There's nothing more soothing than a cozy mug of a delicious, warming drink like hot chocolate, peppermint mocha, spiced apple cider, creamy turmeric ginger tea, Harry Potter butter beer, or chai hot chocolate.
So, if you're looking for something extra special to add to that list… you've got to try this luscious Instant Pot White Hot Chocolate!
White hot chocolate is creamy and warming on a cold day. This rich, Real Food version is loaded with nourishing ingredients and extra protein. Enjoy it with someone you love, or whip up a batch quickly and easily for a holiday or family gathering!
How To Make Instant Pot White Hot Chocolate
This delectable Instant Pot White Hot Chocolate cooks in just 6 minutes! If you're serving it to guests, double or triple the batch and keep it warming in the Instant Pot until you're ready to serve it.
Once cooked, simply pour the white hot chocolate into a blender with some nourishing, protein-rich, grass-fed gelatin. After whipping around, the gelatin creates a foamy topping that tastes a little bit like homemade marshmallows. Yumm!
You won't find any heavily processed white chocolate chips in this white hot chocolate. This is the real deal — a true, from-scratch white hot chocolate made with whole ingredients and pure, raw cacao butter (for that extra special white chocolate taste and healthy fats).
Why gelatin? It's known for improving skin and gut function as well as restoring and building muscle, supporting joint health, and so much more.
Instant Pot White Hot Chocolate
This delectable White Hot Chocolate is ready to drink or serve to your guests in just 6 minutes! Make it with raw milk or use any dairy-free milk you like. It's sure to make your holiday gatherings extra special!
- 3 cups raw whole milk or dairy-free milk of choice coconut milk is my favorite dairy-free option; raw whole milk is not keto
- 1/4 cup cocoa butter wafers broken into chunks
- 2 to 2-1/2 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup or use stevia instead for a sugar-free keto version
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons sustainably-sourced gelatin
- 1 tablespoon MCT oil or butter, ghee, or coconut oil
Add milk of choice, cocoa butter, sweetener, vanilla extract and sea salt to the insert pot of your pressure cooker.
Cover the pot, checking the seal and components to make sure all is well.
If using an electric cooker, such as an Instant Pot, set to low pressure for 6 minutes. If using a stove-top cooker, bring to low pressure and maintain for 6 minutes.
When cycle is complete, turn off and unplug, or remove from heat. Quick release pressure.
Using extreme caution, pour the very hot white hot chocolate into a high-powered blender such as the Vitamix. Leave at least 3 inches of space at the top since hot liquid expands in the blender.
Add gelatin and fat of choice.
Blend for about 25 seconds or until the white hot chocolate is frothy and has a foamy top.
Serve immediately. Enjoy!
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for holiday gatherings.
Grass-fed collagen can be used instead of the gelatin; you just won't get the frothy, foamy top.
3 Special Flavor Options
For Spiced White Hot Chocolate: Add 1 cinnamon stick and 3 whole cloves to the Instant Pot during the cooking process. When the white hot chocolate is done, strain or remove and discard the cinnamon stick and cloves.
For Sweet Almond-Vanilla White Hot Chocolate: Add 1/8 teaspoon pure almond extract to the cooked white hot chocolate just before blending.
