Delicious Chocolate Milk

Hubby has a major sweet tooth. Left to his own devices, he would probably eat little else but sweets. I don’t bake much, and I don’t buy sweets, so we rarely have them in the house. And I try to make the sweets he eats at least somewhat nutritious.

When the folks at NuNaturals – who make a wide variety of stevia products – sent me a whole box of their products, including four new flavors, I had some fun coming up with new, sweet, non-sugar recipes, some of which I will share later this week. Stay tuned also for a NuNaturals giveaway! 



One of the new flavors I got was Chocolate NuStevia drops, and I decided to use them to make hubby some no sugar added chocolate milk, using milk, unsweetened cocoa, and the Chocolate NuStevia drops. Since I used whole milk, he got only a very small glass. Smile



He loved the chocolate milk, and it certainly satisfied his sweet tooth (for a while at least).

Questions: Do you have a sweet tooth? I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, although I like sweet things more now than when I was younger, when I didn’t like them at all. If so, what’s your favorite sweet treat? Have you ever tried NuNaturals products? If so, how do you like them? The Vanilla Stevia drops have been a favorite of mine for quite some time. The new flavors are awesome, too!

Be well,
Andrea

  1. Hi Andrea! I must confess that I eat mini chocolate chips every day. :D Just a tiny bit, but everyday.

  2. Chocolate stevia? that's so cool! I'd also use it to make chocolate milk! :)

    I don't have a sweet tooth either except for dark chocolate. I like NuNaturals products a lot because its the most natural taste of sweetener.

  3. I haven't had chocolate milk in so long - you've definitely inspired me to make a glass! I don't have a sweet tooth so much as a chocolate tooth ;) I'll take chocolate in a savory dish over a sweet dessert any day! I've never tried NuNaturals products, although I can see how they'd add a nice boost of chocolate to the milk. I'm glad to hear the hubby enjoyed it! :)

  4. I love the NuNaturals chocolate drops. I now have the orange and lemon ones, but they just aren't the same. I liked add ing the chocolate drops to smoothies, delicious.
    Nick has a major sweet tooth too, and if I weren't around he could easily eat an entire carton of ice cream (or a handful of chocolate, or two). Bu tI have a sweet tooth too.....so together we are awful sometimes!

  9. Oh Andrea, I feel so guilty...I too got a full box with NuNaturals and really did not have time to come up with anything...only my husband has been using the sugar substitute for his morning coffee, which he loves it...
    Your chocolate milk looks great...simple and sweet.
    Have a wonderful week!

  13. Hi Andrea - NuNaturals is truly a generous company, aren't they? I love their products. They sent me a few items to try, and I've truly enjoyed using them in vinaigrettes. I'll have to try their chocolate stevia. Like you, I don't bake much. I'm not much of a sweet eater, but my husband sure is. :)

  15. I like sweets, but I happy with just a little bit. I find I have much less of a sweet tooth since I have gotten older (and wiser :-). I don't use stevia a lot, but when I do, I do like the and Naturals drops. Lucky hubby :-)
