You can either say Schokoladenmilch or more often its just called Kakao (or at least as often as Schokoladenmilch).

Why Schokoladenmilch and not just Schokolademilch?

Languages are like that. Is she drinking? is Trinkt Sie?

In my region of Germany we are simply saying "Schokomilch".

Some just use a brand name (like Kleenex for paper napkins). They would ask for "Kaba". For a chocolate - milk beverage I heard people ask for a "Schoki"
