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!
