How To Make Keto Chocolate Milk
Making keto chocolate milk is as easy as throwing your ingredients together in a blender, blending, then pouring your low carb treat into two glasses. Here are a few tips and potential questions to help you make the perfect glass of keto milk chocolate:
Use Low Carb Milks!
If you’re wondering is chocolate milk keto friendly, the answer is no. Unless you make a low carb recipe…
Crazy, I know, but there are a whole lotta natural carbs in milk. Luckily for us sticking to low carb foods, there are a handful of alternatives we can use, that are just as creamy, refreshing and delicious!
This recipe calls for “low carb milk” — feel free to make keto chocolate milk heavy cream or keto chocolate almond milk / coconut milk — whatever you have in your fridge! If you’re going the heavy cream route, I suggest using a keto chocolate milk with almond milk and heavy cream combo, as heavy cream on its own would be extremely rich!
Read the labels on the products you buy, some manufacturers add sugar and carbs to store bought products!
Dutch process Cocoa vs Regular Cocoa..
You’ll notice in the ingredient list below, I suggest using dutch process vs regular cocoa powder. Dutch process is cocoa powder that’s been washed with a solution to neutralize cocoa powder’s natural acidity — which gives cocoa powder a smoother, more mellow flavor.
Can you make keto milk chocolate without a blender?
Yes, you can mix everything together by hand, but a blender makes for much more evenly integrated low carb drinks!
If you’re mixing your ingredients together with a spoon, I suggest using powdered erythritol instead of granular. It’s also a good idea to pass your cocoa powder through a sieve to minimize any clumps!
Food processors aren’t meant to process liquids — using it to make your keto milk chocolate may make a giant mess!
Keto Chocolate Milk Variations
Keto milk chocolate is absolutely amazing on it’s own, but is also easy to stir in something extra for your own unique variation!
If you like your milk chocolate to be extra chocolate-y, stir in a little extra cocoa powder (cocoa powder does have carbs in it, so make sure this works with your carb count). If you’d like a sweeter drink add more erythritol!
Or, try a different take on this classic drink by adding one or more of the following ingredients to your blender before blending:
- Add a scoop of creamy peanut or almond butter
- Add a few drops of orange extract, or orange zest
- Add in some spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg
- Add a few strawberries, or other low carb fruits that work well with chocolate.
What to Do With Keto Chocolate Milk
Aside from drinking keto milk chocolate on its own, there are a ton of low carb recipes you can add it to for a major upgrade! Here are some of my favorites:
- Low carb cocktails — If you enjoy a little drink from time to time, keto milk chocolate makes for a delicious mixer! Add some vanilla flavored vodka for a low carb chocotini. (for more information, check out my guide to low carb alcohol)
- Add it to your morning coffee! Heat it up over the stove for a low carb mocha, or add it cold to your iced coffee.
- Add it to your low carb smoothies instead of low carb milk.
You can also freeze this keto chocolate milk in an ice cube tray to remedy your future milk chocolate cravings — from frozen you can add it to a blender with some liquid and top it with sugar free whipped cream for a keto chocolate milkshake!
