As much as I love going to Starbucks to grab a hot coffee drink, I also love to grab a hot chocolate from time to time.
While there are plenty of low carb Starbucks drink options there is not a low carb hot chocolate to grab at Starbucks. So I had to come up with my own, which I do at times pour into a travel mug and bring with me when I go out.

Low Carb Sweeteners for Hot Chocolate
For this recipe I used granule pyure stevia, however you can use your favorite low carb sweetener that you have on hand. I do however you will want to stick with using a granule sweetener, powdered sweetener and liquid sweetener do not work well with this recipe.
Lakanto Monkfruit (Get 20% off when you use coupon code MIDGETMOMMA) and Swerve are the other 2 low carb sweeteners that I use in my house. I have used both of them at times when I have made this keto drink recipe, and both of them worked well.
