Easy Homemade Chocolate Milk Syrup Recipe

Making my own chocolate syrup for milk was something that never crossed my mind until my neighbor mentioned she had made some that her son loves more than store bought.  I hate to say, but Davis is a little bit addicted to chocolate milk.  He has come a very long way with his gag reflex issues and we have found that almond milk works the best for him.  The only thing is he needs a little touch of chocolate syrup in order to drink it.

I found myself running low on chocolate syrup last week and thought I would try my hand at making my own.  The first batch was a total flop!  It was too bitter and Davis wanted nothing to do with it.  A few tweaks later and I had a chocolate syrup that he loves just as much as the store bought!  The best part?  There are only 3 ingredients!  Talk about knowing what is going into your child’s body.

So, if you have a family that loves chocolate milk, or just chocolate syrup in general, you need to give this recipe a go.

    Chocolate pudding is easy to make, too. My kids are gluten and dairy-free so I needed to find an safe option for them, but it works for anybody:
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2-1/3 cup powdered sugar
    2 TBSP cornstarch
    1 cup milk (we use coconut milk but you could use any type of milk)
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    Blend dry ingredients in a saucepan. Gradually add milk until combined. Whisking continuously over medium heat until bubbles form and liquid thickens (about 2 minutes). Cook for an additional minute. Be careful not to burn. Once pudding cools, stir in 1/2 tsp vanilla. Makes 2 servings.
