An unforgettable dessert drink – Keto Red Velvet Hot Chocolate! Make this Valentine’s Days stand out with this creamy, eye-catching treat.

My first recipe for the New Year! This hot chocolate is not your ordinary cocoa! No, this gorgeous drink is really a Red Velvet dessert that is perfectly suitable for a romantic Valentine’s night. The chocolate drink is made with white chocolate, cocoa, heavy cream, and milk, and then topped off with the creamiest frosting.

Red Velvet Hot Chocolate served with a straw.

The result is a luscious, thick, and creamy dessert drink that works perfectly well for your low-carb diet. No added sugars, no gluten, just some good old fat and protein! The recipe makes two large servings (or 3 smaller servings). Each serving has 7 grams of net carbs and is very filling!

You will love how fast and easy it is to make!

Tips for making the creamiest Red Velvet Hot Chocolate!

Red color. I use Watkins Natural Food Dye to color the hot chocolate, but you can use any kind really, even beet powder. The amount of color needed will depend on your preferences and the type of dye you use. Food coloring does affect the flavor of the chocolate, so I like to taste the drink and topping before I add more color.

You can also completely leave out any dye. Not everyone likes to use coloring in their food and the hot chocolate will be just as yummy without any red coloring!

Topping. Prepare the topping first and store it in the fridge while making the hot chocolate. Use softened cream cheese for the topping, as cold cream cheese won’t mix well with the whipped cream. Divide the cream topping between two bowls. Color the topping in one bowl and leave the other white.

Hot chocolate. To make the cocoa, heat the milk and cream, then turn off heat and add the chocolate chips and cocoa. Easy!

Assembly. Divide the chocolate drink between two glasses. Then top off with the colored topping, stir, and the add some of the white topping. I like to use a piping bag to add the white topping. You can now decorate with cocoa, grated chocolate, sugar-free sprinkles, or even berries. Have fun!
