. I would love that so much. 

3 Ingredients only Sugar-Free Hot Chocolate

As I love to make all of our recipes the easiest possible, this was my goal for this Decadent and Creamy Rich 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.

Cocoa

Cocoa needs to be in as a base of any chocolates or Hot Chocolate Drinks. 

Sugar Substitute

To make this perfect DIY Mix sweet, but still Sugar-Free, I needed to add a bit of sweetener. And as for the last few weeks, I have experienced with Allulose, this is what I have chosen. 

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

Cinnamon 

The 3rd Ingredient can not be anything else as Cinnamon.

I use cinnamon throughout the whole year every single day into 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. It 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 do, is mix them both in a Magic bullet and use it all the time. This gives me a mixture of both and the taste is unbelievable.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUGAR-FREE HOT CHOCOLATE MIX

First Step: Prepare all Ingredients

Prepare all of your ingredients for an easy mix. 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.
