There's no doubt that milk is an essential part of a daily diet for millions of Americans. And to help ensure that kids of all ages enjoy their next glass of milk, we asked junior chef Santiago Osuna to share two of his favorite ways to add some flavor to his milk, using just a handful of ingredients and a few minutes' cook time. Take a look as he walks us through his berry milk and foamy ancestral Mexican hot chocolate recipe!
