VIDEO: Quench your thirst with chocolate milk

To celebrate National chocolate milkshake day, there are some cool and awesome ways to make the chocolaty treat at home or increase the sweetness.

Remember Nesquik? It was a part of every South African’s childhood and a staple drink in all households. It provided delicious and thirst quenching chocolate milk. But just in case you don’t have any right now here is an equally delicious alternative: Homemade Nesquik  chocolate milk

RECIPE:

  • ⅔ Cup Sugar
  • ⅓ Cup Cocoa Powder
  • Pinch of salt

METHOD

  1. Combine all ingredients. I threw all 3 in a mini food processor and mixed for a minute or two.
  2. Store in a sealed container.
  3. Plan on 1-2 tablespoons (to taste) chocolate milk mix to the milk.
  4. When making a glass of chocolate milk, stir powder mix into 1 – 2 tablespoon warm water to help dissolve sugar crystals.
  5. Add milk, stir and enjoy.
