1 g net carbs | 2 g fiber | 23 g fat | 1 g protein | 216 kcal


Prep Time: 5 min | Easy | 1 Serving


• 28 g unsalted butter

• 1 tbsp cocoa powder

• 2½ tsp powdered erythritol

• ¼ tsp vanilla extract

• 240 ml boiling water


1. Put the ingredients in a tall beaker to use with an immersion blender.

2. Mix for 15–20 seconds or until there’s a fine foam on top.

3. Pour the hot cocoa carefully into to cups and enjoy.

Serving suggestions

If you want to make your hot cocoa even richer, add a dollop of whipped coconut cream before serving. Or whipped heavy cream if you tolerate dairy.

Replace the water with full-fat milk for a richer taste. But keep in mind that the carb count will go up about 11 grams per cup.

If you want something extra, add a few chocolate shavings or a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!

Substituting ingredients

Use ghee (clarified butter) or coconut oil for a dairy-free option.

Enjoy it right away

This recipe isn’t good for preparing ahead of time. Once chilled, the melted butter will set and separate which will leave you with a grainy mixture.

If this accidentally happens, you can reheat it in a sauce pan over medium heat and then pulse it with an immersion blender until smooth and frothy again.
