Vegan chocolate milk can be made from coconuts, seeds, many different types of nuts and grains, and even peas. Here’s how it works: Plants are ground into a milk and chocolate is added. It’s so good, it’s like, “Was I even living before I tried this?!” No.
Chocolate dairy milk—on the other hand—comes from female cows who endure painful and traumatizing mutilations like de-horning and tail-docking on farms. They’re repeatedly sexually abused by workers, who insert arms and tools into their anuses and vaginas to inseminate them, and they experience the deep and unbearable pain of their newborn babies being torn away from them shortly after birth—and this happens over and over again. Then, these sensitive animals are hooked up to machines and pumped for their milk.
This cycle continues for years, until their milk production declines, at which point they’re transported to slaughterhouses in disgusting, crowded trucks and stabbed to death. And then, workers add some chocolate to their stolen milk …
That’s why vegan chocolate milk is super-cool and so good that when I’m not drinking it, I’m thinking about drinking it. Hey, wanna talk about options?! Because here they come:
This non-heart-shaped box of chocolate has protein, carbs, fiber, some healthy fat and is enriched with calcium and vitamins so it might be the most romantic box of chocolate you could give someone for Valentine’s Day because it says, “I want you to enjoy sweet, delicious chocolate on this Valentine’s Day and I also want you to live a long healthy life so you might enjoy a lot more boxes of chocolate on a lot more Valentine’s Days…forever.” Only it says it much smoother than we just did. #valentineday #allahjärtansdag
Life update: Had my first major allergic reaction. Yesterday I came home to find that I had a rash/hives all over the inside of my cheek and later in the evening my lips slowly began to swell. I ended up taking some Benadryl and the symptoms didn't go away, but they also didn't get worse so I went to bed. This morning when I went to the bathroom to check on my mouth, my lips resembled those of Kim K…Luckily, my reaction wasn't severe enough to affect my breathing and after a trip to the hospital, I'm all good! Anyways, here's a picture of some pea-based protein milk for y'all! @ripplefoods #ripple #ripplemilk #ripplechocolatemilk #peabasedprotein #plantbasedprotein #dairyfree #dairyallergy #allergyfriendly

Moove over, dairy—because we’re so over you. Vegan milk sales have increased in the U.S. by 61 percent over the last six years as sales of dairy “products” continue to decline. S’like, why destroy the planet, torture sweet and sensitive animals, and chug hormones, pus, and cholesterol (among other disgustingness) when we could just drink PERFECT VEGAN CHOCOLATE MILK?
And while you’re ditching dairy milk, don’t forget to swap dairy cheese for vegan cheese, too. Unfortunately, they don’t make any chocolate flavors on that front (yet), but there are tons of delicious vegan cheeses to explore in the meantime!
