I’ve been on the lookout for white chocolate powder online. The one gourmet brand I found was full of sugar and included maltodextrin, soy and other questionable ingredients. I knew I could do better and started experimenting in my kitchen. I am so pleased with how this mix turned out! It makes the best, creamiest Hot White Chocolate drink, but it also can be used to flavor coffee, smoothies or protein shakes and in any recipe where you want a rich, complex white chocolate flavor that is unforgettable!
Keto White Chocolate Powder
Yields 3/4 cup (12 servings)
1-1/2 ounces of cocoa butter (wafers or chopped)
1/4 cup heavy cream powder (I used Anthony’s brand)
2-3 tablespoons powdered erythritol sweetener, or to taste
A tiny pinch of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla powder
1. Place all of the ingredients into a food processor at the same time and process in pulses until the cocoa butter is finely chopped into minuscule bits and all of the ingredients are well combined. Store in an airtight container or glass jar at room temperature. (Note: Take your time while processing and pulse the mixture. The heat of the food processor blades could begin to melt the cocoa butter, if you process too vigorously. If you see this happening, stop the food processor and stir. Allow the mixture to cool off for a while before you continue pulsing.)
2. To make hot white chocolate, place a tablespoon of the mix into a mug and add 3/4 cup hot, low carb milk of your choice. (For low oxalate, choose coconut milk.) Stir until the mixture has incorporated and the hot cocoa is smooth.
3. You can jazz up the flavor your hot white chocolate by adding a drop or two of peppermint extract, strawberry extract, chocolate extract or orange extract.
4. Other uses: Stir into coffee, a smoothie or protein shake. Use as the powdered cocoa mix when making sugar free Hot Chocolate Bombs. Add to low carb cake or cupcake batter for a richer flavor. It’s also delicious when added to pancake batter!
