One of my little guys had strep throat this past week. He had a very sore throat and not much of an appetite. I hate it when they’re sick… After our Dr. visit, we stopped at the grocery store to fill our prescription and I grabbed the ingredients to make my son his favorite drink, a Chocolate Cream Soda. (I knew there was no way, he would turn that down!)
In the past, this drink was referred to as a chocolate egg cream. Funny thing, is there’s no egg or cream in the drink! It’s made with Chocolate, milk and seltzer water.
My version is almost the same as the original, except I use TruMoo Chocolate milk, my own carbonated water and a squirt of chocolate syrup for that extra double chocolate flavor, then top it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and chocolate shavings. Yum! (Even though I personally try to say away from dairy, My kids love their milk and there is no resisting the creamy deliciousness of this drink!)
