As much as my kids love Nesquik mix (and really–what kids don't?), I always hesitate to buy it for them because of all of the less-than-desirable ingredients. Pyridoxine hydrochloride? Copper Gluconate? Manganese Sulfate? No thank you! But I didn't want to just tell them no either. So, I did what I do with so many unhealthy recipes–I made my own!
Now, this Homemade Nesquik Mix recipe may not exactly qualify as health food, but just like my Homemade Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix, my Homemade Fruit Roll-ups and my Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce recipe, it is a lot healthier for you than the store-bought version. Plus, it's cheaper and it still tastes great too!
Chocolate milk is such a fun and yummy treat. My kids aren't the only ones who drink it–I love it too! And now that I make my own, I feel better knowing that they are drinking homemade chocolate milk without all of the extra artificial additives. We love chocolate milk with breakfast, with our after school snack, or as a special late night treat before bed.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make, and it contains only three ingredients that you probably already have on hand. Just mix them together, store it in an air tight container, and you have yummy Homemade Nesquik Mix recipe ready to go whenever your kids ask for it, which with my kids is all the time!
The next time your kids ask for chocolate mix, try this Homemade Nesquik Mix instead. It's easy, inexpensive, healthier than store-bought and yummy! What more could you want?
