Choc Zero has gone NUTS with the biggest sale of the year!

When I first switched to Keto, I really missed having a sugary treat at the end of the day. 8pm would roll around and I would start craving chocolate. I quickly realized that I needed to find a Keto sweet that wouldn’t mess up my hard work, but would still feel like a treat at the end of the day. That’s when I found Choc Zero!!

Now at the end of a long day, I put on my favorite show and enjoy some of their amazing Keto Chocolate, guilt free!

Every month, I make a big order from Choc Zero. I love their Keto Bark (especially Dark Chocolate with Hazlenut). I even ordered a bunch to my parents house over the holidays, so I would have a Keto friendly dessert while they enjoyed their holiday favorites.

Choc Zero Squares- My Travel Buddy


milk choc zero jen

I am always on a plane to somewhere it feels like. Between traveling to my daughter’s volleyball tournaments and traveling for work, I spend a lot of time in the air and in hotels. Those of you who are on the road a lot know that packing your own snacks is KEY! Guess what my favorite travel snack is?! 🍫❤️ CHOC ZERO!

Choc Zero Squares and Choc Zero Bark is the best stuff ever!!! I don't know about you, but being in an airport makes me want to:

a) spend way too much money on magazines

b) eat candy (sometimes those old habits die hard)

Luckily, I have Choc Zero! It is my favorite Keto sweet treat, they are delicious and individually packaged to put that sweet tooth to rest.

Choc Zero- Keto Chocolate Syrup

Choc Zero's Chocolate Syrup is Delectable! 

I love Choc Zero's Keto Bark! It is a perfect treat after a long day! I just learned that Choc Zero's Chocolate Syrup is the exact same chocolate they use to make the keto bark, they just put it into the bottle instead of making bark! 

Put this syrup on pancakes, keto cakes, or even just fruit. I love dipping strawberries into this syrup! 

Choc Zero Chocolate syrup is back in stock and ready to be sent right to your door! 

Choc Zero Chocolate Syrup has no preservatives, no sugar alcohols, and only 5 ingredients!

Yep 5 ingredients!!!

  • Liquid vegetable fiber,

  • unsweetened chocolate

  • cocoa butter

  • monk fruit extract,

  • natural chocolate liquor.

It’s vegan and Soy and Gluten Free!

This syrup has a thick fudge like consistency! You can drizzle it over low carb ice cream and bake it into Keto Treats! I swear, I could just eat it right off of a spoon!

If you want it a little thinner, run the bottle over some warm water. Don’t worry it will thicken right back up when you put it in the fridge.

You really can’t go wrong with this low carb Chocolate Syrup. What ever you put it on is going to be delicious! But hurry, Choc Zero products sell out quickly. They will be restocked (every friday at 5pm) but my suggestion is to snag them up any time they are in stock so you never run out! :)

Choc Zero Restocks Every Friday

Have you tried to buy Choc Zero chocolate only to find that they are sold out?

This happens quite a bit. Their chocolate and syrups are so good that they just can’t keep them on the shelves.

But you may not know that Choc Zero Restocks their online store every Friday at 5pm! 

Choc Zero is an amazing little company that is in the middle of becoming an amazing big company. They can only restock a certain amount of product at a time right now. So If you are trying to buy chocolate in the middle of the week, You may have a limited selection. If you are running low on their amazing syrups, chocolate bark, or chocolate squares, set an alert of Friday at 5pm. I do and I always buy a little of my favorites so I never run out.  

All Things Keto Pancakes

When I say that I have made Keto Pancakes 1 million times, I’m only slightly exaggerating. My daughter loves this recipe and after heeding her request for these pancakes countless times, I think its safe to say we are now experts on Keto Pancakes. We even make this recipe on Christmas Morning and decorate them like reindeers.

It all started with one Recipe, Cream Cheese and Coconut Flour Pancakes. I started experimenting with Keto Pancakes back in the beginning of 2017 and I liked this recipe so much I included it in my first cookbook, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook.

This cream cheese and coconut flour recipe makes soft and fluffy pancakes that taste and feel almost exactly like the real thing. I top them with Vital Farms grass fed butter and sugar-free maple syrup. They have 18g of protein in each serving and only 8g of net carbs, meaning you can fit these pancakes nicely into your macros with out having to worry.

After solidifying this basic recipe, I started to play with different variations. I made a Pancake Cake that can be baked in the oven instead of on the griddle. I added cinnamon and vanilla extract, chocolate chips (KNOW Foods has some great low-carb ones), and different Sugar Free Syrups from Choc Zero. They have more flavors of sugar free syrups than you could even imagine, everything from Maple Pecan to Peppermint.

I even tried out Bulletproof Hot Chocolate in this Chocolate Pancake Recipe and I have to say, It was delicious!

For my second book, The Big Book of Keto, I settled on a Pumpkin Pancakes Recipe. To this day, It is still my favorite way to enjoy Keto Pancakes. There is something so warm and comforting about the taste of Pumpkin. I love adding Choc Zero’s Caramel Syrup to this recipe. (Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is!)

Also included in The Big Book of Keto is this Blueberry-Lemon Cake.

This recipe is kind of a twist on my Pancake Cake recipe from my first book but with lemon zest and blueberries. I LOVE blueberries and If you are a big lemon lover you can add even more zest! You can even make mini cakes! Perfect for dessert, breakfast or brunch!

This Keto Pancake batter can also make waffles. One of the things I love about waffles, besides their perfect butter holding ability, is that you can keep left overs. Pancakes don’t reheat well, but waffles do. You can even freeze them and then reheat them in the toaster. If you are really in the mood to get crazy, try making a grilled cheese sandwich with left over keto waffles. I promise you won’t regret it.

Keto Recipe: Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie


My grown up blender!

My grown up blender!

I finally got a grown up blender!

I’ve been living this whole time with the cheapest blender available and a super tiny food processor. Finally I decided it was time to be a real adult and now I have a nice big food processor and super amazing Blendtec blender!

I was amazed at the power in this blender and it is super easy to use! The first thing I decided to make was a Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie for my daughter and I! It’s a take on a recipe I have in my second cookbook, The Big Book of Keto, but it’s a little different. It is such a yummy treat or meal.

These syrups go great on everything. With only 1g of net carbs, Choc Zero’s Honest Syrups pack the sweet punch you crave with out any of the sugar. They use only natural flavoring and monk fruit to flavor their low carb syrups. I like to put them on breakfast foods, Keto Ice Cream, Cookies, and even my favorite J and S Sweets! These Keto maple donuts were already good! Add some chocolate syrup to take them to the next level!


They have all sorts of different flavors. They have just restocked the Maple, Maple Pecan, Chocolate, Vanilla, Caramel, Strawberry, and Pumpkin Pie Syrups. Some of them are even 50 cents off! You can drizzle this syrup over Keto Cake, or make these Pumpkin Baby Bundts and top them off with the Maple Pecan syrup.

Choc Zero doesn’t produce a bunch of excess product. That means that they sell out quite often and quickly. These syrups won’t stay in stock for very long, so order yours today.

Choc Zero’s Chocolate Squares are back in stock!!! After being whipped out by the Holiday rush, Choc Zero Squares are finally back in stock! They have Milk, 50 % Dark, and the 70% Dark now in stock. My personal favorite is the 70% Dark Chocolate. It is a little bitter but the coconut oil and sweetness of the monk fruit extract balance it out perfectly.

Choc Zero Squares are perfectly portioned to fulfill any sweet craving when ever and where ever it might occur. This is one of the emergency Keto treats I keep in my desk for particularly stressful days or particularly joyful occasions. There’s never a bad time for a little bit of keto chocolate.

My favorite thing about Choc Zero Squares is that you can melt them down and create your own chocolate treats. Drizzle melted chocolate on a Keto cookie. Make chocolate covered Berries. The possibilities are endless.

Just heat up a couple of squares in a glass bowl either in the microwave or over a pot of simmering water stirring as often as possible. If you get in a tight spot add a little coconut oil to get a smooth and glossy chocolate. Then use the melted chocolate to make your own Keto Chocolate Creation.

This keto chocolate is extremely popular and will sell out fast. So Don’t Wait. Order your Choc Zero Squares now and use the code KETOINTHECITY for 10% off of your entire order.
