Chocolate Milk for the Frugal Mama

My kids LOVE chocolate milk but for our family this is a rare treat.  I HATE buying it because a) the small quantities are really overpriced and b) the larger quantities are more then we need to have around the house.  If its there, they want it (i.e. beg for it!)

I don’t know why I never thought of this solution before. Maybe I’m the only one that was still mixing small little individual cups.  But, I figured I’d share just in case one other frugal mama could have a “Duh, why haven’t I been doing this all along!” sort-of moment:)

I considered titling the post “A Frugal AND LAZY Mama’s Chocolate Milk” but really its not laziness but rather efficiency…or at least that’s what I choose to believe!

A Frugal Mama's Chocolate Milk

Any extras can be stored right in the jar in the fridge.  The syrup will settle but you just need to shake before the next serving.

Added bonus?  My kids are satisfied with a “mild” chocolate milk  (i.e. not much syrup) which means less sugar with the same “Mom, you’re the best for giving us this delicious treat” effect!!

Thanks for taking a look!

    lol I remember begging my mom for extra syrup i she made it individually. This way has got to give you more peace and less hyperactivity. Congrats on taming the choco demons!
