2 1/4 cups 2-percent milk

4 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons light agave nectar

Kosher salt

1/4 cup chia seeds

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Cook the milk, chocolate, cocoa powder, agave and a pinch of salt in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the chocolate melts and the cocoa dissolves, 6 to 8 minutes.
