In our humble opinion, those little cartons of chocolate milk at lunch time were one of *the best* things about elementary school. As a kid, that was 8-12oz of pure bliss that took any soggy, ambiguous cafeteria meal to the next level. As an adult, it sounds more like a blood sugar "crash and burn" waiting to happen. 

Well, good news—it’s time for chocolate milk to grow up, and all it takes is a little JOI. Our chocolate milk made with JOI 100% almond or cashew nutbase and unsweetened cocoa powder is vegan, refined sugar free, completely customizable, and guaranteed to drum up guilt-free childhood nostalgia.

And, with a healthy blend of plant-based fiber, protein, and healthy fat, it’s also an outstanding addition to your post-workout recovery routine.

Like it icy and "frozen" instead?  See how to make your favorite "frozen hot chocolate" at the note below!  (Hint:  whipped cream and extra syrup are a must!)

Yields 2 servings

Ingredients:

2 cups water
4 Tablespoons JOI almond or cashew plant base 
1 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 Tablespoons sweetener of choice, such as date syrup (we love Joolie's Cocoa Date Syrup!), honey, maple syrup or agave (or adapt to taste)
1/1 teaspoon vanilla
a pinch of salt

Instructions:

Add all ingredients to blender & blend for 30 seconds on medium high.  Chill or serve over ice for a cold milk, or warm gently in a small saucepan over medium heat for hot chocolate.

Frozen Hot Chocolate or Chocolate "Frappe":

On a hot day, nothing satisfies like an icy drink...and make it chocolate for the "win"!  To transform your chocolate milk into a "frappe", simply substitute half of the measure of water with icy cubes.  Yep, that's it.   For the best consistency, blend all the ingredients (EXCEPT the ice!!) together for 30 seconds, then add the ice and blend to the desired consistency...from chunky to slushy, you've go this!

Feeling indulgent?  Add some whipped topping and an extra squirt of syrup to top it off!
