Sweet & Salty Chocolate Shake

Growing up I was a milk fiend. I could drink a gallon a day if left to my own vices, the stuff was like crack to me. I would drink milk with damn near any meal (yeah I kept it real Kosher as a kid you can tell) and to this day still drink quite a bit of milk. 

The thing is, you just cant buy any brand of milk because often-times it is full of garbage hormones, drugs and steroids. I like to purchase Milk from reputable stores and from even more reputable brands. Spend a little time having a few taste tests between brands and see if you can tell the difference in what your buying. Well today is National Milk Day and with that we give you the Sweet & Salty Chocolate Milkshake. 

Combining sweet homemade Chocolate Syrup with a dash of Kosher Salt and Milk together will provide you with such a different tasting Shake, you will be truly grateful you tried this recipe out. For those that are truly skilled, bust out the Arbuelita chocolate and make a sauce from that, now that’s the business.

Enjoy National Milk Day! read more for the entire recipe...

½ cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
6 cups cold milk
Kosher salt

Make the chocolate syrup:
Combine the sugar and 1/3 cup water in a small saucepan.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then whisk in the cocoa powder until smooth.
Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
Let cool completely.

Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the chocolate syrup into each glass.
Add 1 1/2 cups milk and a generous pinch of salt.
Stir until the syrup and salt dissolve.
