Brown Cows & Chocolate Milk

There once was a little boy who, while throwing away an empty milk carton for me,
asked if it had been chocolate milk, or white.
Upon further investigation, he noticed the black and white cow on the side of the carton and exclaimed that it must have been white milk since only brown cows make chocolate milk.

Oh how I love the mind of a child!

 I explained that all mama cows make white milk,
then people put chocolate in it to make chocolate milk.
He wasn't sure he believed me, so we set out to prove or disprove my theory.

1 cup of organic whole milk
1 teaspoon of organic cocoa powder
1 packet of organic stevia

("Organic means it is healthier," he said.)

Shake well and enjoy!

He declared it DIVINE!

So much so that we had to make a second batch.

Learning is fun... and yummy!

Be sure to enter in my Give-Away!
I'll be taking the workshop, too, and am certain it will be wonderful!!
