Best Ever Chocolate Milk recipe (Gluten-free and Vegan!)

Hi friends! What's shakin'? This chocolate milk is AMAZING!

Maybe my favorite thing I have ever made in the Vita mix? Not to mention it is great for quelling that preggo chocolate craving!

Vegan, Gluten-Free Thick Chocolate Milk

1 c unsweetened almond milk (I used the Silk brand - I love how creamy it is!)

1 1/2 heaping Tbsp cocoa powder

1/2 - 1 tsp stevia, or more to taste (can substitute sugar or agave if desired)

1/2 tsp guar gum (can substitue xantham gum) - this makes the milk super thick!

3 ice cubes

1 tsp vanilla

pinch sea salt

Blend until smooth and creamy. Serve with chocolate chip cookies if desired (these were the Betty Crocker GF mix, made with Earth Balance and a flax egg).

This french toast rocked my world:

I topped it with a drizzle of agave - so delicious! Powdered sugar would be great too. Check out Peas & Thank You! Best cookbook ever :)

What are you up to this weekend? I am running the Disney Wine and Dine 1/2 marathon Saturday (tomorrow) night! It's my first night race - so stoked!
