I love chocolate milk. Really really love it. Unfortunately shop bought ones are mostly loaded with sugar. In general, when it comes to my toddler, I follow a policy of “If I can eat it, she can eat it”. I don’t feel like it’s fair, or teaching her a good message, if I tell her that she can’t have something, but then I stand in front of her eating it myself. Maybe she’ll just get one little bite, but still, she will get a taste. The flip side, is that it makes me a little more conscious of what I’m eating myself, as maybe if she shouldn’t have it, I shouldn’t have it either.
Coming back to the chocolate milk, I don’t really want her to be drinking the delicious but oh-so-sugary chocolate milk from the shop, so what better way than to make a healthy version for both of us at home! And my goodness, it’s so easy with a blender, like a Baby Bullet! Teaching healthy habits when children are young will help them incredibly as they get older.
Healthy Chocolate Milk Recipe
Milk (Full cream for toddlers under 2 years old)
Cocoa (to taste, I used a normal teaspoonful)
Drop of honey (NB: Only for toddlers over one year old. Honey should not be given to children under one.)
Give it all a whizz in your blender. Done. That simple!
The Baby Bullet is relatively quiet, so I could even make this during her nap, pop on one of the nifty storage lids and put it in the fridge. All ready as a healthy treat to go with lunch time.
