Homemade chocolate milk mix is easy to make and relies on real food ingredients. These simple, healthy ingredients make my homemade chocolate milk mix taste like a gourmet drink when mixed with your favorite animal milk, nut milk, or – my favorite – coconut milk.

I have a confession.  Before we began our real food journey, my children drank chocolate milk made with vitamin-enriched chocolate powder almost every day.  I was happy that they were getting vitamins and “X% less sugar than other brands” and they were happily addicted to the sugar and other ingredients in the mix.

Like many moms, I had no idea that store-bought chocolate milk mix was not really as healthy as its advertising claimed. Of course, my eyes are open now and I know that I can make a healthier version at home.

After we switched to a real food diet, I slowly weaned them off of the pre-made chocolate mix.  Eventually, I created my own homemade chocolate milk mix that contains three simple ingredients and no synthetic vitamins, refined sugar or salt, or artificial flavors.

The sweetener I use in this homemade chocolate milk mix is coconut sugar. You can also use sucanat, maple sugar, or other natural (dry) sweetener. Of course, just because we’re using a sugar that still has its nutrients intact we can’t consume it with abandon. Your total ‘sweet’ intake should only be about 5% of your total food consumption.

This recipe can also be used for hot cocoa or as a topping to dust on yogurt, as well.

Ingredients
2 cups coconut sugar
2/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

Combine the coconut sugar, cocoa powder, and salt in a food processor.

Store in an airtight container.

1 tbsp of mix per 8 ozs of milk, more or less to taste, of course.
