My children love scorching cocoa.
I have to amend that.
My children looooooooooove scorching cocoa.
And frankly, I don’t have the time or the inclination to face on the range and prepare dinner cream and coconut milk and baker’s chocolate, and, and, and, and so forth and so forth, for fifteen minutes to make two cups of cocoa. Because I’m all about #teamlazy, I made a decision to give you one thing I may whip up shortly and with minimal effort.
My powdered scorching cocoa combine was thus born.
The nutshell is that I needed a keto alternative for the stuff that is available in a packet. Being capable of dump and stir right into a cup of scorching boxed coconut milk or watered down heavy cream is what I used to be searching for, and so I scoured the interwebs for knock off recipes. I needed to create one thing pretty near the model that rhymes with Mwiss Siss, and I believe I did fairly nicely.
With the vacations arising, this may make a very nice, keto-pleasant present for the opposite ketonians in your life.
Notes: To make this, I used powdered heavy cream instead of powdered milk. I get mine off Amazon and personally just like the Hoosier Hill Farms model. It’s clear and fairly priced, which makes me completely happy.
When making ready your cup of cocoa, you should utilize as a lot or little of the combination as you’d like. I rely complete carbs, so I are likely to go lighter on the combination and keep on with 1 tbsp per cup of heated unsweetened coconut milk (the skinny stuff from the carton), however my children like 2 heaping tbsp in a steaming cup of about half heavy cream and half water. Make it to your style and choice, and don’t be afraid to tip somewhat flavored extract (or flavored MCT powder) into your cup.
This is among the uncommon recipes on the location that makes use of quantity ratios as an alternative of weights. That’s as a result of this recipe works greatest that method!

For those that are avoiding dairy, be at liberty to make use of powdered coconut milk instead of the heavy cream. Be conscious that can in all probability change the macronutrients data. Coconut milk has extra pure sugar in it than heavy cream, so count on the next carb rely per tbsp combine with this substitution.
