Low Carb Hot Chocolate

It’s starting to get colder here in the southwest corner of North Carolina, and one of my FAVORITE things on a cold day is to snuggle up on the couch with a mug of hot chocolate and watch some TV, usually something from my Hulu account that I’ve missed.

When I started on my Atkins journey last month, I didn’t even THINK about all the things that I was used to doing that I wouldn’t be able to do any more. I never in a million years would have thought something as simple as a mug of hot chocolate could make me sad, but, I really did miss that this past week.

Until yesterday!! I found a wonderful recipe for Low Carb hot chocolate (also known as Bulletproof hot chocolate) on an Atkins facebook group that I’m on, so I thought I would pass it on to all of you! 🙂

Ingredients:

  •  1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, the unsweetened kind that you find in the baking section  (I use Hershey’s)
  • 2-4 tablespoons coconut oil OR butter
  • 2-3 packets of sweetener (I used under a tablespoon of Splenda)
  • 3 tablespoons of HWC (Heavy Whipping Cream)

Pour a mugful of hot water into your blender.  Add ingredients and blend thoroughly.

 It will be rich, frothy and delicious.

Only 2.26 net carbs! If you don’t have a blender (like my sister…. LOL) I say go get one!! It’s completely worth it, and you can usually find them at thrift shops for a few bucks. I will admit, the next time I make it, I might add just a smidge more Splenda, but overall it was DELICIOUS and hit the spot!
