This is another recipe my hubby likes. He's from Brooklyn so this is something he's had growing up. This makes one serving, but you can double the recipe. Make sure all your ingredients are cold. I use a straw to drink mine..it's so tasty!

    Variation: If you can't find non-dairy chocolate syrup, mix together 1 1/2 tsp. unsweetened cocoa (Dutch process is recommended) add one tbsp. sucanate or alternative sweetener of your choice. Add about 2 tbsp. of non-dairy milk to make a thick syrup.
