It’s the perfect time of year to brew up a cup of this rich and creamy dairy-free White Hot Chocolate and relax by the fire. Made with real cacao butter, this low-carb hot chocolate recipe is the perfect keto drink when you leave out the honey.
Low-Carb White Hot Chocolate
I’ve wanted to create a low-carb, dairy-free White Hot Chocolate recipe for as long as I can remember. That’s because when bought at the corner coffee shop this drink is generally super sweet and made with far more sugar than my system can handle. If you’re looking for more low-carb recipes, you’ll definitely want to check out my Low-Carb Diets page!
Homemade White Hot Chocolate
When I make this drink for myself I omit the honey from the recipe. For the boys, I leave it in since they want their treats a bit sweeter. Making homemade hot chocolate is so easy that my boys have been doing it for years. Another one of our favorite recipes is for Mexican Hot Chocolate. It will seriously warm you up with its spicy goodness!
Peppermint White Hot Chocolate
If you’re looking for other variations of homemade hot chocolate recipes, there’s so much you can do with this one! Add peppermint extract to taste for a Peppermint White Hot Chocolate, or add hazelnut extract for a luscious White Nutella Hot Chocolate. That one’s my favorite!
White Hot Chocolate
- 1 cup water
- 1¼ cups full fat coconut milk
- 1 ounce cacao butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 8 drops vanilla stevia
- 1 pinch celtic sea salt
Caffeine-Free White Hot Chocolate
Another great thing about this is that it’s a caffeine-free hot chocolate recipe! The cacao butter is purely fat from the cacao bean and therefore does not contain any caffeine, which is in the cocoa powder component of chocolate! You can drink a big mug of this before bedtime and you won’t be kept up all night with a caffeine buzz!
Dairy-Free White Hot Chocolate

This post is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first published this recipe in 2013.
This was delicious. I made it exactly as directed, except I shook it in a blender bottle since my blender was in the dishwasher. Highly recommend!
Holly, I’m so happy to hear this is delicious!
Can I say amazing! Made this last night and loved it. Made again tonight except this time I doubled the honey and stevia (bad I know, but oh so good) and added a few drops of mint extract. I also added some homemade marshmallows. Thank you, thank you, thank you. First blogger I ever followed and still my favorite!
Melissa, yes you can!
how did you know that i’ve been poking for a white hot chocolate recipe?? i want this next year at Christmas with a few drops of peppermint…. yum!
Crista, I can tell you it’s amazing with peppermint!
Oh wow. This sounds absolutely divine! I bet a spoonful of sunbutter stirred into this would be reminiscient of the Reese’s white chocolate Christmas trees I used to love so much…
Made this today and it was delicious! It came out fine using a regular blender and frothed up beautifully! Love this recipe!
Lisa, thanks for letting me know you love this recipe :-)
Just made this, no honey, but added cinnamon and nutmeg. Yummy. The
peppedmint suggestion sounds great, I will have to try it next. Thanks so much!
Judith, you’re welcome! I’m so happy to hear this is yummy :-)

A friend and I made this today and it’s delicious. We left out the tablespoon of honey and didn’t miss it. I forgot to blend it for frothiness sake, so I have that to look forward to next time (in like 15 minutes).
Jennifer, I’m so happy to hear this is delicious :-)
Cate @ Chez CateyLou says
Oooh, this sounds so comforting and looks delicious! I want a mug right now on this freezing night!
Yes! I am making this TONIGHT!
(and Le Crueset has mugs?? Such joy!)
Hi Elana! I wanted to find raw cacao butter but didn’t know where to buy it. Thanks for the tip :) Happy new year and I can’t wait to try your white hot chocolate!
