5 Ingredient Hot Chocolate
Low-carb, Sugar-free, THM:S, Gluten free, Egg free (adding certain brands of protein powder could change this), Peanut free
Serves: 1 serving
  • Unsweetened almond milk (enough to fill a standard coffee mug...maybe 12 oz. or so?)
  • 1-2 T heavy whipping cream
  • Flat T cocoa powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 2-4 doonks THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder (a doonk is 1/32 tsp.)
  • Optional add-ins: protein powder, glucomannan (to thicken), flavorings of choice
  1. I've found that the easiest way to do this is to put a little almond milk, the cream, cocoa, and salt in a coffee mug and whisk it together until smooth. Add more almond milk (sometimes I use some water as well because I'm frugal, but the hot chocolate isn't as creamy) to the top and microwave for about 2 minutes or a little less. You could also heat this over the stove if you have an aversion to microwaves. Whisking the whipping cream gives you a frothy end result. Add the sweetener *after* cooking (the sweetness will dissipate if you add it before-hand). I suggest starting with 2 doonks of THM Pure Stevia Extract Powder, tasting, and increasing until you're satisfied. Don't skimp on the salt: it helps round out the sweetness.
