Hot cocoa is so easy to make sugar free! This can even be keto friendly if you use all heavy whipping cream or your favorite milk.

I like to mix the almond milk and the heavy whipping cream. All heavy whipping cream is just too rich for me, and the almond milk offsets it a little.

I prefer to use stevia or coconut sugar to sweeten my hot chocolate.

This make 2 larger mugs of hot cocoa. You can easily double or triple it for a crowd. You can also add a little bit of peanut butter or Nutella, cinnamon, peppermint stevia, or even some chili powder. Not all of these are sugar free, so use what's safe for your diet.

Slowly add the heavy whipping cream 1 tablespoon at a time and continue whisking.
Add the unsweetened almond milk slowly while whisking.
Heat over medium/low heat until hot. Do not let it boil or the heavy whipping cream will form a skin on top.
