    Low carb chocolate drink

    I have sought after drinks that were low carb.

    After looking around the dairy section I found the unsweetened Almond Milk which sometimes omits the word 'milk' so as not to mislead customers. This is low on carbs but gives a bit of the milk-like flavor.

    I mix unsweetened cocoa along with Stevia, as a sweetener, plus a dash of salt and a drop of vanilla extract.

    It seems I have had to use an extra amount of Stevia -- but this is probably because I had too much cocoa.

    It works decently as a cold drink but I'm unsure how it would be heated up.

    I like dark chocolate Silk Almond Milk.

    I need the calcium, and I have a hard time drinking regular milk. Don't think it's low-carb, though.

    But is sure is yummy!

    The hard thing is finding drinks with a sweetener other than sugar, sucralose or aspartame.

    It may be worthwhile drinking this even when I'm not watching carbs

    I think Cocoa will be okay instead of Cocovia.

    This Almond Milk Cocoa drink will work until I get hooked on soda again.

    I was sort of looking at a homemade soda made without sugar or high fructose corn syrup -- but haven't figured that one out yet. But I do have some Black Cherry juice on standby toward that goal.

    You will need to look at the chocolate flavored nutritional drinks like Ensure or Boost. They have vitamins and protein and some carbs but not as much as milk. You can also get the ones for diabetics like Glucerna that are lower in carbs and sugar.
