People! YOU PEOPLE!!! I am still basking in the warmth of all your love, and kindness, and support, after I threw open my kimono the other day to reveal the rather inconvenient truth about the state of play inside my brain at the moment. You are wonderful, wonderful friends. I feel I can call you friends because you did what real friends do – you cheered, and sent hugs, and had love winging its way to Seattle by whatever means you could. I can’t really find the words to explain how much I appreciate your beautiful thoughtfulness. I think we all deserve a big glass of Chocolate Milk.
While the purpose of my last post was to shed some light and understanding that may help and encourage someone else, the outpouring of support that you sent my way was so very appreciated. Writing that post was scary – that you just loved me anyway made it so much less so. You people are the BEST.
I want to say that this post is for all your children, but I’d be fibbin’ if I said that. It’s for everyone. Little people, big people, any people who love chocolate milk. I do. I mean I *really* love chocolate milk.
When I was living in Perth, Australia, and my brother came out to visit for a month in the middle of summer, we virtually lived on chocolate milk, because neither of us had the energy or the appetite to eat real food – it was so darn hot. You know when it’s so hot that even the flies don’t come out? Yeah. THAT hot. Every single day we each drank at least a liter of chocolate milk. Maybe that’s why I now correlate hot weather with chocolate milk. Maybe that’s why I am chugging down a huge glass of chocolate milk RIGHT NOW. Maybe that’s why I feel compelled to share how I make my KETO choc milk today in particular. It’s 85° in Seattle today, and baby, in Seattle, that’s stinkin’ hot.
Don’t let me fool you into thinking that I am only drinking chocolate milk because it’s hot. No siree. I drink it all the time. Of course, I don’t drink any old chocolate milk. I only drink my own KETO version that I have lovingly made from scratch in the Life in the Sane Lane HQ kitchen. And I think you should now how I make it so that you can make it too.
All store-bought chocolate milk is disastrous. Not only does it taste nasty, but most of it is a chemical <bleep> storm, and all of it is loaded with sugar. LOADED.
So here’s my KETO version. There’s a trick to making it, because that cocoa powder that we love so much can be a tad tricky when you try to mix it into anything cold. I’ve given you the recipe for a big ol’ glass, and then I’ve given you the recipe for making a huge batch of chocolate syrup that you can keep in the ‘fridge and just whip out to make instant chocolate milk, because who wants to boil water when it’s 85°?
I should warn you – once you drink this KETO chocolate milk will you never want to drink regular chocolate milk again. Well, I hope you don’t want to anyway, but once you’ve tried this you definitely won’t.
Got KETO Chocolate Milk? Raw cocoa powder is like one of the healthiest foods on planet earth.
