Dear MJ
Although cacao powder contains less fat (21,7g/100g) than milk chocolate for example (30,6g/100g), it is still basically a high fat food. If you only have 1 tablespoon (16g) which contains 3,3g of fat with fat-free milk (0,3g fat/100 ml) then it should not affect your gallbladder too much. However, if you find that you feel nauseous after drinking cacao, then you will have to cut it out.
Best regards
