  • 15 fl-oz Atkins Milk Chocolate Delight Shake
  • 4 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 0 1/8 tsp peppermint extract
  • 0 1/4 tsp cocoa powder, unsweetened


  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, warm shake (1 full shake plus ½ cup), 2 tablespoons cream, and peppermint extract, stirring frequently, until steaming and bubbles begin to form around the edges, about 5 minutes. 
  2. In a small bowl, whip remaining 2 tablespoons heavy cream to soft peaks.

Cooking Tip

This simple keto hot cocoa can be adapted with your favorite flavor! Replace the peppermint extract with your favorite flavor extract for an endless variety of warming hot cocoa drinks. The key to this recipe is to keep an eye on it while heating on the stove, stirring frequently to prevent skin from forming and prevent it from coming to a boil or scorching.
