The BEST Chocolate Almond Milk

Chocolate milk should always be thick, creamy, and above all, chocolatey.

The BEST Chocolate Almond Milk | spachethespatula.com #recipe #veganMost recipes I have found for chocolate almond milk are sorely lacking in all three categories. They’re usually thin, maybe a little chocolatey, but they can no way compare to chocolate cow milk. This recipe, though, it totally can!

Do you want to know what the secret is? A blend of cocoa powder, and unsweetened chocolate bar. Yep, I think you need both to provide the right chocolatey richness and creaminess. I’ve sweetened it with agave syrup, because I like it best for nut milks, but feel free to swap it for maple syrup, honey, or something else if those are more your style.

Drink it on its own. Heat it up and top it with whipped cream (or coconut cream for vegan option!)… boom—instant hot cocoa. Yesterday, I made a smoothie with it + strawberry + blueberries and topped with coconut. It was phenomenal. So many possibilities… I’m thinking about using it in my cereal because that sounds terribly awesome.

Plus, it’s so easy to make and only has 5 ingredients (including water!). Does it get any better than this?

The BEST Chocolate Almond Milk

The BEST Chocolate Almond Milk

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4 cups water
  • 5 tbsp agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 oz. unsweetened chocolate, chopped

Instructions

  1. Add almonds to a bowl and pour the water over top. Let soak overnight.
  2. The next day, add the soaked almonds, and the water they were soaking in, to the container of your blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients and blend until perfectly creamy. Taste, and add more sweetener if you desire.
  4. Pour the milk through a fine mesh sieve. Push on the solids with a rubber spatula to get all of the liquid out. Discard solids.
  5. Shake or stir before serving!

Notes

The milk should keep for about a week or two in the fridge.

I used my Vitamix for this recipe which blends things perfectly smooth in next to no time. You may have a bit more trouble with a regular blender, but if you chop your chocolate finer, it should make it much simpler!
