Homemade Chocolate Syrup–No White Sugar, No Chemicals!

Real Food Chocolate syrup

Do you LOVE chocolate milk? I do. But we haven’t had it for a year as we challenge ourselves to eat a real food diet. Whelp…resistance is futile (Trekkie fans understand) and I felt the need to come up with a good recipe to satisfy my chocolate milk desires! My kids LOVED this recipe so much they thanked me with LOTS of kisses. I bet your kids will like it too! I plan to stir a little of this chocolaty goodness into my coffee tomorrow morning! Yummo! Best of all this recipe does not call for white sugar or corn syrup! You can substitute 1/2 tsp of almond extract– or peppermint– for1/2 of the vanilla extract to give you chocolate almond syrup or chocolate peppermint syrup! Enjoy!
