Chocolate Milk (whole) can provide essential vitamins and minerals, as well as protein and calcium to fuel your body. However, the simple sugars from the chocolate can raise your blood glucose levels, as can the simple sugars from table sugar added as an additive. Milk contains the milk sugar lactose, which may also increase your blood sugar. As a result, too much chocolate milk can lead to hyperglycemia.

How to get the most out of your chocolate milk
• Opt for sugar-free cocoa.
• Try adding plant-based sweeteners such as stevia.
• Prefer using a sugar-free variety of organic cocoa powder.
• Lactose-free milk and skimmed milk can replace regular milk to make it a much healthier option.
• Try limiting your chocolate milk intake to one glass per day.

Chocolate milk has a high sugar content, which can cause a spike in blood sugar levels when consumed. The sugar in chocolate milk is absorbed quickly by the body, resulting in a surge of glucose in the bloodstream. Drinking too much chocolate milk can lead to excessive blood sugar levels. Maintaining your blood sugar levels within the time in range is the key.
