      Its so nice to find recipes using soy milk instead of cows milk. I recently switched to soy milk, and havent really figured out ways to play around with it. You cant make drinks with the same measurements as you do with regular milk...sometimes it takes less sweetner when using vanilla, sometimes more with plain... and I find that soy milk takes on flavors a lot faster (with less ingredients) than cows milk. For this drink I had to use less sugar than suggested because I found that the vanilla soy milk was already quite sweet. If I added two Tablespoons of sugar I would have found it to be way too sweet :-) The cocoa was wonderful...!! Thanks :-) cant wait to try your other soymilk drinks!

      Thank you! My 6-year-old is on a lactose-free diet and there are certain things she feels very upset about not having. One is cocoa! We have heated up chocolate-flavored rice milk & it is okay, but this recipe is great and she was so excited to have cocoa from "powder" like everyone else! I was glad NOT to see a bunch of hard-to-find ingredients. I did double the recipe and cut the sugar as some reviewers suggested - for 2 cups of rice milk I used 6 tsps cocoa powder and 3 tbsps sugar. I also shook in a little vanilla-flavored nondairy creamer. It was great!
