Healthy Chocolate Milk Recipe

Healthy Chocolate Milk RecipeThis probably isn’t breaking news to you, but the problem with most chocolate milk is it’s high in sugar, calories, and processed ingredients. But I happen to love chocolate milk. And that’s why I created this healthy chocolate milk recipe.

This one was pretty easy too. I used some reduced fat organic milk (you can use skim to reduce the calories even more … I prefer a little more creaminess). The key to this healthy chocolate milk though is getting some good raw cocoa powder. I prefer Navitas Naturals. Toss in some Truvia (a plant-based sugar substitute) and that’s all you need.

You can spruce it up with cinnamon, nutmeg, peanut butter, or coffee but it’s pretty darn good as-is.

And best of all, the final damage is only 130 calories and 3 grams of fat. Compare that to 200-300 calories, over 30 grams of sugar, and 5 grams of saturated fat for the average glass of chocolate milk! And this recipe even has some healthy fiber due to the better-for-you real cocoa powder.

Here’s the healthy chocolate milk recipe … enjoy.
