One of the great ways we’re enjoying our raw goat milk is to make chocolate milk. You can use any natural sweetener you’d like – I think honey would be wonderful, as would maple syrup. But I better stop talking about those. I’m using whole dates for the sweeteners, since the month of May is devoted to our Beyond Sugar Challenge, where we avoid the use of concentrated sweeteners, natural or refined. This chocolate milk is really good! Adjust the number of dates for your desired sweetness. This milk is on the not-too-sweet side, just how we like it.
makes about 7 cups
- 3 cups raw milk
- 10 whole dates, pitted
- 3 tablespoons good quality cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 6 to 8 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in blender container or Vita-Mix wet container. Blend on high until smooth. Pour into cups and enjoy!
