When you think keto hot chocolate, do you think of a drink made with rich, creamy, heavy whipping cream? Is your next thought “I can’t have that!”? If so, I have great news for you! This decadent Keto Spiced Hot Chocolate is totally dairy-free (and you’ll never miss it)!

Dairy-Free Keto Spiced Hot Chocolate Recipe

You can even make this decadent hot chocolate for your non-keto family and friends. Simply sweeten with Wildly Organic Coconut Syrup or Coconut Sugar instead of a non-glycemic sweetener such as Wildly Organic Coco Monkey or stevia.

Wildly Organic now offers MCT oil. It’s a perfect way of making keto-friendly hot chocolate! Wildly Organic also carries another ingredient perfect for the keto diet… Raw Cacao Butter!

How To Make Rich, Creamy Keto Hot Chocolate Without Dairy

I’ve combined two powerful superfoods in this easy keto spiced hot chocolate recipe. The result is a rich, creamy hot chocolate. And, it’s every bit as good as its dairy-filled cousin.

1. Wildly Organic Fermented Cacao Powder is high in antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, iron, and fiber. All are essential nutrients for good health, especially on the keto diet. This cacao powder has a deep, rich flavor that knocks regular old cocoa powder out of the park.

2. Wildly Organic Raw Cacao Butter is the base ingredient of chocolate. It’s a wonderfully rich source of healthy saturated fats and several fatty acids. It also gives this keto hot chocolate a smooth, rich texture and chocolaty aroma.

Simply heat these two ingredients with non-dairy milk. Then, all you need to do is add a few more ingredients. The result? A deliciously decadent, dairy-free hot chocolate perfect for your keto goals!

Spice It Up!

I used cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger in this recipe. Cinnamon and chocolate are a classic Mexican chocolate pairing. However, I decided to spice it up a bit more and threw in some festive nutmeg and warming ginger.

Feel free to change the spices however it suits your taste buds.

Want to kick it up another notch? Add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. Hot peppers help boost fat metabolism!

You can also leave the spices out entirely for a simple, dairy-free keto hot chocolate. I love a versatile recipe, don’t you?

This Dairy-Free Keto Spiced Hot Chocolate will undoubtedly become your favorite fall and winter drink this year. Slip into a comfy sweater or hoodie and curl up under a soft, cozy blanket. Sip on this comforting hot chocolate and forget about your cares for a while.
