Homemade chocolate milk

It’s the ultimate collab – two loved and respected food brands who each make fantastic quality products, joining them together in blended union. Organic milk + premium chocolate = a marriage made in heaven.

But there has been just one problem with Lewis Road Creamery’s Chocolate Milk (featuring Whittaker’s Creamy Milk Chocolate): it’s been flying off shelves faster than they can make it. However, help is at hand. Using a little Kiwi ingenuity, you can make your own Lewis Road Creamery Chocolate Milk. Here’s how…

Homemade Chocolate Milk Recipe

Homemade Chocolate Milk
Let me be clear – I’m not being paid for this. But take it from me, a confirmed non-milk drinker AND as someone who can easily say no to most milk chocolate, that these two products are incredibly good, both separately and together. If you’re struggling to get your hands on a bottle of their match-made-in-heaven chocolate milk, here’s how to make your own at home.

125g Whittaker’s Creamy Milk Chocolate, roughly chopped
750ml Lewis Rd Creamery Light Milk
a pinch of salt

Put the chocolate and half the milk in a small saucepan and set over low heat. Stir occasionally, until the chocolate has just melted. Set aside and cool to room temperature, then add the remaining milk and the salt. Stir well, then decant into a jug or bottle and put in the fridge to chill completely. The chocolate may solidify a little, but a good shake or stir will sort things out.

Have a great weekend, everyone x

    Love your simple recipes Lucy. Never bought chocolate milk in my life, but now I've read this I'm off to the kitchen to make myself a hot chocolate.

    But the milk they are using is from their standard range, not the organic range…

    What is the salt used for and when do you add it?

      Salt brings out the flavour of the chocolate. Add it as the last ingredient when the milk is room temp

    I make it with 125g of Whittakers chocolate to 1 litre of Lewis Road Creamery lite milk. Not sure what the salt is for?

      Salt is used to sharpen the taste of chocolate

    Looks like they use cocoa powder in their ingredients too – 1% so about 5 tbsp per 750ml bottle…
