I literally make this for myself every day. Every. Day. It doesn’t taste exactly like traditional hot chocolate, there is no sugar in this recipe! I try to eat low sugar and carbs for health reasons, but I LOVE hot chocolate and I was so sad without it. That is why this recipe was born. I personally don’t love the taste of artificial sweeteners, and I have tried many. I use almond milk because it doesn’t have a strong taste to me and it is low carb. You can use whatever non-dairy milk you love or use milk that makes you happy.

My favorite thing about making hot chocolate is my milk frother! I use this thing all the time for mixing up shakes and I really do have a cup of hot chocolate every day, hahaha.

A note on coconut sugar: It’s similar to sugar but is said to have a lower glycemic index. Personally, when I have coconut sugar, I don’t feel as icky as if I have sugar. If you have tried coconut sugar, and you like it, let me know below!
