Homemade Chocolate Milk and Other Flavored Milks

Chocolate Milk

Have you ever read the back of a chocolate milk carton? You will find things you have never heard of before. Preservatives, chemicals, sweeteners, all kinds of nasty stuff that you do not want going into your body or the body of your children. It is easy to make homemade chocolate milk, I used to do it all the time at my grandma’s house. Here’s the simple, 4 ingredient recipe:


  • 1/4 cup very hot tap water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (I use coconut palm sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon baker’s cocoa
  • whole milk



  1. Pour the hot water into a glass.
  2. Mix the cocoa and sugar into the hot water until dissolved.
  3. Finish filling up the glass with milk and stir


This chocolate milk tastes better than any you will squirt out of a plastic bottle and I guarantee it is healthier.

Have you ever thought of making other flavors of milk besides chocolate?  It is easy to do, and also unique and yummy.  Just put the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and then refrigerate until cold.

Peach Milk

  • 1 ripe fresh peach, peeled and pitted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups milk

Peanut Butter Milk

Banana Milk

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups milk

Cherry Milk


Caramel Milk

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 4 cups milk
  1. Combine sugar and 1 cup of water on high heat.
  2. Stir until sugar turns dark brown
  3. Add the rest of the water and stir till combined and remove from heat
  4. Wisk 1 cup of syrup with four cups of milk.
  5.  Refrigerate for at least one hour before serving


I think that you will find that your family will love these milks and will happily drink whenever you fix them.  You can just smile, knowing they are as healthy as they are tasty!
