Cacao drink

I wanted to ask if according to the Rosedale diet this would be allowed.

I really enjoy drinking chocolate and I'm currently taking one or two times per day (in the morning and in the night) this preparation:

- 0,25 liters of unsweetened coconut-rice milk (carbohydrates: 12.5g, of which 6.5g sugars, per 100ml)
- 10-15g of cocoa pulver (100% raw organic). Carbohydrates: 19g, of which 4g sugars, per 100g.
- A nibble of cinnamon
- A nibble of vanilla

This is my last whim, as I already cut out pasta, rice, potatoes, yams, legumes, most of the fruit, dairy, ...

Thanks to the people that maintain and support this website,

    The cacao powder has 7g of saturated fat per 100g

    General Rule: carbohydrates minus any fiber equals sugar

    • example:

    25g carbohydrates,
    minus 10g fiber,
    equals 15g sugar

    Any sugar/glucose that may be required by the body can be manufactured from the protein and healthy fat we eat.

    Personally I would do without the cacao drink, the fruit and dairy you mention.
