1 servingservings


  • 1 oz. 30 g unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp (5 g) cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp (4 g) powdered erythritol (optional)
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup 240 ml boiling water


Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  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.

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.

    may have been your cocoa. I used organic cocoa powder and it was perfect, even without any sweetener.

    do you melt the butter or whip it without melting

    Let's get real here. This tastes HORRIBLE as written. Add heavy cream and any sweetener that isn't Stevia. It has a metallic, bitter taste. I liked this with erythritol.

    None of the recipes here work. The aren't sweetened. You have to sweeten chocolate or it tastes disgusting. Just use low carb sweetener.

    Tried the recipe above, it was terrible. Added whipping cream and stevia still terrible...

    For a low carb sweetner and 0 sugar, try monk fruit sweetner. It comes in 1lb bags.

    Agreed! Most of the recipes on this site are good but this was a bust.

    I haven't made this yet. Just started Keto in July 2018 after doing the 2 week meal challenge from this site. I haven't stopped since although my fiance, Mark, and I just took a break for our wedding this past Saturday, 10/20. Hot chocolate has always been a go to drink as the thermometer drops. I don't really like butter so I find myself challenged with a lot of keto recipes. I use it just maybe not enough of it. I'm going to try this without the butter because (for me) no! I will also use Almond milk instead of water and the idea of whipped heavy cream sounds great to me - just need to check the carbs on the heavy cream. Don't want to get too close to 20 grams.

    As far as low carb goes this was awesome! The longer you are on Keto, the better stuff like this tastes. I added heavy whip cream (more than a tbsp) salt, erythritol, vanilla and 1.5 tbsp cacao powder into water. Blended it up and it was great!

    I tried this without any sweetener and it is great!!! just added a little of coconut oil.
    Can I take it as a breakfast instead of bulletproof coffee?
