Version 4
We do vance's chocolate flavored milk substitute. We buy it at a local health food store. My daughter adds a few marshmallows and we still count it as free.

Version 5
I sometimes make low pro chocolate milk using Dairy Free-not sure of the spelling. It is on the Pku Perspectives site but I bought it at clinic. I believe it can be used to make hot chocolate. The Pku Perspectives site gives the phe content.

I've been using So Delicious coconut milk and creamer to make hot cocoa, and it's never been yummier! The version I make is very close to your Version 3, only I add 2 TBS of the creamer to the agave and cocoa paste.
