Oliver Makes a Hot Chocolate with Arla Lactofree (+ Competition)
To celebrate the launch of Arla’s Lactofree milk into the UK’s leading coffee shop chain Costa, my son, Oliver, 9, has created his favourite hot chocolate recipe for you in this post and the video below using the lactose free milk.
My son prefers Arla’s whole milk (the Arla varieties also come in Skimmed and Semi-Skimmed) and are all without lactose which can prove hard to digest. These Lactofree milks are easier to digest for those who may be lactose intolerant or who have a sensitive gut.
Oliver gave the milk the thumbs up saying it had the same taste as his usual milk. There was no unexpected flavour or after-taste when he drank it straight in a glass, or when he rustled up his own hot chocolate recipe.
To make his hot chocolate recipe you will need:
1 cup of Arla whole milk (we measured it in the large Costa cup you can buy in select stores and supermarkets)
4 teaspoons of cocoa powder
4 teaspoons of sugar
Stir the cocoa powder and sugar into the cold milk then pop into a saucepan on a medium heat and whisk until smooth and blended. Remove the pan from the heat just before it boils over and ensure it’s cool enough for your child to drink. Oliver couldn’t wait so drank it with his teaspoon at first.
You can of course order the drink or ask for Arla Lactofree milk in any of your usual drinks in Costa across the UK.
