I’m going to take a wild guess, and bet that you’ve never put chocolate milk in raspberry tea. I have, multiple times, and now I’m hoping to start a “chocolate milk in raspberry tea” revolution!
Honestly? My idea to add chocolate milk to a steaming cup of brewed raspberry tea was an accidental invention. Not too long ago, I reached in the fridge and without looking, poured chocolate milk into my tea, instead of regular milk, as I typically do.
The result? I’m not sure it’s an accidental invention that will change the world, but I did get a unique and really yum way to enjoy brewed hot raspberry tea.
And it makes sense, when you think about it, considering how many desserts combine chocolate and berries. And, of course, although most Americans don’t add any sort of milk to their tea, many people in countries such as Great Britain and various Asian cultures usually add milk to their brewed teas.
Putting chocolate milk in raspberry tea is just a maverick twist to the more traditional way of drinking tea with regular milk. My preference for chocolate milk is Kroger’s Carbmaster brand, which has only 6 net carbs for each 8-ounce serving.
Bigelow’s Raspberry Royale Black Tea and Red Raspberry Herb Tea are shown, but I also really like Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger Herbal Tea. A friend recently gave me a tin of Brew La La Organic Raspberry Green Tea, which also would be excellent brewed and then mixed in with some chocolate milk.
As for ratios, I typically add about 3 ounces of chocolate milk to 4 or 5 ounces of raspberry tea. I hope you’ll open up your mind, turn traditional tea-drinking on its head, and try putting chocolate milk in raspberry tea!
