I rarely purchase chocolate milk or mixes for the kids. Not only is it expensive, I can’t pronounce everything in the ingredient list. Here is a simple, less expensive, less processed alternative. And it tastes just as yummy, if not better than the popular prepackaged version.
In the jar you are planning on storing this in; alternate ingredients-this was 4 batches and fits perfectly into a quart mason jar. Close the lid tightly and shake.
To make chocolate milk:
Add 1 heaping Tbsp to a couple Tbsp of hot tap water to dissolve (cocoa powder does not dissolve well in cold liquid). Add to 8 ounces of milk.
A canister of name brand costs an average of $5 making it about $.13 per serving. This homemade version is around $0.07 per serving. Half the price, far less preservatives, and less than 2 minutes to make.
