Hot chocolate 

Before we start you will need: 70% dark chocolate flakes, your choice of milk (cows, oat, almond, soya or coconut), vanilla and cinnamon - and a saucepan, hot chocolate maker or chocolate shaker. 

On the hob or in the hot chocolate maker 

Heat 200ml of your preferred milk on the hob, taking care not to boil it as this destroys nutrients and affects the taste. Or if you are using the hot chocolate maker then add your preferred milk to it – we recommend 200ml for one cup. 

Add around 8 teaspoons of 70% dark chocolate flakes.

Add ¼ tsp of vanilla paste and ¼ tsp of cinnamon. 

Start your maker, or, if making on the hob, stir well until fully dissolved. 

In the Shaker 

Warm 200ml of your preferred milk in the Shaker (lid off) in the microwave. 

Add around 8 teaspoons of 70% dark chocolate flakes, and add ¼ tsp of vanilla paste and ¼ tsp of cinnamon. 

Make sure the lid is pressed in, and then secure fully to the cup. 

Shake for 10 seconds – and you’re ready to enjoy your smooth, frothy hot chocolate.

Cold chocolate milk or milkshake - in the Chocolate Shaker

Before we start you will need: 70% dark chocolate flakes, your choice of milk (cows, oat, almond, soya or coconut), cinnamon, vanilla and a chocolate shaker (or you can use a saucepan or hot chocolate maker). 

Start with a small hot chocolate; add milk up to level 2 (about 100ml), then add 5 teaspoons of 70% dark chocolate flakes. 

Put the shaker in the microwave (without the lid) for half a minute (or heat up milk on the hob and add it to the flakes).

Add ¼ tsp of vanilla paste and ¼ tsp of cinnamon.

Make sure the lid is pressed in and then secure fully to the cup. 

Shake for 10 seconds or until all the flakes are dissolved and then top up with cold milk. 

To make an iced chocolate milk, add a couple of ice cubes to it.

To make a milkshake, add ice cream instead of the ice cubes. 

We recommend adding 3 mini scoops or teaspoons of ice cream, as a big scoop will not melt in the already cooled down chocolate. 

Give it another quick shake - and you have an ice-cold chocolate milk or milkshake.
