This is an easy drink that can be served both warm or cold. If your kids love milk with flavor they will love this treat!
My kids are not much milk drinkers except for one who will drink a little every now and again. What happened to milk making you develop strong bones and teeth? Did your parents or teachers say that to you? Ha ha!! Anyway, we were doing some snow activities the other day when I made this drink. It was supposed to be more like a treat because we really don’t make white chocolate milk drinks. But I thought I would try it to see if they’d like it. Plus at the moment, I didn’t have another fast idea for a winter themed treat. Cookies maybe but I was out of butter.
The girls tried the shake and liked the flavor because of the added chocolate, of course. They didn’t drink the entire mug, though since it was a little too much for non-milk drinkers! The little guy didn’t taste any at all – that is fine for a toddler, was not expecting him to do so.
But this is a tasty drink using just two ingredients, milk and white chocolate chips (morsels). Add in some vanilla and toppings and it will be even yummier. If your kids love milk and the taste of white chocolate such as in cookies, they’ll probably enjoy this. Plus it’s not a kids drink per say, adults can make it for themselves, too:)
About the ingredients: It’s best to choose a good kind of chocolate to cut down on some of the excess sugar for the kids. Also, I also used regular whole milk to make it.
What you need:
- 1/4 cup white chocolate pieces or chips (your best favorite kind)
- 2 cups milk (I used whole milk and have not tested it with another kind)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- Topping: Whipped Cream, sprinkles
- Pour milk and chocolate chips into a skillet over low heat.
- Stir until warm and the morsels have melted.
- Stir in the vanilla.
- Remove from heat.
- To serve: Serve hot or cold with whipped cream toppings and sprinkles or cold with toppings (just add in some ice to the shake first to make it cold, then add toppings). I made it cold.
