Healthy Homemade Milo

This is a great recipe to make and store in the cupboard to use as needed. Use it to make a cold drink for afternoon tea, to add to your Healthy Mummy Smoothie or even for a hot drink for the kids.

A much healthier and nutritious version of the traditional store bought Milo, this recipe is courtesy of Tasheena Snow.

It’s packed with healthy nuts and seeds which will satisfy you and keep you feeling fuller for longer. Enjoy this as part of your meal plan (we love it as an evening snack) on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Healthy Homemade Milo
Instructions
  1. Add all nuts and seeds to a high power blender and blend until they become a fine powder. A coffee grinder would also be great for this if you want it extra fine but it still works if a little crunchy.
  2. Add cacao powder and coconut sugar and mix thoroughly. Test a little in some milk and add more cacao or coconut sugar to taste.
  3. Use about 1 tbsp in a glass of milk of your choice and stir briskly.
  4. Please note the mixture will not dissolve completely like normal ‘Milo’ because of the nuts and seeds.
  5. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 months in the fridge - and can also be stored in the freezer.
