This recipe for Sugar-Free Single Cup Hot Chocolate is a perfect treat for after dinner without the guilt. This recipe is delicious and I do not miss the sugar at all. Making your own single-cup hot chocolate is as easy as opening a packet of hot chocolate. The great thing about making your own hot chocolate is that you can adjust the ingredients to suit your dietary needs.
I have a confession. I use to think in my teens that if I didn’t have a packet of hot chocolate I couldn’t make hot chocolate. Same thing for tacos and chili mix. I have learned that most things are better homemade than in the pre-mixed packets and so much healthier. I battle wanting something sweet after dinner every night and it is hard to get out of the habit of having something sweet. Making my own sugar-free hot chocolate satisfies the craving.
Milk of your choice
The great thing about making a single cup of hot chocolate is that you can use any type of milk you need. I try to eat keto as much as possible and I adjust the recipe for the keto diet. My husband likes to eat sugar-free so I can make his cup to suit his diet. So if you want to make this recipe keto and dairy-free use almond milk or cashew milk.
I like to use sugar-free syrups in my hot chocolate but you can use any sugar substitute.
Add the cocoa to the cup before the warm milk.
Heat milk on stovetop or microwave and add to the cup.
Mix with whisk or coffee frother. I find that the coffee frother mixes the cocoa and milk very well.
In conclusion, you can enjoy your sugar-free single cup hot chocolate without going to bed feeling for cheating on your diet. This drink is perfect on those cold winter nights.
