Most store-bought brands of chocolate milk are highly processed and unhealthy food choices. Sure, they contain some nutritional value. No doubt about it. They also contain sugar and corn starch, among other things, while also reducing the healthy fats. This takes away a substantial amount of the milk’s nutritional value.
The following recipe tastes as good as, if not better than chocolate milk – and it’s simple to make, cost-effective, and healthier. It contains no added sugars, and instead adds in healthy fats and the other amazing nutritional value found in heavy cream.
Combine the following in a shaker:
- 12 ounces of water
- 2 ounces of heavy cream
- 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein
This contains about 330 calories and makes a 16 ounce drink. This equates to 165 calories per 8 ounce serving which is equal to, or lower than the calories in chocolate milk – and without the sugar.
