Just blend 1 scoop of Complete Paleo Protein in the delicious Chocolate Flavor into 8 oz. of water and then heat until warm and steamy in a saucepan. That's it!

If desired, add a couple of spoonfuls of heavy whipping cream and a dash of Ceylon Cinnamon on top. We made our whipped cream with 4 Tablespoons of Xylitol and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and then whipped the cream mixture until fluffy.

What makes this a keto recipe? This Keto Hot Chocolate is low carb and high protein! Our Paleo Protein is a beef based protein sweetened with stevia and natural chocolate flavors. So you're getting delicious sweet chocolate flavor with very little carbohydrates. This keto recipe also has no added sugar!

What is the keto diet?

When we eat a low carbohydrate diet we have raised ketone levels in our system. Ketones are the byproducts of the breakdown of fat which is a normal process in the human body. Mostly everyone has excess fat in their bodies which makes this an extremely readily available energy source that we can utilize rather than relying on a high carbohydrate and sugar diet which can lead to obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.

One of the great things about the keto diet is that you will experience more energy and better mental focus. Our bodies use fat as the energy source rather than sugar on the keto diet causing less fatigue, less brain fog, more appetite control and reduced cravings. Weight loss, lower blood pressure, increased heart healthy HDL (good) cholesterol, increase energy levels and reduced blood sugar levels are all positive effects of following a keto diet.
