Ingredients and Substitutions
Sugar-Free Almond Milk
Being on a low carb, keto diet, our nonflavored low carb milk choices come down to using an unsweetened nut or seed milk.
Unsweetened almond milk is common milk to use. However, there are many others, such as hemp milk, flax milk, cashew, and coconut.
Heavy whipping cream
This heavy cream is truly optional for our low-carb chocolate recipe, but it gives you a nice creamy flavor that I loved as a kid.
If you want to keep this dairy-free, try using canned coconut cream in place of the heavy whipping cream. You can also go without the cream. Of course, the end result will just be less creamy.
Brands of Chocolate Collagen
I enjoy using Perfect Keto’s Chocolate Collagen for this recipe. It blends really well in cold liquids and is already sweetened, so no additional ingredients are needed.
If you don’t have Perfect Keto’s collagen, you can use other chocolate collagen as well.
- Perfect Keto
- Further Foods
- Vital Proteins
- Ancient Nutrition
- Orgain Keto Collagen
- Preferred Elements
- Great Lakes Gelatin
You can also use cocoa powder too if you don’t have any collagen powder.
Directions and Tips
All you have to do is add all of the ingredients together in a blender and mix it!
I also love using a handheld milk frother for this recipe as well. No need to get a blender dirty. It’s just as easy too!
However, I do recommend adding the heavy whipping cream after you blend the milk and collagen. This only helps to avoid some extra frothiness. The choice is yours.
Keto Chocolate Milk Storage
If you make more than 1 serving of this recipe, pour it into an air-tight glass container. Then it can last up to a week in the fridge.
If you just want to make a chocolate milk recipe even easier, you can buy some keto chocolate syrups!
However, your end product may not be under 10 total carbs. If you care. lol I only say this because all of my recipes on my site are under 10 total, even with sugar alcohols.
I have not had any of these syrups but I still wanted to inform you of them.
The Best Milk for the Keto Diet
The best milk for a keto diet is heavy cream and water mixed together. Pour 1 cup of water into a glass and then add 1 tablespoon of heavy cream with a few drops of liquid sweetener. Mix and enjoy your glass of keto milk.
What can I do with this Milk Recipe?
Of course, you can just drink it. However variety is the spice of life, right? Here are a couple of ideas.
- Make a chocolate keto protein shake. Add in some more protein or even peanut butter and blend.
- If you don’t want more protein, just make a low carb shake. Add in some ice or even some cream cheese to make it thicker like a shake. Xanthan gum does a good job at thickening liquids, just use a very small amount.
Can’t I just buy the chocolate almond milk?
Yes, you can, just make sure to buy the unsweetened variety.
Can I drink chocolate milk on keto?
Yes of course you can. You can either buy the unsweetened variety or you can make your own with this recipe.
