white hot chocolate, scd compliant

This is so tasty I have to make extra for those in the household who aren’t on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It is loved by my kid with Crohn’s who is on the SCD, and it has helped with weight gain. Inspired by Elana’s Pantry Dairy Free White Hot Chocolate recipe, that another mom with a kid on SCD pointed me to, saying it seems to help her kid when flaring.

Ingredients For white hot chocolate, scd compliant

  • 2 can
    trader joe’s coconut cream (or 3 cans of trader joe’s full fat coconut milk)
  • 3 oz
    cacao butter (terrasoul brand)
  • 1/2 c
    honey, more or less to taste, my kid likes tiny bit less

    trader joe’s organic bourbon vanilla extract
  • 3 c

How To Make white hot chocolate, scd compliant

  • 1
    Use a kitchen scale to measure out 3 ounces cacao butter into a large saucepan or pot.
  • 2
    Add coconut cream, then heat until cacao butter has melted. Remove from heat.
  • White Hot Chocolate in a pot on the stove, with a ladle.
    Stir in remaining ingredients, until honey and salt are well dissolved. Can make frothy in a blender, or add a portion to a mason jar with a lid, and shake until frothy. I portion out all of it into lidded mason jars using a ladle, refrigerate leftovers, then microwave to heat & shake to get frothy, when ready to serve. This is very rich, but my kid on a very limited intro stage of the SCD in order to treat Crohn’s drinks a lot of this & it helps to keep on weight. I currently will make a double batch & it keeps in the fridge until all of it is used.
