The cartons of milks available today vary widely in flavor as well as calories, protein and fat (stats are for an 8-ounce serving). We did our taste test with unsweetened versions of the milks and homemade chocolate syrup to find out which one would be the best for post-run chocolate milk.
Taste Test: Adds a slight nutty flavor and is a little thicker than most other milks.
Taste Test: Richer and not-too-thin—and does not taste like coconut.
Taste Test: Sweeter than others and the richest and thickest.
Taste Test: A distinctive flavor that may be an acquired taste.
Taste Test: Thinnest but allows chocolate to shine in hot cocoa.
Taste Test: Light and a little sweeter than most.
*Look for coconut milk beverage with the other milks as opposed to the cans used in cooking.
