  1. The Milo Thread

    Why, you ask? Because Milo is so great.

    You can do a lot of things with Milo, really. Drinking it, hot or cold, eating just the powder, put it into your baking ingredients, making various types of drink with it, basically, it's a wonder of joy! Some people may even go as silly as using milo with weird ass recipe.

    To the Asians (which is mostly the case, sometimes, to some people) we drink Milo almost constantly and it's like the source of everyday (energy) drinks. Huzzah!

    Post anything milo-related in this thread, recipes, whatever you can do with Milo, just have fun. Alright? Okay? Great.

    Have you been wondering what would be your lunch/dinner soon? No food to cook, or just too lazy to?

    Then Milo on Rice is for you!

    Why? Because it's delicious. Because it's cheap and yummy. And because you agreed to my questions above. It may seem disgusting, but hey, this is one of those 2 petot meals that's really good. Give it a go!

    Grab your Milo in the nearest Asian stores!

    I'd get one of those Milo Van Pack than make my own Iced Milo. Sometimes it tastes water, less sugar, too much sugar etc. At least, that pack would be consistent.

    On other news, yeah. We don't have Milo vans, but we had Milo booths when there's a sports tournament.

    What? Your country doesn't sell Milo?

    Make your own Milo!


    • 100ml rice malt syrup
    • 25g salted butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean powder
    • 1.5-2 teaspoons raw/dutch processed cacao powder


    1. Have a sheet of parchment ready, for a quick turn out of the toffee.
    2. Melt your butter in a medium heat cast iron/stainless steel frying pan.
    3. Add your rice syrup and stir them together until combined and bubbling.
    4. Let the rice syrup and butter bubble away slowly together for ~10 minutes. As soon as you detect a change to a darker golden colour, get it onto the baking sheet ASAP.
    5. Leave on a baking sheet to harden for 1/2 hour.
    6. Break shards of the praline up. Add your vanilla powder and cacao and blitz together for 30 seconds until a fine chocolate sand has formed.
    7. Pop it in a jar and it will keep nicely for a couple of weeks.

    To make cold Milo:

    1. Dissolve a heaped teaspoon into a bit of boiled water. Add milk and ice.

    To make hot Milo:

    1. Dissolve 1-2 heaped teaspoons and 200ml of milk per serving. Warm for a few minutes on the stove.

    To use as a topping:

    1. Sprinkle generously.

    This suddenly made me thinking. I dunno what Milo really is, never had it. But it sounds similar to cocoa powder.... meaning, you can probably do what we call "chocolate salami". Internet tells me, that it's Italian recipe, and I dunno about that, but this thing was crazy popular when I was young, cause it's damn easy to make and it is damn tasty.

    What you need:

    Cookies (simplest you can find) - 500 g.
    Eggs - 2.
    Butter - 200 g.
    Cocoa powder, or, in this case - MILO - 2 big spoons.
    Sugar - 1 glass.

    (Some people also add nuts to it, but I say fuck to that, just get +200 more grams of cookies)

    What you do:

    Crumble all the cookies into small pieces. When I was small, we did it by hand, which was actually a lot of work.

    Mix eggs with sugar.

    Add Milo, stir it well, so there are no hard parts left, and we got one chocolatey mass of stuff.

    Add butter, set it in low fire and keep stirring it so all the butter and all the sugar are completely melted. You can try it during that process - when you can't feel sugar grains anymore, it's ready. Turn fire off.

    Adding crumbled cookies into it, mix it really well.

    Put what you get into foil, or some other stuff. Actually, we used small plastic bags for it. It doesn't really matter - you just need something to keep it more or less in shape.

    And that's it. After that you put it in fridge for about 4-5 hours, and then you can take it out and cut and eat it like a salami - hence the name.

    Oh, and while it is being frozen, the pan you used to cook it is probably still covered in chocolatey mass that didn't fit any of the packages, and it's still warm, so you can eat that like a treat while waiting for the salami to get properly frozen - it's extremely tasty.

    There are three popular variations of Milo around here, as far as I know. :)

    Milo Dinosaur


    1. Add 3-5 tablespoons of Milo powder and 1.5 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to a glass. Fill the glass up to halfway with hot water. Add ice to fill the glass. Stir.
    2. Spoon 2 tablespoons of additional Milo powder on top, but don't stir it in. The powder will sink down in the glass, and create a crunchy texture.

    Milo Godzilla


    1. Add 3-5 tablespoons of Milo powder and 1.5 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk to a glass. Fill the glass up to halfway with hot water. Add ice to fill the glass. Stir.
    2. Top it up with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream/dollop of whipped cream.
    3. Spoon some additional Milo powder on top as a crunchy garnish.

    Milo NesLo


    1. Add 3-5 tablespoons of Milo powder, 1.5 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk and 1 packet of instant coffee to a glass. Fill the glass up to halfway with hot water. Add ice to fill the glass. Stir.

    And here I assumed Milo was like some very specific type of tea or something. Chocolate...well that simplifies things for me.
