This keto hot chocolate is a tasty and satisfying keto treat for cold winter nights. It's infused with cinnamon, star anise and ginger for the ultimate festive twist. We've got almond milk infused with warming spices combined with whipping cream, sweetener and unsweetened chocolate. This is the perfect treat for Christmas!

Hot Chocolate Toppings and Add-ins

You can keep this keto hot chocolate plain or add any of these add-ins and toppings:

  • whipped cream topping
  • sugar-free marshmallows (you can even make your own marshmallows)
  • grated dark chocolate, cacao powder or cinnamon for dusting
  • For extra protein add 1-2 scoops Perfect Keto Collagen or your preferred collagen powder
  • For extra creaminess add roasted almond butter or Perfect Keto Nut Butter. I prefer roasted as it enhances the flavour. Instead of unsweetened chocolate, you can use 85% dark chocolate or 90% dark chocolate and skip the sweetener.

Want to add toppings and add-ins and see how they affect this recipe? You can make any adjustments directly in the KetoDiet App by cloning any of the recipes from my blog and customizing them to fit your macros and preferences.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
