For National Chocolate Milk Day,
I turn to some fond childhood memories.
For many of us, Nestlé's Quik® was a staple. It went beyond mere chocolate milk, milkshakes, or hot cocoa. We would sprinkle Nestlé's Quik® over plain Vanilla ice cream and sliced bananas to make a low rent sundae. Sometimes, we would make a paste out of it with a little water and use it as a spread for toast, who needs Nutella®! But, other times, it was needed for a Mocha.
Mocha Chocolate Milk
Oddly enough, this recipe appeared on the back of the Nestlé's Quick® container. If only Starbuck's knew that Nestlé had cornered the market in creating hyper-caffeinated sugar fueled children's beverages before they even existed.
Nsetlé's Quick® Chocolate Flavor
In a pint glass, fill about a third of the way with Whole Milk. Add a teaspoon of Instant Coffee and stir until the Coffee has dissolved.
Fill the pint glass with some more Whole milk and add a teaspoon of Nestlé's Quik. Dtir well. Top off the glass with more Whole Milk. Sprinkle, but do not stir, with another teaspoon of Nestlé's Quik®. Let the Nestlé's Quik® slowly precipitate down the inside of the glass until it settles on the bottom.
Serve with a straw.
Instant Hazelnut flavored coffee, anyone?? Also, this can be served either hot or cold; with or whithout whipped cream; with or without chocolate sprinkles; etc.
