Easy Keto Desserts
We all have those nights where we want a dessert so bad, but we don’t want to put in the work to bake up a batch of cookies or brownies. To be honest, those are most of our nights.
If you decide you have the time to bake something I highly recommend you make 2-3 batches at a time and freeze them so you always have something to turn to. The majority of our desserts freeze well and taste delicious right out of the freezer, especially our chewy chocolate chip cookies!

Tips And Tricks
Dairy: We’ve already given you the biggest trick for making this dairy free using canned coconut milk, however, if you don’t have any on hand and love your dairy (we get it!) then you can swap in some heavy cream and still yield the same thick and delicious drink.
Sweeteners: While we like to use liquid stevia concentrate in this recipe any other sweetener you have on hand. You can use our sweetener conversion chart to quickly determine how much and which one to use to perfectly sweeten your keto hot chocolate!
Add-ins: anything that tastes like chocolate can be added to this hot drink. If you don’t have chocolate bar on hand you can just increase the amount of cocoa powder, swap in some lilys chocolate chips or add some of my personal favorite, chocolate MCT powder or chocolate collagen from Perfect Keto!
