Let me tell you, DECADENT is the only word fit to describe this chocolate low carb martini!
It’s literally like dessert in a glass. Really! Who needs to go out for ice cream when you can have a sweet dreamy dessert drink that won’t bring on the calorie cavalry?
Maybe it’s the way the sweet chocolate tantalizes my taste buds. Or maybe it’s the delightful aromatic essence of Vanilla Vodka that awakens my senses and warms my insides. Perhaps I just love the deep, rich flavor the heavy cream coaxes out of that chocolate goodness.
To be honest, it’s probably all of the above and I just know you are going to feel the same way! This morbidly flavorful chocolate low carb martini is definitely in my top five low carb mixed drinks of all time. So, let’s get started!
How to Make a Chocolate Low Carb Martini
Before adding just any cocoa powder to your low carb shopping list for your sugar free vodka drinks, we’ve got to take a quick informational hike down cocoa powder lane.
Unfortunately, natural cocoa powder is very acidic which gives it a sharp, bitter flavor (an often unpleasant aftertaste in smooth, dreamy desserts). On the other hand, Dutch process cocoa is washed with a potassium carbonate solution to neutralize the acidity. This extra step gives Dutch process cocoa powder a smoother, more mellow flavor with a hint of earth tones. It’s a beautiful thing!
So, I prefer Dutch process cocoa powder in many of my low carb recipes, especially low carb chocolate milk and low carb hot chocolate — but this chocolate low carb martini really takes the cake! (Pun intended).
Also, many alcoholic low carb drinks (like a low carb Moscow mule) call for vodka because it’s so versatile. Vodka is a low carb liquor.
- Add all contents except low carb chocolate shavings into a cocktail shaker or similar contraption. Pro Tip: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, then a mason jar works just fine. Secure the lid to shake and then hold it slightly askew to strain.
- Cover and shake vigorously until well combined.
- Strain into a martini glass.
- Garnish with low carb chocolate shavings and enjoy! (or serve)

Some Low Carb Martini Swaps…
Kick up the creaminess by swapping out the almond milk for heavy cream. Making the trade and losing the low carb milk also means crafting a very rich cocktail with additional fat and calories, but some prefer it this way.
