Very Easy To Make Hazelnut And Cocoa Milk

This cocoa hazelnut milk is perfect for kids; they love it! It is much healthier than traditional cocoa powder drinks that tend to have many sugar and refined flours and little cocoa

With the remains of the pulp that remains when making this milk, you can prepare some very rich and easy-to-make truffles or balls (it will be the following recipe we publish on the blog).

To sweeten the milk, I usually use dates, but you can also use date syrup or any other natural sweetener; there are many different options to choose from. 

You can also try unsweetened milk, although it seems to me that you have to add something to make it sweeter because cocoa is bitter.

I have used unsweetened cocoa powder; although you can also use carob, it is vibrant and healthier. I was waiting for the pot of cocoa I had at home to use up, and I finally got it to use carob powder from now on. 

I have never cooked with it, but I have tried sweets made by other people, and the truth is that I could not tell the difference. 

I recommend that you add the cocoa little by little because you may like it with more or less quantity than I do. If you go too far with cocoa, add more water or more dates for a less intense flavour.

If you don't like hazelnuts, you can use any other vegetable milk (we have many published on the blog) and add cocoa, try it and if it is not sweet enough, add more sweetener. 

I love the combination of cocoa + hazelnuts, I think it is the best-dried fruit with chocolate, but it is also vibrant with any other. 

If you like this combination, you should try our cocoa and hazelnut cream; it is delicious and a thousand times healthier than the typical creams sold in supermarkets.

To make vegetable milk, I always use my Chufamix; it has been a real discovery (you can see how it is used in our cashew milk recipe); it is a handy tool to make this type of drinks. However, you can do it without problems with a blender and a fine strainer, a gauze or a napkin. 

I also use the Vitamix to beat it because it produces much less pulp than with other less powerful mixers, although you can use whatever you have.

This hazelnut and cocoa milk is prepared in 10 minutes and lasts about 3 or 4 days in the fridge. I know that it is more convenient to buy ready-made shakes or cocoa milk, but it is worth losing a few minutes and making a much healthier meal. 

If you can't, at least avoid cow's milk (or any other animal's milk) and drinks full of sugars and additives. We only have one body, and we have to take care of it; it is worth investing our time and money. Also, this drink is straightforward, fast and cheap.
