Nesquik Chocolate Milk Recipe:

My kids love chocolate milk. Yes, they will drink plain milk but putting chocolate mix in their milk take it to the next level. I love making this simple recipe at home. It is only 2 ingredients that I already have in my pantry.

There are a ton of ingredients in Nesquick that are primarily used as preservatives that I don’t really want in my kiddos little systems. Making it at home is budget friendly and I know exactly what is being placed in the chocolate mix.

When you see how easy this is, you’ll be making your own in no time! You only need 2 ingredients (and maybe a cute little mason jar). Are you ready to make your own homemade Nesquik? You are going to be amazed how easy it is to make.

Ingredients

  • Cocoa Powder (any kind will do)
  • Granulated sugar

I have seen some people say they like to add a small amount of salt, but that is completely optional. Honestly? We have so much added salt in a variety of foods and drinks that I really try to leave it out when I can. Just do what you prefer.

How to make Homemade nesquik

Be prepared this is going to go quickly… It is so easy.

  • First, add your cocoa powder and granulated sugar to a mason jar. Secure the lid and shake until well mixed. That is all you need to do.
  • You can make as little or as much as you want.

How to make Chocolate Milk:

We love a good glass of chocolate milk. Follow these easy steps to make the best chocolate milk:

  • To make a delicious cup of chocolate milk, put a couple of teaspoons of the homemade Nesquick in a glass.
  • Add about a tablespoon of very warm water and mix until powder is dissolved.
  • Add desired amount of cold milk and enjoy.

If you are wondering about the warm water – cocoa powder can be difficult to fully incorporate in cold drinks. The warm water helps dissolve the cocoa powder and sugar so when you add your cold milk you won’t be left with unsightly clumps of homemade Nesquick on the top of your milk.

Once you add your milk, you’ll never know there is a tiny bit of water in there but it really helps to make the texture so smooth and creamy. Your kids will ask for this all the time!

Any Milk will be great!

Any type of milk works great with this Nesquik recipe. We typically buy almond milk or low fat milk. But you can also use whole milk.

I have always bought the lower fat milk so my kids don’t know the difference especially if they mix it with a little chocolate. There have been times that my kids will use chocolate syrup but we prefer the Nesquik powder mix.

Chocolate milk is a treat at my house. It is perfect with some warm cookies.

This is much cheaper to make!

The average cost for a 10 ounce container of Nesquick will probably set you back about $3. I was able to find Best Choice Cocoa Powder marked down (right after Christmas) for only $1. I was also able to get a 4 pound bag of sugar for only $1 (it was on sale and I had a coupon).

Even if I used and entire container of cocoa powder and sugar (which I didn’t), this would still cost you less than a container of Nesquick! You really have no reason as to why you shouldn’t try to make this homemade Nesquick today!

It’s so yummy and frugal too.

How to store:

Storing your Nesquik mix is very easy to do. We like to keep in a designated mason jar or an airtight container.

I even leave a specific teaspoon next to the jar so my kids can easily make their chocolate milk.

  1. The homemade stuff is so much better, isn’t it? Something that might be a bit easier (less messy?) is making your own Hershey’s chocolate syrup. It’s is great for ice cream topping AND for chocolate milk….Here’s the recipe: 1 1/2 cups sugar; 3/4 cup cocoa powder; dash salt; 1 cup hot water; 2 tsp vanilla extract. In saucepan combine sugar, cocoa and salt. Gradually add water, stirring to keep mixture smooth. Cook over medium heat; stirring constantly til mixture boils; boil and stir 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla. Pour into heatproof container (fills a pint jar). Cool, cover and refrigerate. Keeps for several weeks refrigerated. Enjoy!

  2. I usually make my kids a shake with the store bought stuff, adding milk, ice, banana, peanut butter and spinach. Can I just add this powder like normal instead of using the store bought stuff? or do I need to still add it to a tablespoon of hot water before putting it in the blender?

  3. I haven’t tried that before but I think you could just add it to the blender since you have the milk in there. The blender should combine it thoroughly with the other ingredients. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. I think that the problem with it not resolving and having to put it in a little hot water first is because of the cocoa you use. Guess what? I just bough from DOLLAR GENERAL Nesquick cocoa! Now I can really stretch out my Nestle Quick fix.

  5. Now if you have a recipe for Strawberry Quik that would make my son happy!

  6. 5 stars
    My nieces love chocolate milk but I never have the mix on hand. This one is great for last minute because it’s made with things I always have in the cupboard. Also, the girls loved making their own!
