  • Customize Flavors: Experiment with different extracts like peppermint or almond for unique flavor variations.
  • Adjust Thickness: If you prefer a thicker hot chocolate, you can simmer it for a few more minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.
  • Use a Frother: For an extra frothy texture, you can use a milk frother or immersion blender before pouring the hot chocolate into mugs.
  • Dairy-Free Options: If you’re using almond milk or coconut milk, ensure they are unsweetened and have no added sugars.

This Keto Hot Chocolate is a comforting and low-carb alternative for satisfying your chocolate cravings on a keto diet.
