Homemade Chocolate Milk

Homemade-Chocolate-Milk-From-Slim-Palate

Woah, woah woah, clearly I’ve gone off the deep end here. Drinking raw milk, and now formulating a chocolate milk recipe, clearly I’m a savage. My stance was stated in one of my last posts, eat whatever you want. And I do, I just make sure that I still feel good after said food is consumed. That isĀ if it’s going to be a regular thing. I always thought that dairy caused problems for me but once I eliminated it for a few months and nothing changed I pretty much assumed that it wasn’t a problem for me, thankfully so.

Kombucha-from-Slim-PalateObviously with my recent post for Homemade Bacon along with this post being stringed together so closely I have been quite in the curing/fermenting mood.

Summer has officially hit for me. That doesn’t mean I haven’t stopped running a muck in the kitchen and causing a ruckus. In fact I don’t even think I use the word ruckus very often so I suppose I’ll work on that. I have been doing nothing but anticipate this summer so that I can focus even more on my blog here so I of course am very excited. Speaking of anticipation, you will never guess where I get to go this summer. Guessing is lame actually, nobody wins that game so I’ll just tell you.

I get a lot of joy and a feeling of self accomplishment when I make something homemade. It’s rewarding, it’s fun and it usually leaves you with plenty leftover to share of your masterpiece. Of course as I usually try and exemplify, it’s also much healthier. When you make anything at home you know exactly what is going into it, usually where it came from, and have complete and total control which are all incredibly powerful factors in having perfect taste and nutrition value.
