Healthy Chocolate Milk

I hope everyone's back to school has been good! If you're looking for an after school snack to serve or a drink to go with breakfast, try this alternative to normal chocolate milk. It sneaks some fruit in while avoiding sugar or preservatives. We don't normally drink anything but water in our house, so this is a treat for my kids, and I can feel good about them drinking it. You can make it dairy free if you want (I've only tried almond milk and dairy milk, but let me know if you use something else!) or you can leave out the cocoa and just have banana milk, which is also delicious!
