Hot chocolate is one of the most beloved beverages for its rich and creamy taste. When trying to maintain your blood sugar levels, having hot cocoa, especially with whole milk, can be a bad decision. The amount of sugar and lactose in milk can spike glucose levels. Ultimately, this drink is not a very healthy option for you.

Tips to optimise your hot chocolate for blood sugar stability
• Try replacing your hot chocolate mixes with pure cacao or cocoa, which is unsweetened and has other benefits.
• Consider using a little sugar or swapping it for stevia, which is a lot sweeter than sugar but is very low in calories.
• Consider soy or almond milk for your hot chocolate. This is safe enough to avoid the dreading spikes in your blood sugar levels.

Consuming a healthy diet is as significant as regularly checking blood glucose levels. So enjoy your drink while monitoring its possible health effects.
