Keto Chocolate Milk Recipe

Keto Chocolate Milk Recipe

We originally created a delicious salted caramel sauce over at Cardnl and the moment we released it (and got feedback that people loved it) we started hearing this request a lot: “do a chocolate sauce next”. It took us awhile but eventually, we created the chocolate sauce. This chocolate sauce allows us to have the right base ingredient for a lot of great chocolate sauce related recipes (this being one).

All of the products we make over at Cardnl are Keto Approved. This means they don’t raise blood sugar and are safe for people on a Ketogenic diet. This also translates in to being safe for people who are either: pre-diabetic, type 2 diabetic, or type 1 diabetic.

The ingredients for a tasty chocolate milk recipe that won’t raise blood sugar must be low in carbs. Cow’s milk is generally high in carbs (with the exception of lactose-free milk which is a little lower in carbs/sugar). Alternate options are unsweetened nut milks (we like almond or macadamia milk), or a half-and-half combo of heavy cream and water (this may be a little too thick for some people.

Milk Options for Sugar Free Chocolate Milk

Let’s review how many net carbs are in each serving of different milk varieties.

Carbs in Whole Milk

There are around 12 grams of carbohydrates in 8oz of whole milk derived from a cow.

Carbs in Lactose Free Whole Milk

There are around 6 grams of carbohydrates in 8oz of Lactose-Free whole milk from a cow. Lactose free usually means that the enzyme lactase has been added.

Carbs in Unsweetened Macadamia Milk

While I don’t think nut “milks” should be called milk… (it’s water) – however, that’s what we call them. There are around 1 gram of carbs in 8oz of unsweetened Macadamia milk.

Carbs in Unsweetened Almond Milk

There are around 1.5 grams of carbs in 8oz of unsweetened Almond milk.

Carbs in Heavy Cream & Water

We love this option for our Keto hot cocoa mix. However, when you mix heavy cream and water (and don’t warm it up for a hot drink) it tends to be a little too thick. However, you might love it. There is 1g net carb in an 8oz glass of 50/50 heavy cream and water.

Sugar Free Chocolate Milk

What makes this recipe approved for a sugar free lifestyle? It’s the zero sugar chocolate sauce at Cardnl.

You’ll want to combine your choice of milk and zero sugar chocolate sauce in a cup that is at least 8oz capacity (preferably a little larger to have room for stirring).

Stir vigorously until thoroughly combined. This is easier with an immersion blender or stick blender. Alternately, you can use a glass jar or shaker jar with a lid, close tightly, and shake well to combine.
