Hey there everyone. It's been a few weeks longer than I like to go before updating my blog, but with homeschooling in full swing and a bunch of other "life" stuff, I just haven't had the time to update. You will be happy to know that in my mind I have about 20 posts floating around...now just to get them on the computer right? So just a quick recipe today. My kiddos love chocolate milk...okay the hubs and I love it to, but I just cringe watching chocolate milk being made with syrup from a bottle. It is just loaded with all kinds of ingredients that aren't that great for us. I DO NOT claim to know everything about health food, but making changes here and there really does help in the long run. This recipe is loosely adapted from a recipe on the Internet, but I changed up the ingredients to suit our taste. Give it a try. No fancy or weird ingredients needed. I Love chocolate and if I say it's good....IT IS GOOD!
You will need:
4 Cups of milk
3 Tab. of cocoa powder
4 Tab. of PURE maple syrup...not the fake stuff!
1 tsp. of vanilla
Add all these ingredients to your blender and mix until thoroughly combined. Serve right away or refrigerate. If you dont' use it right away you will have to mix/shake it up again before you serve. It kind of separates, but don't worry, it still taste great! This is chocolate milk you don't have to feel guilty about!
