Chocolate Syrup I can feel good about

One of the baby steps I've taken lately is making my own chocolate syrup in an attempt at getting a product that is closer to real, whole food...  Not filled with all sorts of ingredients that I don't have a clue what they are, nor have the ability or patience to pronounce...  Simply cocoa, vanilla, a splash of filtered water, and raw honey.  (Read more about why "raw" honey at the bottom of this post.)  The kids love it and haven't noticed that I've switched out their commercial syrup for a healthier version to make their chocolate milk in the mornings.  Now if I could only find a way to get Justus to eat his veggies...

I've been craving chocolate milk lately but have been too cheap to buy the syrup because it wasn't on sale BOGO, and I know it goes on sale often enough to not pay full price.

But, I have all of those ingredients in my house now! I think I'll be enjoying some chocolate milk tonight! Yeah!

You have to play with the ratios, but once you get the hang of it its so yummy! i got this idea off of one of the yahoo groups i get emails from... probably discussingnt@yahoogroups.com (discussing Nourishing Traditions - a cookbook / nutrition book), but maybe it was the WAPFTampaBay@yahoogroups.com (Weston A. Price foundation of Tampa area). Both have been such great resources and I've learned so much from reading the articles and suggestions.
