Chocolate milk is used by athletes as a bone-strengthening, heart-healthy energy drink; but if you’re vegan or dairy-free, what’s the alternative? This vegan chocolate milk has over 500 mg of calcium in every glass, thanks to a generous amount of Natural Vitality Osteo Calm added to the mix. Combined with the healing properties of high-quality cocoa powder and cashews, this drink is just as energizing as its dairy-filled counterpart.
Calming Vegan Chocolate Milk
Prep Time: 5 min
1 cup raw cashews
2 cups filtered water
½ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup Natural Vitality Osteo Calm
2 tablespoons agave nectar, coconut nectar or honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Add all ingredients to the bowl of your high-powered blender and blend on high for 2 minutes, until cashews are completely broken down.
- Transfer to a jug, cover, and chill overnight.
- If honey is used, recipe is no longer vegan. Milk can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. Give it a good shake before serving.
- We recommend using local, organic and non-GMO ingredients whenever possible.
