This is quite possible the easiest and cheapest and best option for Chocolate Milk.  I am talking BEST chocolate milk I have had.  Granted, I have only ever had the stuff from the grocery store.  But its WAAAAYYYYY better than that. :)

Homemade Chocolate Milke! ~ Cheap, Easy, and Delicious!

Not only is it only four ingredients, but you can customize the ingredients to fit your diet!  I love full on sugar, but tend to try and make things healthier for my kids.  So I used my new favorite cocoa, Lake Champlain Organic Cocoa.  The flavor is great!

    I am pregnant and craving chocolate milk. Found this gem of a recipe, and I am in heaven as much as anyone experiencing morning sickness can experience heaven. I made it with organic milk and raw sugar, and I can’t wait to make it for my chocoholic lactose-intolerant hubby with almond milk. Thank you thank you thank you for this recipe!

    I was thinking about making this for my 3 year-old but I’m worrying about the levels of caffeine in the cocoa powder. Do you have any info on that? Thanks!

        Amanda, you are a CLASS ACT! Your response to the VERY UNCALLED FOR and downright RUDE comment, was not only spot on, but maybe it will rub off on…….someone! LOL!

        There is nothing wrong with not caring for a recipe. But there is a right way and a wrong way, to articulate that. The poster could simply have said, “I didn’t care for it.”

        Anyway, kudos to YOU! Classy lady!

    Hi! I LOVE chocolate milk !:D And i’m so excited to try this soon! (when i’m not lazy and purchase the ingredients at the shop that is) thx! but how much drops of vanilla extract do you add? I always makes those mistakes easily :[

  5. Lauren says

    Yes. Yes. Yes. This is the greatest recipe ever. Why didn’t I think of this? Almond milk and chocolate are a match made in heaven!

    definitely make sure you use a blender. doesn’t quite work as expected with a cup and a spoon! you’ll end up with a mixture that’s mostly cocoa powder on top, and sugar milk on bottom

    This morning I was craving chocolate milk but didn’t have the syrup. Then I found your website. I made it and it tastes so much better. I’ll never go back to the syrup! Thanks.

    It looks very different from what the picture looks like, anyways i made it and it has no flavor… Maybe it was becasue my mom only put in half the amount if ingredients… But its still very creamy and i would expect this to be served at a luxerious resturant

  9. Dani says

    I’m 15 and just made this- I ended up doubling the sugar (I have a ridiculous sweet-tooth) and actually added a little cinnimon to it! Yum!

    My blender was far away on top of the fridge so I dumped all the ingredients into a glass jar about the size of what I wanted to drink, made sure the lid was on tight, and shook it like a polaroid picture. I’m sure the blended version would turn out more evenly-mixed, but I like chocolate clumps, and I like how doing it in a jar means it’s ready to drink!

    I love how you said it would last in the fridge, it lasted about 45 seconds before the husband and kids had drunk it up and I was mixing up more! I did use 3T of the powdered sugar but otherwise, the exact same. LOVE it!!

  12. Mike says

    Made this today and liked it very much, I used to drink a half gallon a day of store bought chocolate milk and gained a lot of weight, I’m hoping now I can at least drink this a few times a week without gaining weight. I used Splenda and I’m telling you I can live without store chocolate milk now. Thank you for the awesome recipe.

  13. Diane says

    I agree that the cocoa flavor was a bit strong. I added at least a quarter cup of powdered sugar, so it tastes more like a milkshake… But that isn’t all that bad ;-) And anyway, my toddler likes it and we’re trying to up her milk intake, so everyone wins. Thanks!
