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!

I would love to see more casseroles! your green bean casserole has been a huge hit around the holidays; we love them! Maybe a healthy take on a tuna helper casserole using spaghetti squash or something? 🙂


I’m always up for an awesome vegan casserole!


As a working mom with a picky eater toddler, I would love some fresh and simple ideas for sneaking veggies into lunch/dinner! Especially anything nut free that I can send it to school, too! Thank you for all your GREAT recipes! We’ve been enjoying them!


I second the vegan, grain-free scone. Love scones!!!

Jen F

Looks delicious! I would love to see a savory bread of some sort. Wheat free preferably of course! Would be perfect for the winter with all the soup eating. Thanks for all your recipes! So fun my paleo sister and I (95% vegan) can share so many recipes from your site.


A Good hearty healthy winter soup.


A casserole dish. I have been modifying the ones I grew up with but could still use idea.

Nicole Beasley

Hi I love your blog and your recipes were a success over the holidays. I love your pumpkin pie, ginger sweet potatoes, and green been casserole and so did my in-laws. I am an avid fitness and healthy food follower. My husband is sensitive to gluten and hard to cook for since he is so picky. I have a hard time to find gluten free bread recipes that are not tough as he puts it and taste stale. I am new at this and was super excited to see your cookbook coming out. I pre-ordered 3 copies (2 for my friends). I like to see more recipes that include meats and fish, and a recipe for macaroni with cheese. I also like to see more recipes for recovery smoothies/protein filled snacks to add to my diet and more gluten free bread options for my hubs. Thank you for creating this wonderful blog and providing us newbies a wonderful source for healthy recipes 🙂

Rebecca @ Strength and Sunshine

gluten-free vegan bagels 😉


I would LOVE ♥♥♥ to see a Thai shrimp curry noodle soup made WITHOUT coconut milk and gluten free noodles. I can’t figure out how to do it and make it that luscious creamy without the coconut milk/cream which I’m highly allergic too booo 🙁

If you could find a way I would be so happy I already got the cute bowls and soups spoons ready to go 🙂

Kelly Sinclair

I love the scones idea as well. And I’ve been really into fruit and vegetable smoothies lately and am also looking for new combinations. I pre-ordered your book, hard to wait until June! Thanks for your awesome recipes.


I would love to see a healthy snack that is easy to take to work


I would like to see something snacky, that’s easy, fast, and healthy. Thanks!


A dairy free ‘creamy’ sauce for things like stroganoff, pot pies, even gravy would be wonderful. I have a couple but nothing that really makes me stop and think, “Yeah, I want THAT for dinner.” I have a good cauliflower soup recipe but I use Daiya in it for flavor and I’d like to get away from that.

This mylk recipe looks wonderful by the way.


I can’t wait to try this recipe!!
I would love to see more smoothies recipes for breakfast on the go!


I like your dips and dressings the best (mmm Creamy Thai “Peanut” Dressing!!), but all-in-one meals like casseroles or soups are especially nice. One dish that can feed both me (restricted diet) and my family makes life a lot easier!


I love juicing!


Would love to see an easy dinner recipe that is toddler approved! Love all of your recipes. Had the Winter Dream Shake for breakfast — yum!

Hannah Stoffel

A long time family favorite of ours has been tuna noodle casserole. Unfortunately it uses golden mushroom condensed soup and egg noodles. I have made it using gluten free noodles but I haven’t found a substitute for the mushroom soup. I would love to see a healthier version of this recipe!

Katie G

Hi! I would love to see a grain free, DF GF casserole recipe! January in MN calls for some good comfort food 🙂

Also just pre-rdered your book, cant wait until June!

Yajhayra Maria

I would love a copy of that book, I just bought a Juicer!! It would be perfect. I would love to see a healthy recipe for lasagna. It use to be my go to comfort food.

Nadine Johnston

I would love to see another recipe for a cookie 🙂 your cookies are always so amazing!!


I find around 8:00pm I’m looking for something to eat….healthy low cal snacks is what I would like to see.


I’d get a lot of use out of a chicken salad recipe… Also – I’d love a recipe for fruit scones!

Renee S.

An egg free “breakfast” item that is kid-friendly! And, we always love smoothie recipes…quick and easy to throw it all in the blender and have it ready in less than 60 seconds!

Kellie M

I would love a healthy, quick, recipe to make for dinner, when we get home at night. Not necessarily a crock pot recipe either. I do love your recipes and my husband has loved everything I have made for him 🙂


GF valentine sugar cookies or a vegan cashew curry with rice noodles


Can you create a vegetarian gumbo? I love your website~ Thanks.


I love all your recipes! Would really appreciate some ideas for egg-free but protein-rich breakfasts. Thank you:)


I would love ideas for healthy, easy portable lunches. Thank you


Love your recipes!! I’d love to see some more info on how you continue to introduce food to your little guy. I have an 11 mo old and would love your take on introducing meat and eggs. I have read your other posts on grans. Thanks!


Some kind of higher fat, lower carb snackbar that incorporates turmeric powder would be fun to see, given your creativity.


Jumpin on the kiddo bandwagon…would be nice to see a tasty, meat/dairy/egg-free, kid-friendly, maybe some veggie-filled snack or dinner idea. My 5 yo is refusing most veggies these days, ugh…

Jill Ferrell

I need breakfast ideas (I’m sure the smoothie ideas in this book will be great for that!) and I need lunch ideas for my husband to easily take to work (and not have to use the microwave for. yuck!).


I would love to see a nut free version of your pumpkin pie and the mac and cheese sauce. My family loves both those recipes but my daughter was just diagnosed with an anaphylactic cashew allergy so we are going nut free 🙁


Vegan butter tarts…yum!


I would like to see a creative olive snacks.


I love her blog. I drool over almost everything she posts! I’d love to see more recipes with nutritional yeast. I love sprinkling it on salads and baking veggies with it, but I want to incorporate it more in my diet and my ways are getting boring.


Fun! 🙂 I’d love to see a recipe for an all raw-food meatball over rice (no actual meat or rice, but a vegetable that one could use in place of rice/meat).
Thanks! 🙂


I thought of another recipe I would like to see. My birthday is coming up and I would love a dessert that could be made for a group, something like a cake or bar that would be perfect for a birthday celebration.


mmmmm, I’m going to soak some cashews and almonds this morning and make some!!
I’m curious if you have explored any recipes for vegan mayo? Or even a complte alternative to mayo? I’ve tried a couple times with healthy oils and have bombed.


First, thank you so much for your website and mostly your simplicity! I love your recipes. I would love to see a great homemade salsa and baked corn tortilla chip recipe to pair with your delicious healthy queso:)

Amy Milliron

I am not the cook in our home. I need to be better. I am so unsure of myself and need simple ideas for quick, easy dinners and snacks. Breakfasts too.


Thanks for sharing your creations! Have you ever tried a vegan cheese recipe?


Would love to see some grain free bread recipes or some gluten- and dairy- free salty/savory snacks for the afternoon… I’m love savory snacks and have the hardest time finding savory snacks to munch on that are not pretzels…


kids healthy school lunch….. warm or cold…..


I love soup and I love eggs in the morning. I am struggling with finding something crunchy to eat with them- something other than bread!


I would like a recipe for really easy glutten free pizza crust.

mary b.

Hi, I would love to have a healthy casserole recipe!!!
It would make life easier on those busy nights! Thanks!!!!!


I have been reading over the other comments, and I’d love to see all that are mentioned thus far. But for me personally, I would like to see more recipes that focus on plant sourced protein. I have the winter detox and other than eggs, am having difficulty with protein focused meals. I tend to end up with starch meals.
