And if you need another great reason to make this recipe…it’s about half the cost of buying a container of Nesquick at the store!! So, make sure to keep a batch of this on hand!

Just combine all ingredients in an air tight jar (I used a ball jar) and shake it until everything is mixed together well.

That’s really it! Easy peasey!! I used a pint sized ball jar and it filled it about 1/2 full…plenty of room if you would like to double the batch. My kids love this stuff so much, I’ve been known to even triple the recipe!

When you are ready to make a glass of chocolate milk. Just add 2 Tablespoons of the mix to a glass and about 2 Tablespoons of warm water…I know this part seems a little strange, but when you are using natural cocoa powder it won’t fully dissolve in a glass of cold milk. And no body likes chunky chocolate milk…well, no one I know anyway. By using warm water first the mix should fully dissolve and make a perfectly smooth glass of delight! Then you just add 1 cup of cold milk and stir.

    I made this recipe right away and my daughter gave it a huge thumbs up. She wanted a second glass. If that isn’t a glowing review I don’t know what is! ? thanks

      Glad you liked your daughter liked it! My daughter also gave it a big thumbs up!

      • Michelle says:

        Ah ha!! I wondered how you were going to get the cocoa to dissolve without heating the milk!! Good thinking! Have tried this for years and just ended up boiling the cocoa and sugar in water to make a chocolate syrup rather than “Nesquik” powder. Thank you–my kids thank you too! haha

    Delicious! Even with only one tablespoon per glass, much more flavor than with packaged mix. Thanks for posting.
