Top 3 favorite beverages: hot tea, sparkling water and duh! Chocolate milk! I order it from Starbucks all the time and usually walk away feeling like a five-year old. But then I get over it because I have a delicious chocolatey drink to consume.
I’m calling this fancy chocolate milk because well, it has a party hat on. But also because it’s homemade – no processed syrups here! It’s essentially like making hot cocoa from scratch. Laura (sister) tuned me on to it and I’m really grateful she did. It’s makes the milk creamier and has a more rich chocolate taste than typical chocolate syrup. I’m not anti-processed syrup or anything, but it’s nice to have options.
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tsbp sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- nice pinch of sea salt
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp milk
- Measure cocoa powder, sugar, vanilla + salt into a microwavable glass. Add 2 tbsp milk and stir with a mini whisk. You don’t have to use a mini whisk but it will be a huge help in minimizing any lumps of the cocoa mixture. It comes in handy for matcha too.
- Microwave for 20 seconds. Whisk vigorously again till mixture forms a smooth paste. Add 1 cup milk, stir. Add ice + whipped cream if you feel like it. Enjoy!
