There is nothing as comforting as a good chocolate milk, but when on the keto diet it may be challenging to enjoy chocolate milk. The chocolate milk available in stores is usually filled with sugar and carbs,  making it very difficult to fit into any low carb diet.

However with a few adjustments, you can easily make some delicious low carb chocolate milk and once again, enjoy a keto version of a childhood drink without compromising taste or your diet. A big part of this recipe has to do with the milk used and the chocolate used which can make or break this recipe if not chosen wisely.

 

Which milk is best for keto?

Most milks are not keto friendly. In fact, here are the stats for different milks:

  • Cow’s milk – 12 grams of carbs
  • Rice milk- 22 grams of carbs
  • Soy milk- 4 grams of carbs

This is why unsweetened almond milk is one of the best options on a keto diet. One cup of unsweetened almond milk contains 1.1 grams of carbs and 0.7 grams of fiber.

 

What kind of chocolate is best for keto?

Like milk, the chocolate used for this recipe must be unsweetened and low in carbs.

In the regular chocolate milk recipe, the chocolate is often filled with carbs.

With a cocoa powder like Anthony’s Organic Cocoa Powder there is only 1 net carb per tablespoon!

 

Carbs In Chocolate Milk

So, how may carbs are in chocolate milk? This answer is based on a number of different factors such as what kind of milk was used, what kind of chocolate was used and what kind of sweetener was used.

For typical chocolate milk, there are about 26 grams of carbs per cup. However, for keto chocolate milk, made only with keto friendly ingredients, such as this recipe, there are only 3.6 grams of carbs per serving.

 

Tips For Making The Best Keto Chocolate Milk

To make sure that you make the best low carb chocolate milk recipe you’ve ever had follow these simple tips.

  1. If you want to improve the flavor of the Keto Chocolate Milk you can add a pinch of cardamom, but if you really want to spice it up, try adding a pinch of chili powder. Other delicious things to add are ginger, turmeric, anise and nutmeg. Make sure to add just one, not all at once. 
  2. This recipe is fairly simple and does not require a fancy equipment, but if you do not have a food blender, you can whisk ingredients in a glass bowl, or even better – whisk all with an electric whisk. Be careful as it may splatter around.
  3. Cocoa powder is known to form small lumps when added to liquid. To prevent this, make sure to use room temperature milk, especially if whisking ingredients by hand. This will give you a lump-free chocolate milk.
  4. If you are wondering can you add more fat into the milk – yes, you can. The cacao pairs wonderfully with almond butter, but you can also add MCT oil or coconut oil

Now that these tips are out of the way, let’s make this drink!
