My cure for a tummy ache!
Member Name: MsTricia
Advantages: Lovely for bed time cup!
Disadvantages: Bit more money than other hot chocolate drinks...
I absolutely LOVE this hot chocolate! Over the years I have tried other brands, like cadburys or Horlicks as an alternative malt drink and about 8 years ago I settled on milo and have stuck with it ever since. If I ever had horrible period pains or just an upset tummy when younger my mums reply was always "have a hot drink" and I'd usually think she would say it to keep me quiet but in recent years I have to admit a hot drink really does ease up the pain and shift the wind from my stomach and milo is the drink that always does the trick.
How I make it...
-Add about 3 tea spoons of milo powder to the mug.
-After boiling the kettle, pour in the water to fill about 2/3 of the mug.
-Add condensed milk (yes it's sweet but makes it really thick and creamy, and as it's cold will make the hot chocolate not too hot) but continue stirring whilst pouring it in as the condensed milk will just settle at the bottom. I normally pour this in out of a tin in which case I'd estimate it at about 3 tablespoons worth of condensed milk or it can be done easier out of a tube.
To be honest this can depend on taste as some people may not like the sweetness of condensed milk and prefer to add normal cows milk and then sugar (which is how my sister likes it) but it's good not to make it too milky as I don't think milo blends as nice flavour wise but each to their own.
My personal experience is that this is my ideal hot chocolate and no hot chocolate drink from anywhere else (starbucks, pret a manger etc) even compares! As a result I always have a tin of milo in my cupboard as a standard as I'm not a tea person so this is my preferred daily hot drink (although I may occasionally drink others!)
It can be bought from wide variety of supermarkets, sainsburys, tesco, etc and i've seen it in quite a few corner shops with a 200g tin costing about £2.69.
Summary: 5/5 for sending me off to bed :)
