Chocolate milk is used for a refreshing post-workout drink. It provides all the nutrients that you’ll need and it’s something that you will drink.

I like Dean's 2% Chocolate Milk

I'd go with the 'make your own' suggestions.
Much better, nutritionally, I'd guess (not a pile of added anything you don't want).

I really appreciated the idea of adding cocoa powder to my yogurt!

Any one try cocoa nibs as an alternative?

If you can find it, there is a single serving size of Nesquik Chocolate Milk that is 100 calories. It's ok in terms of taste and has less sugar than the regular Nesquik Chocolate Milk. I like the regular size of Nesquik Chocolate Milk (2 servings and is 150 calories/serving, I think). I think it tastes better than other brands that are available in my area. I know it's found in the southeast, at least it is found in the Carolina's, TN, and Arkansas. It is low fat, caffeine free, and gluten free (not that being caffeine and gluten free is a problem for me).

I'm a huge chocolate fan, too, so I've been adding a Tbsp or two of good quality dutch processed cocoa powder to my plain yogurt during the day (along with some almonds, or hemp seeds, or fruit, or all of the above!), and to skim milk to make a hot cocoa every evening. A high quality cocoa has a surprising number of nutrients, including fibre, so I see it as a delicious win!

If you are like me and prefer it a little sweeter, you might enjoy adding a tsp of blackstrap molasses to sweeten it up a bit (and get a few more nutrients in to the mix).

Nothing like finding a way to really enjoy getting your nutrition in!

Awesome guys!

Thank you for your input I really appreciate it. I am a chocoholic and was recently told I needed to add more calcium into my diet so thought this would be a great solution.

I just mix my own. Hershey's Chocolate Syrup is the best flavor syrup hands down.

I'm extremely picky when it comes to milk (I truly really only like whole milk--I can tell the difference even when added to coffee).

But I'm definitely a fan of Horizon's 2% chocolate milk. This link has all of the nutrition facts and ingredients. It is shelf stable, and available at Costco/warehouse clubs.

Dairy products are different all over the country. No one else here is going to know what's available to you. About the best you can do is go to the store, look what's there, and read the labels.

I doubt that you'll find any low calorie chocolate milk in single servings, although it's not too hard to find quarts or half gallons of one-percent chocolate milk. They're not very low in calories, though, because of the sugar. Have you looked into flavorings that you add to regular milk? Chocolate syrup is low in fat, though it's very high in sugar and will add 50-100 calories per glass. It's practical, too, because you control how much you add, you can make one glass when you want it instead of having a whole carton, and the syrup keeps for a long time in the fridge.

I don't know whether there's a low calorie powder you can try. Definitely DON'T add powder without reading labels, because some are incredibly high in calories. Malted milk powder is what they used to give to burn patients and other hospital patients who needed thousands of calories per day, back in the days before tube feeding solutions were invented.

Hi All,
I am looking for a great tasting, lowfat and low calorie chocolate milk. If you can purchase it in individual servings that would be even better.
Thank you!!!
