A lovely quick drink; a perfect treat to take out for the kids. Put it in the flask as a pick me up for out and about. Have it hot or cold with added ice-cubes!
we love chocolate milk in our family. There are many ready made varieties here in the UK. However none of them are sugar free. So if you want one that is – you still have to make it yourself and here is the recipe!
I use less cocoa powder if making it for my little ones as cocoa has some caffeine in it!
3/4 mug of your favourite milk (rice, almond…)
1 or 2 tablespoons coconut cream (optional, but highly recommended, even by those not so keen on coconut)
11/2 tsp xylitol or to taste (or other sugar free sweetener)
Little boiling water – about 1 tablespoon
1 tsp cocoa powder
for Hot chocolate:
Heat the “milk”. Meanwhile disperse the cocoa in the boiling water. Add the coconut cream to the hot water and cocoa, (if using) give it a really good stir. Add the heated milk and sweeten to taste.
For chilled chocolate milk!
Disperse the cocoa in the boiling water. Add the coconut cream to the hot water (if using) stir it up. Add the chilled milk and sweeten to taste. Add ice-cubes if desired!
