If you’re a big Star Wars fan AND you read blogs, you’ll know that there are a million recipes for the ever iconic Blue Milk – or Bantha Milk – floating around the internet, and will also know that mine will probably just get lost amongst the madness.
However, after seeing THREE different ones in a row whilst scrolling through Pinterest one afternoon, I just *had* to make a hot chocolate version. My long-term readers will know about my love of hot chocolates (and how it’s particularly strong around this time of year!), and I just couldn’t let it rest, so here we are!
Honestly, it wasn’t easy developing this recipe. Because I wanted to colour this drink, I knew it needed to start out white, which meant I needed to use actual chocolate. I tried a few times to use and melt real chocolate, but it ended up being too fiddly and it just took too long.

When I have hot chocolate, I want to be able to quickly whip it up before settling down to watch a movie or read a book, not slave over the stove for ages whilst a big chunk of chocolate melts. To solve this problem, I opted for an instant white chocolate mix, which I will link in the recipe.
I’ve been wanting to share Star Wars related recipes and DIY projects on the blog for a long time now, but none of my ideas have worked out until now. Hopefully, in 2021, I am able to bring you more Star Wars related posts because I have really fallen in love with this entire franchise.
I have loved every moment I have spent watching the movies and TV shows related to it, reading other people’s content about it, scrolling through all the memes about it, and reading way too many online discussions about the smallest details about many different storylines 🙊 Anyway, let’s get onto the recipe!
YOU WILL NEED:
For ONE cup:
♡ One sachet of Nestle Milky Bar Hot Chocolate
♡ 1/4 cup water
♡ 1 tsp sugar
♡ 3/4 milk
♡ 1 tsp peppermint flavour extract
♡ Chefmaster Neon Brite Brite Liqua-Gel Food Colour
♡ Mini marshmallows or whipped cream (optional, but always a plus!)
1. Empty the hot chocolate sachet into a mug, and add your teaspoon of sugar.
2. Boil a 1/4 cup of water, pour it into your mug and stir until everything is dissolved.
3. Add in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract.

4. Heat up 3/4 cup of milk – either on the stove or in short bursts in the microwave – then carefully pour it to your mug and stir.
5. Add one drop of your food colour into your mug and mix thoroughly. Decorate with mini marshmallows or whipped cream if you’re feeling like something extra sweet (it certainly looks more appealing than what Luke had to drink, that’s for sure! 😅) – then enjoy! 😋
I know not everyone is a fan of peppermint, but I thought it was fitting for not only the colour but also this time of year. However, you could try a range of different flavour extracts with this drink 🙌
You could also make this recipe using real chocolate if you’re a more patient person than I am! You would get a much richer flavour. I can’t guarantee how similar the colour would turn out as I haven’t tried it, but judging by the hot chocolate recipes that I read online, it seems that a lot of people love making their regular hot chocolates using real chocolate and melting it on the stove, which was a huge surprise to me!
I’ve got the biggest sweet tooth out of anyone I know – random workers are always surprised when they come inside our house and all my stuff is shaped like candy, filled with it, or decorated by it – but I don’t think I could drink hot chocolates made melted chocolate 😳
Before you go, tell me: how do YOU make your hot chocolates? 👇
Until next time,

I’m not a Star Wars fan, but my husband is and I LOVE a good hot chocolate. This might just be the perfect compromise lol We’re definitely going to have to give it a try.
This DOES sound like the perfect compromise then! ☺️ Although, how can you *not* like Star Wars?! 😯
This looks like an interesting recipe for hot chocolate. It is also quite simple to make and am sure kids will find it fascinating as well. Wonderful share indeed.
I don’t know anything about kids, but if they don’t like peppermint, just swap it out for a different flavour extract! ✨

The ‘Geek’ in me is ‘Geeking Out’ over this! We threw a Star Wars themed Birthday party a couple years ago (back when we could have things like that) and wished we had these to serve!
Ahh, a Star Wars themed party sounds AWESOME! 😍🙌✨
Oh Wow! This is soooo clever! Well done you! I will definitely try this out with me 2 kids. They will go bananas! lol!
Thank you, I’m so glad you like it ☺️ If you don’t think they’ll like peppermint, just swap it out for a different flavour extract!
This looks so cute for Star Wars fans and fans of hot chocolate in general. I’ll give your recipe a try!
Thank you! I do *love* anything that’s choc mint flavoured 😋
I admit, when I first saw this at the park I was taken back a little. Blue & green milk? Ewww. But I hear it’s quite nice.
I’m not sure what park you’re referring to 😅 I’m assuming something Disney related? I’ve never been there, so I’m not sure what that tastes like, so I highly doubt that this recipe tastes anything like that, just keep that in mind!
Okay, you got me again cause I have never heard of Bantha Milk or Blue Milk before. But what a fun recipe for anyone who loves the color blue or wants to create a star wars themed light saber drink! Plus I love hot chocolate so I am in to try it!
Haha it’s okay, Star Wars fans will know 😊 Yes, you could definitely make larger amounts and pour them into tall, thin glasses so they look like lightsabers! Great idea!
Blue milk! I’ve never tried hot white chocolate but I’m always tempted because Starbucks has one, maybe one day. I use hot cocoa powder to make my hot chocolate. ♥
Ooh, I bet Starbucks’ version is really good! I always have hot cocoa powder in mine too 😋
Oh wow, now that certainly is different. I think my kids would probably enjoy this. They’d get excited about the colour too.
Thank you! I was very happy with the bright colour ☺️
