Low Carb Mocha – Take 1

On starting my recent journey into intermittent fasting I’ve found that it’s actually not as difficult as I thought it’d be not to eat ALL the time.  In fact I’ve found I actually don’t need everything I was eating previously, two main meals a day along with the occasional homemade indulgences in between (if I couldn’t still eat the good stuff I wouldn’t be doing it :p) and I’m good to go.

However before I took this dive into health and nutrition my go to drink at any coffee shop was a Mocha.  Which, of course, is essentially caffeinated hot chocolate.. Mmmm.  Now I obviously refuse to order that now, what with it being over 300+ empty calories and enough sugar to create a tsunami in my blood sugar levels, so I thought I’d try to find a way to make one that’s low carb while still tasting gooood – and this is the result.  (It’s also got a decent amount of fat in it as I’m working on getting into ketosis atm)

Now bare in mind this is deliberately labelled take 1 because I know for sure with a little more experimentation I’ll eventually stumble upon the “Ultimate Low Carb Keto Friendly Dark Chocolate Mochachino” but for now, this is the winner! 🙂


Low Carb Mocha - Take 1
Prep Time 2 minutes
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 square Dark Chocolate (Highest cocoa percentage you can find - I used 90%)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut milk
  • 1 cup Coffee
  1. Place the chocolate in a blender.
  2. Pour the coffee on top and leave it for 30 seconds so the chocolate softens.
  3. Put the rest of the ingredients in the blender.
  4. Pulse until everything is combined and there's a little froth at the top.
  5. Pour and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

For a frothier top you could try a bit more cinnamon or adding some butter. This is still a work in progress so if you have any tips on how to improve this and reach the ultimate keto mocha please do let me know in the comments ☺️
