Milo 3 in 1

You will be familiar with this name ‘Milo 3 in 1’ if you are from or know someone from Malaysia or Singapore! I grew up with this and looooooove it! Milo 3 in 1 are pre packaged sachets with Milo, creamer/milk powder and sugar and all you need to do is add hot water (or add hot water/cold water and ice if you want it cold). It tastes much lighter than the usual Milo + milk and is just so easy to prepare! I sometimes find the sachets in Chinese grocery shops here, however they taste really different from the ones in Malaysia. As it contains dairy, the Malaysian Milo 3 in 1 sachets are something that we haven’t been able to bring back home after trips to Malaysia! Β This is my version, which isn’t as sweet as the original Milo 3 in 1 sachets that I’ve grown up with (as my ageing tastebuds prefer less sugar!), but is amazingly satisfying and brings back all my childhood memories! This makes it so easy to get my Milo hit (as the boys in my house are always guzzling up the fresh milk in the house! This is also a great gift idea!

‘Ribena’ Syrup

I LOVE RIBENA! This was my only craving while I was pregnant! My husband used to think Ribena was made of Ribenaberries – then found out it was made of blackcurrants. I really wanted to make a homemade version for the boys to try, but unfoooortunately I have never seen blackcurrants sold here in Australia, so I had to improvise a bit!

Frothy Hot Milo

It’s no secret that I LOVE MILO! I love a good hot Milo especially in winter! I lived on this when I was pregnant too!! I usually make my hot Milo by mixing a few teaspoons of Milo with some boiling water, then topping up with milk, then microwaving it to get it piping hot. But of course, the Thermomix makes this much easier (without Milo debris spilling all over the kitchen bench whilst trying to mix it into the mug) and adds a beautiful frothiness! By adding water, I find it makes this hot drink really deliciously light – I find it too heavy with 100% milk, however if you prefer it super creamy, then just replace the water with milk.

Cold Kicker Drink

This is aΒ greatΒ remedy to kick that cold in the butt!! The cayenneΒ pepper is fantastic, really hits the back ofΒ your throat and feels like it’s killing all the bad bugs in there!!

You can use 1 or 2 lemons/knobs of ginger/garlic cloves – the more, the stronger – I use more when I feel really really blah (and sometimes add a little bit more honey to compensate!!)

Add all ingredients to bowl

Cook for 5 minutes/100 degrees/Speed 2

Either drink with the ‘chewy’ blitzed bits (these bits are great for you!), or you can strain before drinking.

You could either put it in jars and keep in the fridge. I pour this into a big jug and drink it throughout the day at room temperature.
