Chocolate Goat Milk.....YUM!

If there is one thing my husband loves it's chocolate chip cookies. I can't tell you how many batches of those cookies we have made.....tons! Every time he walks by the cookie jar, he just cannot resist opening it up and grabbing a couple. You would never know it by looking at Mike. I have been trying, for 16 years, to fatten him up and it's just not working. :)

Another favorite of his is chocolate milk. My children have come to love this too! Of course we make our own chocolate milk, which is simple, and it's a great treat for a crew of hard workin' people. So next time your children get done helping you weed the garden, mix them up a jar of chocolate (goat) milk and watch them smile. :)
Here is our recipe:

1/4 cup of cocoa
1/2 cup cane juice crystals
1 cup of milk
Add these ingredients to a sauce pot, stir, and simmer for 5 minutes
Then pour this mixture into your 1/2 gallon jar of cold raw goats milk, shake the jar, then add some ice if you like. Enjoy! :) Enjoy it even more with a couple chocolate chip cookies! :)

Hi, Mindy, it's Lenore. We met a couple of weeks ago.

Where do you get cane juice crystals for your chocolate milk mix?

Hi Lenore,
It was so nice to meet you and your family!
I get my cane juice crystals from a company called Country Life. I order all my bulk grains,nuts, and other dry goods from them. Dan and Becky's Market in Cokato also carries cane juice crystal. :)
