My favorite way at home to have a chocolate drink is to add rich, chocolaty Ovaltine to my hot cup of coffee. I'm a huge coffee fan! I do not like my coffee black. I always add a little something to my coffee. When I need a chocolate kick I add 4 Tbsp of Ovaltine (80 calories) to my cup of coffee and then just 1-2 tsp of milk or creamer. This is a cheap luxury! The warm chocolaty coffee relaxes me and gives me immediate comfort.
Now why not? You are probably thinking that chocolate milk is just adding pure sugar to their milk! Well it is with some products but not with Ovaltine. For us, using Ovaltine is like drinking a glass full of extra vitamins & minerals. I'm not sure that the husband or children really realize what is in Ovaltine. Besides getting calcium, Vitamin D, etc from the milk they are also getting 12 extra vitamins & minerals just from adding in Ovaltine. It is an excellent source of Vitamin E & Iron and a good source of Vitamins A & C.
