Creamy Low Carb Hot Chocolate on the Dukan Diet

I put this recipe in one of my other posts but it isn’t easy to find unless you know which post it is in and as I’ve recently written a post about chocolate craving I thought I’d better make it easier  to find.  The skimmed milk powder and reduced fat, no sugar added, cocoa powder are both tolerated items so this is a treat you need to save for yourself every now and again.  This means that you should avoid it in the Attack Phase if you want to maximize your weight loss in this phase.

Creamy Low Carb Hot Chocolate


  • One mug of zero fat/skim milk
  • One tablespoon of skimmed/fat free milk powder
  • One teaspoon of reduced fat, no added sugar, cocoa powder
  • Sweetener to taste


  1. Put your milk powder and cocoa powder in a small bowl.
  2. Mix these both to a smooth paste using a a small amount of the milk.
  3. Then using a whisk mix in the remainder of the milk.
  4. Microwave on high for 60 seconds and whisk in your sweetener.
  5. Microwave again for a further 60 seconds.
  6. Whisk again and pour into your mug.
  7. Decorate with a little cocoa powder and serve.

    Hi Amber, I don’t like the taste of tofu. I am an Indian and I can make paneer from fat free milk at home. I prefer the paneer over tofu. I m on the cruise phase and was wondering can I replace tofu with the fat free paneer. I don’t feel like eating tofu. I am a vegetarian. So tofu is a major part if my meals.

      Hi Shilpa

      Paneer isn’t the same as tofu so isn’t an ideal substitute. You could try replacing some tofu and see if it makes any change to your rate of weight loss.

    Hi Amber,

    Where can I get the cocoa powder in the UK currently? I can’t see it in any supermarkets

    Hi amber. I bought some sugar free jam to put on my dukan bread.iv been missing my toast and jam. Is it ok to do this?.Also is it ok to eat beef sausages from the butchers ?.they have less fat than supermarket sausages. Thanx Polly xx

      Hi Polly

      I’m afraid that sugar free jam isn’t allowed on the Dukan and sausages from your butcher are unlikely to be 100% meat as most sausages have rusk or something similar which contain carbs. They may contain less fat than supermarket sausages but how much fat is that?

    Hi Amber,

    I’m on day 3 of the attack phase, 4 more to go, but i’m having really bad sweet cravings. I found this site to be of so much help and love the idea of the oat porridge in place of a gallete. Anyway I had a few other questions, like are there any sweets/desserts that can be bought off the shelf? I’m a vegetarian and all the sf jelly has gelatine in, so that’s a no no, I was wondering about these really low calorie weight watcher powders which you whisk up with skimmed milk? Would they be okay? Anything sweet will do, as long as it doesn’t take ages to make 🙂

    Thank you

      Hi Nadya

      Weight Watchers Jelly Crystals don’t contain gelatin but they do contain some glucose whgich isn’t really allowed

      Ingredients – Gelling Agents (Carrageenan E407, Potassium Citrate E332, Sodium Citrate E331), Dried Glucose Syrup, Citric Acid E330, Colours (beetroot red E162, annatto E160b), Flavouring, Sweeteners (acesulframe-k E950, sucralose E955)

      but they would be a better choice than the Weight Watchers Flavour Whips as the whips are higher in carbs

      Ingredients – Modified Maize Starch, Maltodextrin, Vegetable Oil, Sugar, Thickeners: Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate, Emulsifier: Acetic Acid Esters of Mono- and Diglycerides of Fatty Acids, Natural Flavouring, Natural Caramel Powder, Milk Protein, Sweeteners: Sucralose, Acesulfame K Allergy Information: May Contain Gluten, May Contain Wheat, May Contain Eggs, Contains Milk, May Contain Nuts, May Contain Soya\Soybeans May contain traces of nuts, wheat, gluten, egg & soya.

      Kind regards

    Hi Amber,

    Just to confirm, is it just skimmed milk powder that is tolerated,while skimmed milk itself is still OK?

    I have 45-90ml skimmed milk a day, so I just want to make sure I’m not disadvantaging myself by doing this!

    • Amber on April 9, 2013

      Hi Sarah

      It is just the powder you need to treat as a tolerated item unless you use it to make up milk. The fat free/low fat dairy products do contain some carbs and this is why the coached version of the Dukan diet recommends a daily limit of 1 kg for dairy foods.

      Best wishes
