"Chocolate Milk"

I stumbled onto this one by accident. I've always had a weakness for chocolate milk. Not so much hot cocoa, just nice rich creamy chocolate milk. Hadn't had any in ages and ages, and figured I'd never get any again. Then I started drinking low-fat soy milk in my Protein Shakes and discovered that the unflavored, unsweetened soy makes for a REALLY rich-tasting Protein Drink, along with the sugar-free syrups that you can put in coffee and so forth. And, I discovered this flavor called Chocolate Macadamia Nut (the brand is Pasano, and it's sold by some place on the west side of Washington state, I think). I am SO not kidding, this combination of soy milk and sugar-free Syrup fools MY tastebuds into thinking it's good ol' chocolate milk, and an eight-ounce serving is 50 calories and 2 sugars/carbs. I can indulge my weakness to my heart's content now, and never feel a shred of guilt again in my life!

Better yet, just today, I found almond milk at Walmart that's unsweetened and unflavored, and it's only 35 calories for an 8-ounce serving, 1 gram of carb, and NO sugars at all. Not as much Protein as the soy milk, but since I generally am consuming it with my Protein shake, it's more or less irrelevant.

Ahem. I'm sure you can all tell that I'm wildly enthusiastic about all this, by now... :)

Anyway, hope someone else enjoys 'chocolate milk' as much as I do.

When I have a few extra carbs to play with, and need a little extra Protein, I pick up little jugs of Nesquik 100 calorie chocolate milk. 8 ounces, 8g Protein, 13carbs, 2g fat.

chocolate milk is my one pre-surgery obsession that I've allowed to stay because it usually fits in my daily limits, gives me some protein and satisfies any sweet cravings that might crop up. I've also read that it is a good post-workout food. Thank you Prevention Magazine for that little bit of rationalization.

Ifound unsweetened chocolate Almond Milk @ Safeway. It's pretty good just add some sugarfree flavored Syrup, Carmel was good with it. I add unflavored Protein powder and carmel flavoring it was good.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
