Snuggle up with this beauty! My low FODMAP Mexican hot chocolate is decadent. It’s comforting with warming hints of cinnamon and chilli. AND it’s the BEST hot chocolate you’ll have this holiday season.
Just FYI this Mexican Hot Chocolate isn't super spicy, however if chilli is a trigger for you, then you can leave it out. The hot chocolate mixture will still be lovely.
Check that the cornflour (corn starch) is made from maize and not wheat.
Choose a dark chocolate that doesn't contain inulin or high FODMAP sweeteners like honey, high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup or fructose. Also avoid dark chocolate that contains high FODMAP fruit or nuts.
Check your dried chilli flakes do not contain onion or garlic powder.
Herbs and spices are naturally gluten free, however they can become contaminated during manufacturing processes. If you are highly sensitive to gluten, check the dried herbs and spices do not contain a warning for trace gluten. If you are just on the low FODMAP diet you do not need to worry about this.
