What’s better the Coco Pops or the chocolate flavoured Coco Pops milk?
Gluten Free | Vegan | Nut Free
When was the last time you had a bowl of Coco Pops? If ever there is a food that yells “I’m a kid” it’s sugary breakfast cereals – Coco Pops, Fruit Loops, Frosties, Choco’s ….
Coco pops which is made from puffed rice coated in cocoa (or if you buy it from your grocery store, a chocolate flavouring) is the easiest breakfast cereal to recreate. From the rich cocoa flavour, to the crispyness of each puffed grain, down to turning your milk into a chocolate drink, this homemade healthier coco pops is the real deal.
Depending on what type of cocoa powder you use, you’re going to get varying degrees of chocolate richness. The raw cacao powders (like Health Food Whole Connections), yield a darker richer flavour; whilst your regular cocoa powder (like Cadburry’s) is going to yield a sweeter chocolatey flavour.
I added a teaspoon of Macca to this, but it is barely detectable and can be left out if you don’t have it on hand or prefer not to. If you do use it, it adds a little more nutrients but doesn’t alter the success of the recipe.
Take care when cooking it – you want a crisp result, not burnt, and these Coco Pops bake fast.
The recipe is naturally gluten free and vegan, and goes perfectly with almond milk.
