Hey guys!!! I make Chocolate Almond Mylk using Cacao and it was awesome! I had been meaning to do this for ages but when I watched Erin Ireland, from itstodiefor.ca, do it on snapchat (erin-ireland) I finally got around to doing it!
It turned out amazingly, and I am so happy I did make it! You can find the recipe for a Strawberry and Original Almond Mylk on Erin’s site at well! Just click the hyperlinks above! OH and do not forget to follow this absolute beauty on Instagram @erinireland. This lady is so creative, loving and such an inspiration to me!
This milk paired perfectly with my Fit Mixes “balls” (more like little bars of love)! I made all three flavours which were amazing! The Chocolate Chia was my fave, followed by the Vanilla Coconut, then the Cookie Dough but all equally amazing, reasonably priced, aligned with my morals and ethics (that is hugely important to me), and most importantly they are healthy! Such a fuel food, perfect for the fitness freak I am and the muscly hungry maniac I have become! I passively urge you – if that is a thing – to give them a go, I did not regret it!
So quickly wrapping things up by throwing out some love to my girl Erin. I highly suggest that you follow Erin’s Almond Mylk recipe as she is so much better at giving step by step instructions, and she also has some great recipes/inspiration for the leftover Almond Pulp.
Below you can find my recipe for The Cacao Mylk!
I really hope you all enjoy it, and don’t forget to check out these two extremely talented people/product!

- 1 cup of almonds, soaked overnight
- 1L water
- 1 pinch of himalayan sea salt
- 3 tbsp cacao powder (I like mine chocolatey)
- 4 pitted dates
- 1 tbsp coconut nectar
- Into a Vitamix or strong blender (im still waiting on my heavy duty blender and my non strong blender works fine so no pressure) add the almonds and water.
- Blend for around a minute or 3, really just depends on the strenght of your blender!
- Now add the rest of the ingredients and blend for another minute!
- Prepare a large bowl, and nut milk bag (a t-shirt or cheese cloth will work perfectly fine) on your kitchen counter.
- Begin to pour your milk into the nut milk bag over the bowl, or pour the milk onto the shirt (holding sides) over the bowl.
- Once you have all the milk into the bag or shirt begin to strain out the milk (this is where you should go and read Erin’s description), she is truly the Almond Mylk Guru!
- Once you have it all strained just store in your fridge, and it should last up to 5 ish days, but I know it wont be in your friend for that long anyway!
