Who knew it was this easy? I’ve been buying Nesquik (or Nestle Quik for old school readers) for years and recently checked the ingredients. Once again, I’m left thinking, “There has to be a way I can make a copycat version at home without the additives”. From the ingredient list, I found it contains three basic dry ingredients and a bunch of other stuff I’d rather not give my kids to eat.
My little girl is not a fan of milk. I’ve tried everything but standing on my head to get her to drink more. After much experimenting, she’ll drink milk with a spoonful of my Homemade Chocolate Syrup. It’s delicious and no wonder she loves the chocolate milk. However, I don’t always have the time to cook up a batch of syrup. So, I found a way to make a Nesquik copycat recipe that is just as delicious.
It could not be any more simple…
2/3 C Sugar 1/3 C Cocoa Pinch of Salt Combine the three ingredients and store in a sealed container. That’s it!
~Using a high quality cocoa will result in a very rich, chocolatey flavor.~
This is so good mixed into cold milk or added to milk and ice in the blender. It also makes a rich, delicious hot cocoa. If so, don’t forget the pillowy homemade marshmallows on top!
Results: Success! She loves it. So now I know she’ll drink milk made with…
momma’s homemade Nesquik
Hey, I choose my battles.
NOTE: I’ve been using this recipe for a while now. It’s great! One trick I found (thanks to some advice from readers!) to help it dissolve is to first add about one tablespoon of hot water to the powder in the cup and swirl it around for a few seconds. Then, add the cold milk. Perfect!
Be sure to pin for later!
