Fruity Chocolate Milk (plus free coloring page)

This fruity twist on the classic chocolate milk, takes a traditional beverage to the next level with pairings like chocolate orange and chocolate raspberry. The 4 ingredient recipe works great with good ol' 2%, skim, or ultra rich vitamin D milk, really, you can use whatever is in your fridge.... even stir in 1 oz of a flavored liqueur like raspberry infused Chambord or orange-flavored cognac liqueur Grand Marnier for an "adult" alternative!

  For anyone who has trouble getting their kids to drink their milk, these glasses full of fruity, chocolatey cold milk are the perfect treat to help them drink up to become healthy, strong adults. Chocolate milk always brings back happy memories from my childhood, so when got milk? contacted me about sharing a post that represents the energy and strength milk provides for young and old, along with the protein and 9 essential nutrients that milk provides to fuel a brighter future, I was happy to join in on spreading the message in my own way, by sharing a milk based recipe that would spotlight the pure, simple and classic beverage, with a sweet fruity twist. I even created a fun coloring activity to go with it!
