Frozen Chocolate Milk? Seriously?

I love finding light snacks to offer to the kids on summer afternoons and for when they come home from school. And because I’m convinced that my children often confuse hunger for thirst (with them not drinking much from their water bottles during the day), I’ve been trying to offer thirst quenchers in lieu of food when it comes to their after-school snacks.

Our neighbourhood coffee shops offer frozen hot chocolates this time of the year, and while tasty and refreshing, they are also extremely pricey at almost five dollars a pop. This makes them more of a luxury treat than an afternoon snack, but like most things we enjoy eating out, I’ve taken to making my own version at home.

The kids are happy with their sweet and cold refreshment, and I’m thrilled to be saving money while simultaneously keeping their drinks as healthy as possible.

Simple Frozen Chocolate Milk Recipe:
