One of my favorite drinks as a kid was chocolate milk. All kids love chocolate milk and once they get a little older and understand that there's actually a chocolatey syrup that you can put in your milk and make it so much more delicious!
Here is a recipe that has no refined sugars, is great to mix with a small cold glass of organic milk (a great grass-fed brand is Nature's Way).
1/2 C cocoa powder
1/4 C pure maple syrup
1/3 C water
1/2 TSP vanilla extract
- over med heat, mix water and maple syrup in small stainless steel saucepan
- once heated, turn to low
- whisk in cocoa powder
- remove from heat
- add vanilla
- let cool in small bowl or mason jar
