Are you looking for a way to mix up Valentine’s Day while also showing someone you love them? Chocolate milk might be your answer! Chocolate is commonly included in Valentine’s Day, but chocolate milk? Maybe not so common. Chocolate milk has a lot of benefits, and we believe would make a great addition to your day of love, while also leaving you guilt free:
- Chocolate milk makes a great post-workout drink. It has everything you could need after exuding a lot of energy: carbohydrates, protein, electrolytes, and calcium. It also provides fluid to rehydrate.
- A low-fat chocolate milk actually has fewer calories and grams of fat than a full-fat white milk. While this may seem obvious, it’s reassuring that you can still drink chocolate milk guilt free.
- Chocolate milk and regular milk contain the same major nutrients. So you aren’t missing out on anything important for your health, but you are getting that sweet chocolate flavor. It’s a win win!
- There are some studies that suggest that people who are lactose intolerant may be able to tolerate chocolate milk better. If you are lactose intolerant, you may find comfort (emotionally and physically) in this fact.
Spice up your Valentine’s Day by sharing a tall glass of chocolate milk with your valentine, if you’re willing to share. 😉
