Celeste's low carb hot chocolate

Many low carbers love their bulletproof coffee, and rightly so, one mug can keep a person going for 6 hours or more before you need to eat again.  The benefit of having bulletproof coffee at breakfast time is that it programs your body to burn fat all day long. 

David Asprey aka The Bulletproof Executive, learned about the power of butter at 18,000 feet elevation near Mt. Kailash in Tibet when he staggered into a guest house from the -10 degree weather and was literally rejuvenated by a creamy cup of yak butter tea. I know that there are low carbers out there who seldomly drink coffee and would like the same blend but replacing coffee with a good substitute.  I looked at one or two recipes online, then tweaked them to my liking. Hope you like my recipe!  This is perfect for those cold winter days!

If you are unable to locate Kerrygold butter, any good quality grass fed butter will do.  As long as its unsalted, it will be fine :) This recipe makes two mugs of low carb hot chocolate.
