    I thought this was great — followed the recipe exactly, then added a pinch of salt and both my husband and I loved it. I originally dont like really sweet things (most U.S sweets) so I personally thought that the sweetness was spot-on.

    Hi! This looks great. I will make it tomorrow. Why does it foam? Is it the icing sugar? Thanks 🙂

    For a gallon of chocolate milk, use 8 tbsp. Cocoa, 1/4 cup Pyure stevia (the more concentrated stuff, not the baking blend) dissolve in a bit of hot water. I than dumped this into a jug of raw milk fresh from my family farm. Yum! Guilt free too!

    I made this and it was soooooo delicious. thanks.

    this recipe is HORRIBLE. it tastes nothing like store-bought chocolate milk. it’s horribly bitter and tasteless. find another recipe! beware! all of these people that enjoy this are crazy. lol

      Or, maybe people who like it enjoy something that is REAL ingredients. I am not trying to replicate the heavy chemical flavor of store bought chocolate milk, I am sharing a recipe that is real.

        HI! Thanks for sharing. Could I replace the powdered sugar for raw honey?

          I just tried it with the same amount of honey instead of sugar. Came out great! The kids loved it.

        Your recipe was amazing dear. I love it and enjoyed it a lot. Don’t pay attention to negative comments.

        Simple and delightful!

      Of course it doesnt taste like store bought chocolate milk, it has no artificial ingredients or high fructose corn syrup. I’m bet you hate the taste of maple syrup too. and use pancake syrup (high fructose corn syrup) instead

    I actually quite loved this! Just made a batch. I put in I think about another big spoonful of powdered sugar because I didn’t feel like it was sweet enough. I don’t have a blender, so I used an electric whisk and sifted the powder ingredients before I started mixing. The only drawback is that you can’t drink it right away becasue of the foam, haha, So I had to wait for the goodness to settle!

      Thought it was great! I’d probably add a little more sugar for my own personal taste (I’m a big fan of the store bought kind) but otherwise you cannot beat the ease of this recipe. I won’t buy Store bought again.

    This look so yummy. I wanna try this recipe in my kitchen

    Ahhh!! Looks delicious!!! I will make it as soon as I wake up.

    YUM. I loooooove this! I’ve had a craving for chocolate milk for a few days and this really hit the spot! I think I might add some more sugar next time because I have such a sweet tooth but otherwise, this is excellent!!!!

    Thank you for this recipe. I made it as posted and it was perfect for my tastes. After reading the comments I will try it with honey, maybe the salt addition or almond extract. I’ve been wanting chocolate milk after my workouts and this fits…not too sweet like all storebought chocolate milk.

    Wow! kids love it!
    I went with manuka honey straight from the farm.
    Winning…thank you.

    I used Special Dark Chocolate powder and it came out great! Next time I will probably add another scoop of the powdered sugar and whole milk just to help add a thickness and more sweetness!

    This chocolate milk is delicious I never thought about adding powered sugar before. I will never buy store bought again. Thank you.😊

    This chocolate 🍫 milk was so good . I used almond milk instead of cows and it was so 👍.

    That was a good recipe,I left out the vanilla and still tasted good. Thanks

    Add a tsp of cornstarch disolved in a tbs of warm water. This thickens it.

    Thank you for the delicious recepie … I love it waiting for more …

    Thank you!

    Do not trust the negatives, homemade is best and more healthy, all junk in stores are loaded with chemicals that can hurt you, it probably wont taste the same, but it should still be good, my family buys organic and even organic m and ms candy tastes exactly like the real thing. Heres my recipe of chocolate milk if you want, 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1/8 tsp butter, 3 tsp of powdered sugar, and a literal cup of milk, blend it, and it tastes just like hersheys chocolate syrup, well maybe for me.

    Can I skip the powder sugar? Will it still be okay and taste good??

    Don't Pass on Dessert!
