I’ve never been a fan of beer but earlier this year I decided to try something new. I went out with a few friends and I had Guinness African Special, gradually I moved to Extra Smooth then to Foreign Extra and it was that or nothing else but Foreign Extra is a bit too extra so I tried to find new ways to tweak it up a bit and make it taste a little less like bitter-leaf soup. I stumbled on this great recipe, tried it and I loved it so much.
I honestly don’t like trying new things. Change is a bit scary for me but if you know me well enough you’d know that a little change when it comes to alcoholic situations is not a problem for me. FYI, I’m not an alcoholic before you start thinking I need to start attending AA meetings.
So, let me share this amazing Guinness chocolate milk recipe with you
You’re going to need
½ cup of Guinness
½ cup of sugar (coconut sugar if you can find that)
½ cup of un sweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
a pinch of salt
1-2 cups of whole milk, coconut milk or almond milk
What to do
Whisk together all of the ingredients except for the milk in a saucepan.
Bring the mixture to boil over medium heat, whisking occasionally then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes until the syrup thickens.
You can either refrigerate the syrup until cool or just pour it right into a few glasses of cold milk while it is still warm for some hot Guinness hot chocolate. The amount of milk you pour your milk will dictate how chocolatey the chocolate milk will taste.
Stir the syrup into the milk and drink it all up. Drink it hot or cold its up to you but make sure you enjoy it to the last drop.
