Three Chocolate Options for Kids with a Milk Allergy

Growing up, chocolate milk was one of my favorite drinks. It still is. I remember watching a sitcom when I was younger where someone poured chocolate syrup in their mouth, took a swig of milk, and then swished the two ingredients around in their mouth. Of course I tried it. It was pretty awesome. I’m a little bummed that our little one won’t be able to do stupid stuff like that. With her allergy to cow’s milk, we wondered how or when she could taste the goodness that is chocolate. Fortunately there are plenty of options out there, but there are three products that particularly stand out in our household.

Chocolate Silk

This was the first chocolate product that we gave to our daughter. Since she can’t have cow’s milk or actual chocolate, Chocolate Silk worked out fine. First, it’s soy milk. Second, the chocolate flavoring comes from cocoa. If you’re like me, you might be wondering what’s the difference between chocolate and cocoa. The main difference between the two is that chocolate includes cocoa butter, while cocoa does not.
