i almost always send Bryan with a tall mug of chocolate milk (or cocoa in the winter) as he leaves the house in the morning for his hour-long commute. But, recently, I was out of cocoa powder. I was just going to skip the milk, until a small box in the cupboard caught my eye.
I had a brainstorm. I dumped the powder in a small plastic container, and added about a cup of hot water.
Then, I dumped the whole thing into a gallon of whole fresh farm milk. This is what I got:
Homemade Pink Milk!
Another stir and it was done. You want to mix all of the milk with the powder to achieve an even color.
Unsure of how it would taste, I cautiously took a sip. I liked it!
I poured some into Bryan’s travel mug, and a glass for Jayme. Everyone loved it, and said it tasted like Strawberry Nesquick! My pink milk was a success!
Since then, we’ve experimented with lime milk and orange milk. They are all delicious! We are looking forward to trying some other flavors of Jello like raspberry and peach.
Be sure to use hot enough water to dissolve the powder. Not doing this will leave clumpy powder in your milk. Not that I have any experience with that or anything. 🙂
I’ve also been successful making this for Owen with cashew milk and sugar-free jello. It’s a fun treat for him that actually looks like everyone else’s!
Have you ever tried making Jello milk? What’s the strangest delicious experiment you’ve ever created?
Will you give my homemade pink milk a try? I’d love to hear what you thought. We all love it!
