This cocoa recipe can be totally customized to what you have at home, what you like best and how sweet you want your cocoa! It is perfect for after a cold winter run or for settling down for a movie any time!

When you make your cocoa with milk, you get all the benefits of milk’s nutrient package – including its ability to refuel your body after exercise! Milk has the ideal balance of carbohydrates and protein, 3 to 4 grams of carbohydrate for every 1 gram of protein, for recovery from exercise. Plus, if you are lactose intolerant, you can make this recipe with lactose free milk!

1 cup cow’s milk of your choice – full fat, low fat, lactose-free, etc.
1 tablespoon cocoa – more or less if you prefer
1 tablespoon powdered sugar – more or less if you prefer

Directions:
In a small saucepan, heat the milk and ingredients over medium heat, whisking to mix everything together and froth the milk a bit while it heats. Once steaming, remove from heat and serve. Be careful not to allow the milk to boil or go over 170 degrees so it doesn’t scald.
