Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix

 I decided to try making my own Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix one morning when I reached into the cupboard and discovered that I was out of those cute little sugar-free packets of hot chocolate.

This Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix is just 3.7 total carbs per serving. Super easy to make with just 3 ingredients. Absolutely delicious and great for Bulletproof hot chocolate. #bakingoutsidethebox #lowcarbhotchocolatemix #lowcarbrecipes

 I was astounded by how easy it was.  Just 3 ingredients: cocoa, sweetener, and powdered cream.

Powdered Cream?  Yes! This stuff is my new low carb hero.  I'd purchased a jar of it from Amazon to experiment and decided to try it in my Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix Concoction.

Powdered cream is interesting.  It doesn't whip up, but is good for a lot of things you could put liquid cream in and the brand I bought tastes good.  (See it here.)

(I'll admit here that I actually bought the powdered cream to make something else wonderful and promise to post it soon!)

You are probably wondering which sweetener I used.  I used Splenda for this batch.  I actually think any zero calorie, pour-able, cup-for-cup sweetener that would dissolve in hot water will work.  You choose.

I did have to stir it just a bit longer than commercial hot chocolate mix. After I stir thoroughly it remains as well suspended in the liquid as any other mix.

  I didn't mind the extra stirring  though, because I think this luscious stuff tastes so much better than those little packets. I especially like knowing exactly what's in it.  

Best of all It has only 3.7 carbs per serving total! (net carbs are 2.5. Crazy low, right?) 

I was super shocked when I looked at the back of the empty sugar-free hot chocolate box from the store and discovered it had 11 carbs per packet and no fat to speak of.  Arrg.  How did I miss that when I bought it?

Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix in the morning is my plan for how I'm getting through the holiday season this year.  And yes, I'm putting a little something extra in it: cream. Or butter. Or coconut oil. OH YUM!

Yup, I bulletproof my Low Carb Hot Chocolate Mix by adding a little fat.  After the holidays are over, I think that drinking this every morning might be a really hard habit to break, though I'm not sure why I would.

It's delicious and I feel good and have energy until lunch.  Then I eat as I normally would and just close the kitchen at 8 pm.  I've already lost three pounds and I don't feel guilty for the occasional holiday party-cheat. So far it has made my holidays more enjoyable and less stressful. Maybe it well help you too and that's always my hope when I share my recipes with you. -Enjoy! Laura

    Is there an alternative to the heavy cream powder?

    • Ok, this is only a guess, but maybe coconut milk powder. I just bought a bag and I haven’t tried it yet for taste and texture. It has one more carb per tablespoon than the cream powder.

  2. Thanks for this post, I had not heard of powdered heavy cream before but what a great idea!
    I can’t wait to get some and try this recipe. I will definitely try the powdered cream in coffee too!

  3. Hi there! Thanks for sharing. I think it is so important that we share that life without sugar is not only possible but enjoyable! Seeing your recipe makes me think of how I travel on KETO. I use a powdered MCT to make a version of bulletproof coffee. It acts like a cream as well. You can find it on Amazon also. I thought I would share.
