Chocolate Syrup for Chocolate Milk & So Much More

Gluten-free Chocolate Syrup
This is a homemade, healthy, dairy free chocolate syrup that can be used to top ice cream or any other dish you’d use store-bought chocolate syrup for, including making chocolate milk for yourself and your family. I am super surprised at how delicious this turned out. ENJOY!

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 Cup Water
2/3 Cup Cocoa Powder
1 Cup Coconut Sugar (Regular Sugar will work too)
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Sea Salt
 Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (needed for making chocolate milk only)

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Using a medium saucepan, heat water and cocoa powder together over medium heat.
  2. Add sugar and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring the chocolate syrup continually to prevent burning.
  3. Once the mixture comes to a boil lower your heat to medium-low and cook the syrup until its slightly thick, usually around 5-8 minutes.
  4. Stir the vanilla extract and salt into the chocolate syrup and set aside to cool.
  5. Once cooled, pour the syrup into a storage container and refrigerate.
  6. For chocolate Milk add some of the chocolate syrup to a cup of unsweetened, vanilla Almond milk and enjoy!
