This Keto Coconut White Hot Chocolate offers a comforting way to indulge in a sweet and dairy-free wintertime treat without the sugar overload.
Hot chocolate is having a moment, and why not? If you’re gonna be cooped up inside it might as well be with a warm cup of deliciousness.
I don’t know about you, but I need to step away from the sugar after this last holiday season. I enjoyed every bite of my sugar indulgences and regret nothing, but my waistline tells me it’s time to back away from the sugary treats. At least temporarily.
If you and your waistline are on the same page, I’ve got a recipe for white hot chocolate that you can feel good about indulging in. This Keto Coconut White Hot Chocolate can be made with just 2 ingredients! And contains around 4 grams* of sugar per serving (*this is my best estimate, I am not a nutritionist, nor did I take the time to count how many chocolate chips are in 3/4 of a cup; the recipe makes 2 (6) ounce cups of hot chocolate). And it’s dairy-free!
How is this possible!? Thankfully ChocZero exists. It’s a product line that offers sweet treats with zero sugar added. There is only 1 gram of sugar per 60 white chocolate chips. Once you get yourself some ChocZero white chocolate chips you’re halfway to a *nearly* sugar-free cup of tastiness.

The second ingredient you’ll need is a can of coconut milk. This is where a teeny tiny bit of sugar comes in. Trader Joe’s Organic Coconut Milk has only 1 gram of sugar per 1/4 cup. Since I’m not a sugar teetotaler, this recipe makes me feel good about indulging in a cup of (two) of Keto Coconut White Hot Chocolate.
How do you make Keto Coconut White Hot Chocolate?
Simply add a can of coconut milk to a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat. Then add 1/2 cup up to 3/4 cup of ChocZero white chocolate chips to the pot (less and you can still taste the flavor of the coconut, more and the white chocolate takes over). Whisk until the chocolate chips have melted and the liquid is hot but not boiling. Remove from heat and add some tasty extras.
While solid with only two ingredients, this Keto Coconut White Hot Chocolate can be easily elevated. I like to add just a little bit of vanilla extract (1/4 teaspoon) and top with whipped cream.
- Flavored extract (think vanilla, coconut, almond, peppermint)
- Cinnamon or allspice
- Whipped cream (dairy or non-dairy)
You could also sneak in some collagen or matcha powder to make it a healthy, indulgent treat.
