I can already tell, this frozen hot chocolate will be on regular rotation around here! It’s easy to make, uses ingredients that we almost always have on hand, and most importantly – it’s absolutely delicious!
The trickiest part of the recipe was getting the sweetness just right without any aftertaste. I used a combination of stevia drops and pyure stevia blend. I found the best method was just to add a little at a time and taste after each addition, and that’s what I recommend you do as well. But, don’t worry I listed the amount I used in the recipe to give you an idea! You could also substitute with your preferred low carb sweetener. I think some of the sugar free coffee syrups would be heavenly in this recipe!
Initially I tried to make this with heavy cream, but it was hard to get it creamy enough without adding a TON of cream (and thus a ton of calories). I found half and half to have the best macros and it really amped up the creamy factor to a perfect level. If you are dairy free I would think that you could easily substitute with canned coconut milk and have an equally yummy drink. If you try it let me know how it turns out!
I topped mine with homemade whipped cream, which I make by mixing heavy whipping cream, stevia and vanilla in a shaker cup until it’s thick. You could also use store bought, sugar free whipped cream – but like most things in life, the homemade is WAY better!
Also one last note – if you want to make this even easier. You could omit the sweetener and the cocoa powder. Just sub with 4 scoops of ChocZero hot cocoa mix. This is by far my favorite low carb hot chocolate mix. It comes in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and white chocolate – all of which would work fine in this recipe!
