Dairy Free Chocolate Milk

This is a great recipe to curb sugar cravings without trashing all of your hard work. I needed a treat during a certain time of the month in order to keep my sanity and what could be better than a cold glass of chocolate milk? (yeah, I could think of a lot of other things, mostly detrimental to my health ;)) Anywho, this is a tasty treat that I like to enjoy on occasion. It's easy to make, and tasty too!

What you need:
1 cup Almond milk
1/2 cup ice cubes
2 tbs of honey
2-4 tbs of cocoa powder depending on how chocolatey you want it. I go for 4 and it tastes more like dark chocolate
high speed blender

Put everything into the blender and process on high until smooth. Pour into a glass and sip through a straw! You can do a different variation of this where you add an avocado and a handful of frozen blueberries to make it thick and more milkshake-y. You could even add cinnamon to give it a boost. There are endless variations.

Remember to limit how much sugar you eat daily even the natural forms like fruit, honey, and pure maple syrup. And don't forget that almonds are meant to be an occasional eat. This recipe is meant to be a treat, not an everyday drink (unless you're training for a marathon and need the extra calories and carbohydrates).
