The New Milks Recipe: Spiced Chocolate Milk

This super chocolaty milk is way more flavorful than the version you remember from childhood. To appeal to young kids, omit the spices. From The New Milks.

*Makes About 1 Cup (1 Serving)

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons plain unsweetened almond milk
1 ounce semisweet chocolate, broken up
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 cinnamon stick
3 whole cloves
2 cardamom pods

Add all of the ingredients to a small saucepan, whisk well, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer until the cocoa powder and chocolate dissolve, whisking, about 3 minutes.

Strain into a small-medium bowl, cover, and chill until cold, about 1 hour. Remove the spices, pour into a glass, and serve cold.
