I usually don’t drink (vegan, obviously) milk. I use it for baking, in overnight oats, or eat it with granola but I don’t go to the fridge and take a sip of milk. Until now.

This Chocolate Hazelnut Milk tastes like Nutella Milk! It’s so good. I’ve drunk the whole bottle over the course of two days because it was so flavorful and delicious! I just couldn’t stop.

Whenever I was in the mood for chocolate or something sweet, I’ve taken a sip of this milk. Craving satisfied.

Step 5: Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag. 

Expert tip: A good nut milk bag is even more important than a powerful blender. I’ve found that a nylon nut milk bag works best! The milk is perfectly smooth and silky.

All done! Super easy, right? The chocolate hazelnut milk is best served chilled.

It’s delicious to sip on its own, to add to chocolate granola, use it in chocolate overnight oats or chocolate muffins.
