Paleo Frozen Hot Chocolate (GF)


I have been experimenting with Paleo recipes a lot lately. Which is how all of this came about. I was trying to make a Paleo chocolate milkshake… and ended up with a Paleo frozen hot chocolate. This was a pleasant surprise because I love frozen hot chocolate! It reminds me of the first one that I had at the famous Serendipity restaurant in NYC. If you haven’t been and are headed to NYC, you need to go! Theres always a long line, but its worth the wait. This recipe is wonderful because you not only get to eat a frozen hot chocolate from the comfort of your own home, but you also get to eat one that is Paleo! Double Score! paleo-frozen-hot-chocolate-perchancetocook-2I

honestly don’t know why I was surprised when the ingredients that I was putting into the blender did not result in a milkshake… I was using a hot chocolate recipe as inspiration after all. I followed the recipe for a perfect cup of hot chocolate on the Hershey’s cocoa powder box and replaced everything non-paleo with a paleo alternative. The result was delicious, satisfying, and fun! (minus the brain freeze haha) If you need something sweet and are trying to follow a Paleo diet, this is definitely worth a try :) Did I mention that it tastes like frozen hot chocolate?! Now back to the Paleo milkshake drawing board… :)

  1. Oh my goodness this is delicious! Finally, an easy Paleo dessert that doesn’t really taste like a paleo dessert! Yummy!

  2. Struggling today, the cravings for something sweet driving me nuts (don’t normally crave sweets). The family eating ice cream did not help! I went searching for a paleo frozen hot chocolate. AHHH…this did the trick…so yummy and chocolate! Was perfect and so glad I found your blog.

    1. Thanks for the comment! You’re lucky that you don’t normally crave sweets because that is all I crave! haha So glad the frozen hot chocolate did the trick. :)

    1. I’ve been experimenting with different flavor variations. I’ve been really liking 2 Tbs honey, 2 Tbs cocoa, 1 cup of coconut cream, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1.5 cups of ice. Maybe test it out with 1 Tbs cocoa. I also have tried adding frozen strawberries, which makes the cocoa flavor a bit less. :)
