There is a new kid in town, and woosh, are they popular!
I’m sure this newly released product, a collaboration between Lewis Road Creamery and Whittakers chocolate, has been a marketers dream. Dubbed ‘liquid gold’ and a sell-out across the country, consumers cant get enough of this chocolate milk – despite the media widely reporting that there are 10 teaspoons of sugar in a serving!!
I’ve been making real hot chocolate forever … why use powder when you can melt chocolate into milk and drink it warm! It’s my best winter indulgence! So it wasnt too hard for me to figure out how to make chocolate milk… cold.
Kids love it. I think it tastes just like that perfect bottle above ^^ too!
So if you can’t get the real deal, here goes!
Get yourself 1 litre of REAL milk. That is, farmhouse milk (silver top), Lewis Rd Creamery milk, or raw milk with cream (yummy!).
Pour half into a saucepan and warm gently. Break up 1 block of Whittakers Creamy Milk (try and avoid the ‘one for the pot, one for the mouth’ if possible, but do allow yourself to sample a piece of two. You know, just to check it is ok :-P)
Use a spatula to use and make sure the chocolate doesnt catch on the bottom, add the remainder of the bottle, and then use a whisk to mix well (remember to keep on a low heat so it doesnt boil).
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
When it is chilled, it is ready… if you managed to leave it alone for that long!
I’m amazed that some people were shocked by the revelation of much sugar is in each bottle. Chocolate milk is a TREAT food, always has been, always will! But at least this way, it is REAL food.
So go on, enjoy and indulge… everything in moderation 🙂
