    How to make cocoa powder mix into cold milk

    Shop Now
    Okay, so I long ago developed a simple, natural, sugarless hot cocoa mix for a young family member. Efforts are being made to change his diet, but it is slow going. Anyway, he LOVES cold chocolate milk (he gets whole, raw milk these days). But my mixture of xylitol and cocoa powder does not mix worth a hill of beans in cold milk. How might I improve the mixture? Please don't say to just remove chocolate milk from his diet. I don't have that authority, and he will be consuming sugar/aspartame/splenda/ who-knows-what-else unless I can come up with an alternative.

    mix the cocoa with 1 or 2 tablespoons of hot tap water in the cup FIRST, let cool a little, then add the milk. You could even premake the chocolate 'syrup' and add it to milk as needed.

    Go to Walmart. Buy blender bottle. Seriously, they're amazing. If you don't have access to blender bottles, toss into blender & blend until smooth.

    ^^ What dr bork said, I make chocolate milk for my granddaughter using fresh made almond or coconut milk and adding cocoa and stevia into the blender. She loves it

    Why was I not informed of this? Next you'll be telling me I can get sliced bread.

    If you shop in Waitrose in the UK you can buy any loaf from the bakery or shelves and ask them to slice it for you free of charge.
