Emily Von Euw’s Chocolate Mylk Recipe From 100 Best Juices, Smoothies and Healthy Snacks! (and a Pre-Release Giveaway!)

Cover Photo

I have a confession to make that I don’t actually own this book, yet! BUT, if it’s anything like Emily’s last book, Rawsome Vegan Baking (review here) I will gaze at it for hours and not be able to put it down. Seriously, her recipes are amazing and her photography is absolutely stunning. So, because I love Emily and her work, I’ve agreed to share a recipe from her book with you here, right before the book is released on the 9th of this month.

Chocolate Mylk

Chocolate Mylk

Chocolate. Mylk. Need i say more?

Makes: 4½ cups (1 L)

Follow the recipe for spiced mylk, adding 1–2 tablespoons (28–56 g) of cacao powder and, if you like, 1 tablespoon (28 g) of maca powder.

Spiced Mylk

  • 1 cup (125 g) raw nuts, seeds or coconut meat
  • 3 cups (237 mL) water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of pink Himalayan crystal salt
  • 3–5 pitted dates

Cover the nuts or seeds (if using) in water and let them soak for 6 hours, then rinse and discard the soak water. Blend the soaked nuts, seeds or fresh coconut meat with the all the other ingredients until smooth, frothy and white. Strain through a nut mylk bag or cheesecloth (or leave as is). Store in the fridge in a sealable glass container for up to one week.

  1. I’ve never been a smoothie drinker–i’ve had less than five in my life but this book makes me think I should give them a whirl! Everything looks delish!

  2. Photos are beautiful. I am looking forward to making this Mylk. Would love to have this book in my library of vegan cookbooks!!!

  3. I’ve seen recipes and photos from this book floating around the blog world recently, and I’m so into it. I’d love to win it!

  4. Loves smoothies, its such an easy way to get my toddler to eat her greens, I know we as a family would love this book 🙂

  5. I have just started my trip down the road of eating a plant-based diet. I love animals and I love finding ways to eat food that is plant-based and delicious!

  6. Wow, those pix are gorgeous! And I’m having a brainstorm for some seriously good hot chocolate. Make the chocolate mylk, then heat some up a mug in the microwave. Mmmmmmm!

  7. This looks amazing! I have a Vitamix and I am getting a juicer for Christmas. This would be the “icing on the vegan cake”!

  8. Nourishing and delicious looking treats for any time of the day (or night!). Thank you for sharing recipes – I just ran out and bought a nut mylk bag!!
