Homemade keto chocolate milk is SO easy to make and is ridiculously delicious, way better than that high carb store-bought stuff!
All you need is a glass of milk and a few mix in’s and you’ll be slurping up this nostalgic drink in no time! It’s one of those low carb desserts you can enjoy after dinner, in iced coffee, or even mixed into your favorite low carb cocktails.

What I Love About This Keto Chocolate Milk Recipe
Well, first off, it’s sippable low carb chocolate! And then…
- It’s effortless. Literally toss everything into the blender and let your favorite kitchen accessory do the work.
- Tastes amazing in everything!
- No carbs, sugar, or preservatives here. Just the good stuff.
As I mentioned, there’s not much to this keto chocolate milk recipe! Here’s what you should know before diving in:
Milk – There are a whole lotta carbs in cow’s milk (due to milk’s naturally occurring sugars called lactose) so opt for whatever keto milk you prefer, such as coconut milk or almond milk.
You can add a touch of heavy cream or full-fat coconut milk, but using only these would make your keto chocolate milk SUPER rich drink and (in my opinion) hard to drink.

Cocoa powder – I much prefer dutch process cocoa powder as it’s got a smoother, more mellow and less acidic taste.
Sweetener – I switch between 2 keto sweeteners: allulose and erythritol. For cold recipes (recipes that aren’t being baked, such as frosting, ice cream, and drinks), I much prefer allulose, as erythritol has a tendency to recrystallize and create a gritty texture.
Opt for allulose for the best texture results, but erythritol will do if you don’t mind!
Tools To Make
Just a blender! Cocoa powder is hard to incorporate with liquids, and using a blender is the best tool for the job. If you don’t have a blender, I suggest heating the milk and cocoa powder over the stovetop, and whisking until they’re well incorporated.
This keto chocolate milk tastes delicious added to all sorts of drinks (like keto smoothies), and cocktails (like this keto martini), but it’s also great on its own, with a drizzle of sugar free chocolate syrup and keto chocolate chip cookies dipped in it!
There are so many ways to get creative with chocolate milk, including:
- Swap cocoa powder with strawberry powder for strawberry milk. Sub in any keto fruits you prefer instead of strawberry powder.
- Add some spices, such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or even pumpkin pie spice (which would go great in my sugar free pumpkin spice latte!)
- Turn this into a keto protein shake with a scoop of keto protein powder. If your protein powder is sweetened, be sure to skip the sweetener, and if it’s chocolate, skip the cocoa powder.
- Make chocolate milk ice cubes by freezing an ice cube tray full of this keto chocolate milk. These are great when added to ice coffee.
- Turn this into a low carb milkshake by blending the frozen chocolate milk ice cubes and topping it with keto whipped cream.

Fans Also Made These Low Carb Recipes:
- Chocolate. I love Lily's chocolate chips for this (they make dark, semi-sweet, and milk) but you can always make your own low carb chocolate by following my recipe!
- Cocoa Powder. I much prefer dutch process cocoa powder in sweets, as it’s significantly less bitter than regular!
- Milk. I swap between unsweetened light almond or coconut milk.
- Allulose/Sweetener. Erythritol will work as well but will have a grainer texture
