I have several hot chocolate recipes on this site – but this is the first one with alcohol! It's rich but not super sweet – it feels very grown-up!

If you're concerned about including alcohol on a low carb diet, please read my article – but know that you're only getting two tablespoons of wine per serving with this recipe! It's just enough to make a delicious difference.

For the red wine, I'd recommend something dry, as it will typically contain fewer carbs. Dry Farm Wines is a company that I've known for years and they specialize in wines with a VERY low carb count! They lab-test every wine to make sure that it is less than 1 carb per liter – and all their wines are organic and free of additives, sugar, and chemicals.

How to Make Low Carb Red Wine Hot Chocolate

Pour some unsweetened almond milk into a saucepan and add some low carb chocolate. I used Lily's Original Dark Chocolate, which is super easy to buy in stores these days.

Place the pan over a low-medium heat and cook until the chocolate has fully melted into the milk, stirring or whisking occasionally.
