Want chocolate but without sugar? Today, I’m sharing the recipe for the most deliciously creamy, sugar-free milk chocolate for acne prone skin.
You may have tried and tested the recipe for my basic ‘Sugar-Spike Free Raw Chocolate‘ but today, I’m sharing the recipe for the most deliciously creamy, sugar free chocolate that contains NO refined sugar or natural syrups like maple or honey and NO dairy! It’s absolutely divine and I guarantee that if you were blindfold tested with this stuff you’d think it was milk chocolate – when in fact it’s super healthy and nutritious!

Sugar free ‘Dairy Milk’ chocolate for acne prone skin
This milk chocolate is only sweetened with a blend of stevia and yacon – two natural sweeteners that have a GI of 0 and 1 (for reference, table sugar has a GI of 65, maple syrup 54, honey 50 and coconut palm sugar has a GI of 35, see the full list here). Stevia has a liquoricey after-taste – not a flavour I was keen to incorporate into my recipe! However, I’ve found that NuNaturals Liquid Stevia doesn’t have that same bitter after-taste that many other brands do. Using both NuNaturals Liquid Stevia and Yacon Syrup provide the perfect combination of sweetness with no hint of a bitter after taste.

Now for the game-changer. Are you ready?
Thanks to this recipe I now know that raw chocolate doesn’t have to taste bitter and “healthy” and lack the creaminess of the milk chocolate we all love(d) and miss! I used to be milk chocolate obsessed and found it really difficult to make the switch over to 60%, then 75%, then 85% then finally raw dark chocolate! I recently discovered that nut butters, particularly hazelnut and macadamia can totally transform your raw chocolate recipes!

I’m sure this recipe would work for all types of nut butters but I recommend not overdoing it on the nut front as they can contain high amounts of omega-6 which can increase inflammation in the body. Macadamia nuts are the best option for those struggling with chronic inflammation.
