Horlicks Malted Milk Drink
Advantages: Tastes lovely, nutritious, helps you to sleep
Disadvantages: Not suitable for vegetarians
I am a shift worker so quite often I need to sleep at weird times throughout the day, at times when I am not always tired.
What is it?
Horlicks is an instant malted drink which can be made with either milk or hot water depending on your preference. It is said to help you sleep and it certainly does this for me. In addition to the sleep inducing benefits, a single mug of Horlicks is a great source of calcium and major vitamins, much better than popping a vitamin pill.
The Horlicks range includes Horlicks Original which is the more traditional product which most people will be familiar with. They also have a Horlicks Light which is a lower fat version, Horlicks Extra Light which is even lower in fat. They also produce various flavoured Horlicks such as chocolate, dreamy vanilla, cosy caramel and heavenly amaretto.
I normally buy my Horlicks from Tesco and a 500 gram tub will cost you £2.49 which I think is fairly reasonable.
Making The Drink
To make the drink you simply add two to three scoops of the powder to your mug, and then add hot (not boiling) water and stir. If you're making the original drink, then the instructions state that you should make it with hot milk
What Does It Taste Like?
I find that Horlicks is quite velvety and smooth to drink. The taste is instantly malty (reminds me of the inside of malteasers) and it is also quite sweet and creamy. Obviously the Horlicks tastes much creamier when you make it with milk but I still enjoy the varieties that you make with hot water.
I really would recommend Horlicks to anyone that has trouble sleeping or for anyone who fancies a change from their normal drink. I believe that Horlicks really does help me sleep, after drinking a mug; I tend to sleep the entire night through without waking up once. I also think that this product offers good value for money.
Summary: Sleepy Time....
