This is my favorite time of year.  I love the smell of Holiday cheer. However, I don’t like the temptation all around me with all the sugary, fattening treats including Holiday drinks.  It’s hard to stay away from fattening stuff around the Holidays.

I try to practice a low carb diet and eat mostly from a Keto approved menu , but I have to be brutally honest; this is the most difficult time of the year for me.  There is so much temptation! I’ve got a big sweet tooth that gets me in trouble.

There’s nothing worse that feeling guilty after eating something full of sugar and carbs.  But this year I’ve decided that I am going guilt free with Torani Sugar Free Syrups

I’m going to make my own keto, low carb, sugar free French Vanilla hot chocolate.  It sounds complicated but it’s actually so simple with only 4 ingredients! It is simply the best Keto Hot Chocolate I have ever tasted!

All you need is a cup and a half of almond milk, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, and 2 tablespoons of Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla Syrup. Yum.

Heat up the almond milk on the stove top and pour in the cocoa powder. Stir until the lumps have dissolved. Then add the heavy cream.

Let it simmer for a few minutes and take off the stove. Then add the Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla Syrup and stir.

Four simple ingredients. No sweetener, just Vanilla Torani Sugar Free Syrup. If you’re anything like me, you don’t just stop there. Throw on some sugar free sprinkles!

Just dip the rim of your mug in the hot cocoa and and press down on a plate of sprinkles. Twist the cup into the sprinkles and they will stick to the rim.

Of course, no Holiday drink is complete without whipped cream. Did I say that I love that heavy cream is part of the keto diet, lol? I also added a splash of Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla Syrup to sweeten it.
