Chocolate milk Mix recipe
Nesquik has been around for as long as I can remember. I remember drinking it as a kid and my kids drank it when they were small as well. It can be a “parents best friend” when they are desperately trying to get their kids to drink milk…ANY milk.
Unfortunately, chocolate milk has been under seige the last few years by people complaining of too much sugar. I’m not encouraging the drinking of chocolate milk on a regular basis…but for an occasional treat…it’s a pretty good choice as far as “snack foods” go, especially when you consider studies that show a three-fourths of teens suffer from calcium deficiency.
And if you’re making your own out of 3 simple ingredients you already probably have in your pantry, you know exactly what you’re drinking.
So here’s to a chocolate milk comeback! (within reason) :-)
Homemade Nesquik Recipe
2/3 C Sugar
1/3 C Cocoa
Pinch of salt
Combine the three ingredients and store in a sealed container. That’s it! Crazy easy huh?? (I ended up tripling the recipe because I knew the single batch wasn’t going to last long in this house!)
FYI…I added about two tablespoons to this pint-sized mason jar…but I would add to your taste. I found you need a lot less than the commercial stuff!
Thanks to Sarah at for sharing this homemade version of a childhood favorite AND for sharing a GREAT TIP for getting it to dissolve all the way in the cold milk.
One of the drawbacks to making chocolate milk with Nesquik is getting a smooth consistency. The powder tends to not want to “melt” in COLD milk. (Pet Peeve #487). Sarah suggests putting a little bit of hot water (I just got it from the tap) in the bottom of a cup…adding the powder…swirling it or stirring it for a few seconds…and THEN adding the cold milk.
So I gave it a go and it worked brilliantly! Result: perfectly smooth, creamy and cold chocolate milk made from scratch!
Had No. 2 son give it a taste test and he gave it a very positive review! (Especially the “smooth” part.) Then decided to do a taste test of my own…cuz momma needs a treat every now and then too! :-)
I also gave it TWO THUMBS UP! Really tasty!
Of course it would also make a good hot cocoa….but I refuse to think about winter yet! :-)
