I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. I did. From a diet standpoint I decided it would definitely be a cheat day. I enjoyed a cheesy ham and potato casserole, fruit, and gluten free double chocolate chip muffins. It was delicious and wonderful but I’m definitely ready to get back on track!
One of my favorite (quick and easy!) treats lately has been my keto coco, or hot chocolate. You can get the flavor (and comfort!) of hot chocolate without cheating….
and get a potent serving of antioxidants and a decent source of protein, but more importantly- a chocolate fix! And only three ingredients!
I tolerate milk so I heat up about 1 cup of fairlife filtered whole milk and then whisk in 2 heaping tablespoons of cacao powder and about 1 1/2 tablespoons monk fruit sweetener. You could easily adjust up or down depending on the sweetness desired. You could also add in some concentrated coffee or espresso for an energizing, polyphenol-packed mocha!
This cocoa tastes like the real deal but only clocks in at 10 net carbs and 290 calories.
Great for days when it’s “spring” but you live in Minnesota and it’s still freezing out!
