I’ve never been able to give up my sweet tooth in all my years of low carbing. When I was pregnant I craved chocolate milk – well at least I *think* I it was a pregnancy craving, but it may just have been a reaction to stopping low carbing, and that was the first thing that I wanted a LOT of. Yes, even before bread, pasta, and candy!
I don’t often make chocolate milk because it is so difficult from a low carb point of view. But it occurred to me that if I made up a big batch of it, I might be way more likely to drink some. My recipe for the powder is simple: just two ingredients!
Mix 2 teaspoons of the powder with 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. 2 teaspoons of this chocolate milk mix contains 4.2g net carbs – and of course that’s from using xylitol – if you prefer a lower carb sweetener you could reduce this even further. A cup of the almond milk doesn’t contain any carbs – so this makes for a pretty low carb drink!
Two ways to make it: Shake it up or blend it. To shake, add everything to a cup or bottle with a lid, shake until mixed. To blend, add ingredients to a cup and use a stick immersion blender to mix it together. This is my favorite method!
As you can see I made a cute label for my chocolate mix jar – just to make sure no-one else in my house got their hands on it!
