The Drink's Ingredients
There are just five simple ingredients in this iced white chocolate mocha recipe and that includes the ice! Here's more information about what I used to make this yummy drink.
Keto Whipped Cream
You'll top the iced white chocolate mocha with some keto whipped cream. You can either buy sugar-free whipped cream at the store or make your own.
Sugar-Free White Chocolate Chips
To make your own white chocolate sauce, you'll melt some sugar-free white chocolate baking chips. My go-to is from ChocZero!
Use unsweetened and unflavored almond milk to make the keto white chocolate sauce. This thins down the melted white chocolate chips, making it easier to pour the sauce into your iced mocha.
In order to make it a coffee drink, you need some sort of strong coffee. I prefer brewed espresso because it packs a caffeinated punch!
Instant coffee can also work; just make sure it is really strong.
Please note: Check out the recipe card at the bottom for a full list of ingredients used to make this low-carb recipe.
- Use an espresso machine. This is the easiest way to brew espresso. I have this machine in my kitchen.
- Stir with a long-handled spoon. Many of the ingredients like to sit on the bottom of the cup.
- Melt white chocolate chips carefully. If you don't want to use the microwave, you can melt them in a saucepan on the stove.
There are just a few really simple steps involved - you'll have an iced white mocha in no time at all! It tastes like the Starbucks drink.
1. Make the white chocolate sauce
First, place the white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl with two tablespoons of almond milk.
Microwave slowly - in 15-second increments - and stir in between each. Keep repeating this step until all the chips are melted.
2. Add chocolate sauce to the mug
Pour the white chocolate sauce into your favorite coffee mug or glass. I like to pour it down all sides, so it slightly sticks to the cup.
3. Add the espresso
Pour the espresso on top of the white chocolate sauce. Then, add the ice cubes and half a cup of almond milk. Stir this completely.
4. Top with whipped cream
Top your iced white chocolate mocha with some whipped cream. There you have it! Your drink is ready to enjoy.
One sip, and you'll agree. This keto iced white chocolate mocha recipe has the most amazing and delicious flavor without added sugar.
I like to make and drink this iced white chocolate mocha whenever I am craving an iced coffee drink. You can serve it with your favorite keto baked dessert.
This would taste amazing with a low-carb scone. Talk about the classic coffee shop combination!
If you are going to drink it for breakfast, then make some keto egg bites on the side. Now you'll have an easy (and portable) high-protein breakfast.
Save this recipe for white chocolate mocha sauce because you can drizzle it on top of other things - like strawberries or keto blueberry donuts.
There are a lot of different ways you can change up this recipe for iced white chocolate mocha.
If you don't like espresso and just want a quick coffee drink, just add your favorite cold brew coffee. Or, make a cup of regular coffee and let it cool completely before adding it to the iced cup with the homemade white chocolate sauce.
You can also make sweetened whipped cream. Just add a little bit of your favorite sugar-free sweetener to your whipped cream recipe.
Drizzle some sugar-free chocolate sauce on top to contrast the white whipped cream (and a richer flavor too). Or, add some sugar-free caramel sauce! The options are pretty endless.
