Strawberry & Chocolate Milk Recipes with Delicious & Healthy Ingredient Swaps & Trades

Strawberry & Chocolate Milk

Strawberry & Chocolate Milk

 

The holidays are over & we are back to swapping and trading at the counters with new recipes.  My kids, like most, love chocolate milk & strawberry milk.  Over the years we have developed our own version of these drinks that allows us to be in control of the ingredients.  These are two popular & flavorful blends at my house that are often served with breakfast, weekend lunches or part of after school snacks.  And truth be told, I often make enough so that I can have a glass along with them.  Cheers to a New Year & new recipes to share…

 

Chocolate Milk  by Jodie Fitz

 1 cup ice

 1 cup low fat or fat free milk

 1 ½ tablespoons cocoa powder

 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 4 tablespoons honey (approximately ¼ cup)

 Add the ice, milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract & honey into a blender.  Blend the ingredients until the ice is fully crushed & the ingredients are well mixed. 

 Note:  You may have to stop half way through the blending process and scrape cocoa powder & honey from the sides with a spatula and then continue to blend the rest of the way.

 Honey:  You can decrease the honey if you decrease the cocoa powder, this will depend on your family’s taste buds. 

Almond Milk:  Give this blend a try with almond milk too, it’s one of our favorite ways to make it.

 Strawberry Milk by Jodie Fitz

 1 cup frozen fresh strawberries (no syrup added)

 1 cup low fat or fat free milk

 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 3 tablespoons honey

 Add the strawberries, milk, vanilla extract and honey into a blender.  Blend the ingredients until the strawberries are fully crushed and mixed thoroughly into the recipe. 

 Note:  Occasionally you may have to stop the blending process mid-way through to scrape the honey from the sides and then continue the process. 

 * Both recipes yield approximately two 8 oz. – 10oz. servings.

  1. You had me at chocolate. I saw your post on a linky party and had to come to see the recipe. Yummy!!! I will be sure to jot this one down since its strawberry season here in Florida. Thanks for sharing

  2. Good healthy recipe, but the only thing I would change is using organic milk or raw milk – I don’t think the conventional processed milk with all the pasteurization, hormones, antibiotics is healthy in any way, but just my opinion. Thanks so much for sharing a great alternative to the processed flavoring that you buy.. Visiting from Fantastic Friday Link Up.

    1. I use the organic as well :)! I used to have our milk delivered…but for some reason it didn’t work out…I don’t remember the details, but it was fun while we did.

  3. I love your Chocolate Milk and your swaps. Thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and wishing you abundant blessings in 2014!
