Here’s everything you will need to make Chocolate Almond Milk:


Did you know that almonds are not nuts? They’re actually seeds that you can get from almond trees. Almonds have a hard shell with the seeds inside.

One ounce of whole almonds has about 152 calories and vitamins and minerals, too. Aside from the flavor they give, almonds also have health benefits:

  • A study in the Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety found that almond skin has antioxidants in the skin.
  • Since they are low in carbohydrates, almonds can help you manage your blood sugar.
  • Almonds are rich in magnesium which is good for keeping your blood pressure levels at bay.
  • With their high level of protein and fiber, almonds will also make you feel full for a longer time.
  • WebMD mentioned that almonds can also promote a healthy gut to boost your immunity.

You can enjoy almonds in different ways. Sometimes, I love pairing it with fruits, oatmeal, smoothies, and even baked goods. I also suggest using these for Granola, Almond Loaf Cake, and Almond Oil!

Cocoa powder

How can you make the drink thick, creamy, and chocolatey? Just add cocoa powder! Aside from the rich flavor it gives, the cocoa powder also gives the drink its appealing color.

The powerful chocolate flavor of the cocoa powder, mixed with a hint of sweetness, also tastes perfect with the almonds. Did you know that cocoa is the secret ingredient to Dark Chocolate?

Raw honey

Don’t forget to season the drink with sweeteners. First on the list is raw honey. It has a natural sweet and sour flavor that tones down the cocoa powder and almonds for a balanced taste.

It also serves as a healthy sweetener for a better-tasting drink. The honey’s thick and sticky consistency will also melt into the drink for a fine texture, too.

Vanilla extract

Finish off the Chocolate Almond Milk with vanilla extract. Even a bit of this seasoning can instantly improve the drink. It also has a warm and woody flavor to give the milk a soothing effect.

Vanilla extract also has a distinct aroma that will excite your senses before you drink. It’s actually one of my go-to sweeteners for my homemade drinks.

No sugar or preservatives are needed. Just organic, fresh, and healthy ingredients! You will certainly never regret using these to make Chocolate Almond Milk.

Storing almond
  • Very Well Fit suggests storing almonds in containers to refrigerate or freeze.
  • Properly stored almonds can last for up to two years. 

Chocolate Almond Milk Variations

Aside from raw honey and vanilla extract, you can also use maple syrup, sugar, dates, stevia, or other sweeteners. If you want to cook it, then you may include cornstarch and butter for a creamier flavor and texture. 

Fruits, bananas, and berries are best for these nutty drinks. For weight loss, I also suggest using chia or flax seeds for a filling effect every time you eat or exercise.

For more plant-based milk ideas, I suggest coconut milk because of how delicious and versatile it can be. Now, you have more milk options to choose from.
