This Paleo Chocolate Milk Syrup is simple to make and so delicious. Mix with your favorite nut milk or coconut milk for a sweet treat. Dairy free, low FODMAP, vegan, and naturally sweetened.
Chocolate syrup was a staple in my childhood fridge. Waiting to be mixed with some low-fat milk for a cool treat. This healthier version of the classic syrup is so simple to make and tastes just as good. Mixed with (not low-fat) almond milk or coconut milk, it is creamy, rich and delicious.
Ingredients for Chocolate Sauce
Lets talk about the ingredients. There are only a few.
Maple Syrup: This sweetener is great because it's thin and mild in flavor. This is not an overly sweet sauce so you can increase this a little if you like sweeter treats.
Cacao Powder: Gives this rich, chocolate flavor. Sifting is so important so it's not chunky.
Salt: a touch of salt to balance the sweetness
Vanilla: Just a little which helps enhance the chocolate flavor
Low FODMAP Chocolate Sauce
This was so easy to make low FODMAP. Using maple syrup as the sweetener keeps it low FODMAP and all the other ingredients are compliant as well.
This only takes a few minutes to make and then is stored in the fridge. Give it a good stir and then mix away. You can add as little or as much as you want to each glass. I would say it's about 8-10 servings.
I think this would also be so good on some ice cream and it's pretty tasty straight off a spoon 🙂 It's a definitely summer must!
