This recipe was named because of its tendency to cause looser than normal stools in about 9% of our beta testers, so if that is the case with you, look up our Keto Hot Chocolate recipe instead (unless looser stools is something you want, since it can be a nice break from chronic constipation or can give you something in between both extremes, AKA normal bowel movements…).
- 1/2 cup filtered water (or organic black coffee for a mocha version)
- 1/2 cup full fat almond milk (unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk (unsweetened)
- 1 T grass-fed butter
- 2 T MCT oil
- 1 T coconut oil
- 1/8 t organic vanilla extract
- 1/2 T cayenne pepper

- 1/2 to 1 t chocolate stevia (depending on your sweet tooth)
- 1 T powdered erythritol
Combine filtered water, almond milk, and coconut milk. Heat liquid on medium-low heat for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and mix in butter. Once the butter is almost completely melted, add the liquid to the blender. Add remaining ingredients and blend for several seconds. Serve warm and enjoy!

History Fun Fact: This drink was inspired by King Montezuma who invented a spicy chocolate drink similar to this and drank as much as 2 gallons every day! This of course would NOT be recommended. We recommend limiting this one to 1 per day because it is so filling, due to the high amounts of MCT’s.
Physiology fun fact: When consumed in the morning, this recipe will keep you full for HOURS and will set the tone for the day by putting your body in a fat burning state.
