Dairy-Free Chocolate “Milk”

If you love chocolate milk, you’re in luck.

This “milk” is dairy-free and naturally sweetened with fruit, making it a guilt-free treat that you can enjoy anytime. It comes from the book, 100 Best Smoothies, Juices, and Healthy Snacks: Easy Recipes For Natural Energy & Weight Control the Healthy Way, by Emily von Euw.

Emily’s the blogger behind This Rawsome Vegan Life, which features decadent (yet healthy) raw food treats that are as pretty as they are tasty!

Her latest book features an abundance of recipes for delicious juices, smoothies, and healthy snacks, that are all easy to prepare and made with whole food ingredients. I’m drooling over her raw food treats, like Cocoa Oat Bars with Peanut Butter and Carob and Dark Chocolate Chip, Oat & Hemp Cookies, which would go perfectly with a cold glass of this Chocolate Mylk recipe below.

Thanks to Emily for letting me share it with you all!

The healthy recipe I would love to see next is for healthy Blondies.


    Detoxinista does have a recipe for flourless blondies on her website.

    Ayley "L"

    I’d love a savory snack that does not have bell peppers in it. I also have a new Vitamix and would love some recipes for smoothies so this book would be wonderful. Thank you for your healthy recipes! Also, it was difficult to find the comment button on my smartphone even in desktop view, so I pressed reply to an already posted comment. I hope I am still in the running for the giveaway!


looks tasty! Would love To see another toddler recipe next time. Thank you!

Kristy E.

Would love to see a nut free double chocolate chip cookie recipe. Thank you!


High protein lunches!!


Thank you for sharing! I would love to see healthy vegan butter tarts!


I had a food processor for Christmas so now I can make so many of your recipes that I couldn’t make before that I don’t really need a new one. But if I had to say something, I would like to see a recipe with gelatin.

Thanks for the giveaway!


I’d like to see a healthy, no sweet breakfast.


My kids are on a cornbread kick and my youngest can’t have eggs so I’d love to see your take on vegan cornbread.


I would love to see a quick grain free casserole I can make for a bunch of people.


A soup – potato leek maybe? Something good and creamy without the cream!

    Laura @ RYG

    I totally agree! I tried the cauliflower soup from The Pioneer Woman and although my family loved it….the cheese….the cream. We are packing on the pounds here. I know cauliflower is the unsung hero of the veggie world and I’d love an option that didn’t inflate me too much. Potato soup, broccoli soup, all are soo good but the calories. The fat. I’ve gotta stop.

Suman Desaraju

Yum, this looks awesome! The next recipe I would like to see is for savory snacks that are tree-nut free!


I’d like to see another warm


I would love to see more dairy free recipe with or without substitutions. Thanks for all you do.


I’d like to see another warm salad recipe so it’s easier to get in more raw veggies without feeling like I’m eating another salad 🙂


I’d like to see some type of pasta/goulash(cant spell)or type of bake. More protein lets carbs and unwanted sodium/fats

Sarah Gartung

I would really love to see more sugar/sweetener free desserts!! I really have a hard time avoiding sugars.

Emily Jones

I would love some more granola bar recipes (GF)! 🙂


I would like to see healthy cinnamon swirl bread or an oreo cookie


I would love a new salad dressing!

Shashi @ runninsrilankan

Ohh – this is my kind of “mylk”!!!
I would love to see “Hippie Hemp Hummus” maybe?


I’ve been on a search lately for a simple granola bar. Your Raspberry Almond ones are great, but I’d like to find one that’s really simple for those in-a-rush times too! And something not too heavily nutty.


Please send a casseroll dish, something warm & filling for hungry winter evenings:)

Ellen S

I’d love to see a recipe for healthy one pot casserole dish!

jamie Lopez

Broccoli casserole. Is that even possible? I’d love to find out.
Thanks for this new recipe and the chance for the book!


I would like to see a sugar-free honey substitute.

Laura @ The Green Forks!

I would love to see a great fudgy brownie recipe that is also healthy.

April V

I would love to see some smoothie recipes!!


I would love to see a guilt-free gooey brownie recipe. 🙂


I would love to see a recipe for a casserole or a dessert, but anything you come up with is delicious.
I have been following the winter detox and the food is amazing!


Anything healthy & delicious…I love it all 🙂


How about some healthy casserole recipes?


Something gluten free and egg free for breakfast – that’s the toughest meal of the day for me. Especially something that my kids would like – no fun having to fix something for me and something different for them!


Thank goodness for YOU and your amazing creative recipes. My daughter has so many food allergies and your work enables her to enjoy food that she loves. Your coconut Blondies ate her favorite cookie and take-a-long snack on the go! Could you develop the recipe with cacao and “chocolatize” the tecipe? What could be more yummy than “cacao-almond-coconut”? Love, love, love your blog! THANK YOU for giving us delicious, alternative choices in life! ❤️ -Tammy U.


I am at a loss and I would love to see a recipe for breakfast that doesn’t use eggs, nuts, dairy or whole grains.


I would love to see more easy dinner options for my family. I keep trying to sneak more veggies in!!


I would love to see some coconut-free dessert recipes. I know a number of folks with coconut intolerance, including myself, and its getting more difficult to find delicious, sugar-free dessert recipes that are also coconut-free. Cheers!


You already have so many delicious recipes on your site. I like the recipes that appeal to kids. As an adult I will eat most anything if it is good for me and doesn’t taste completely awful, but my kids are a different story. They eat healthfully, but I need to get more veggies in them. And I’d like to do it without tricking them or disguising the veggies. Maybe more recipes on how to get more veggies in them at breakfast and lunch rather than just at dinner.


I would love to see a recipe with a resistant starch (preferably not with beans). I have been told I need more in my diet but am struggling with how to incorporate them!


As a student, I am always looking for easy recipes that are good to pack and carry. I would love more easy and healthy lunch recipes.


    I second this one! As a college student, I struggle with healthy (and easy) breakfast and lunch recipes that can be eaten on-the-go/ in a pinch.


I would love to see a smoothie recipe that uses 4 – 5 vegetables, since I usually only put in spinach and kale – other options would be great!


Vegetarian Chili or soups!


    Ohsheglows.com has an amazing vegan chili. My meat/potato husband didn’t even realize it was missing beef and he absolutely loved it! . I made it twice in the last 2 weeks!


I would love to see more soup recipes and anything that is chocolate that is actually good for me!

Kate York

I’d love to see an easy curry dinner. ty!


i love emily & her blog! hmm.. i would like to see recipes for late-night snacks! you know.. those that you can eat right before bed without feeling too full 🙂


Something to get in more greens! Or a vegan and grain free scone made with coconut flour. I think using coconut flour without eggs is the hardest thing!


A quick and easy dinner!!


Would love to see a healthy casserole! Tough to find ones without cream of ____ soup.


A recipe for a healthy snack bar, like a granola bar would be great.

Kate C.

I’d love to see a quick, healthy casserole recipe! I’ve been struggling to come up with weeknight dinner ideas that don’t have me in the kitchen all night (although I don’t mind I just have other stuff I have to get done too!)! 🙂


A on the go protein bar.
