Finally you can prepare your own homemade Milo using our fantastic Thermomix!
Milo is a Nestle product, a chocolate and malt powder that is mixed with hot or cold water or milk to produce a very popular beverage known all over the world with the name of Milo.
Milo is very popular in Australia, Malaysia and New Zealand. In these places a large variety of products have been created using this chocolate malt powder, from chocolate bars to cookies, from UHT beverage to energy drinks.
Nestle claims it offers essential vitamins and minerals and it has long been known as an energy beverage strongly associated with sports and good health.
But, are we really sure it is so healthy? That's why this recipe is special, genuine and absolutely needed! You will only use this recipe after trying it :-).
I took the recipe from the Forum Community where it was posted by cathy79. The recipe is gluten and dairy free, and this means it is even more intolerance free than the bought one! :-) However it contains many nuts (brazil nuts, cashews, pecan nuts, almonds) and many people can also suffer from an allergy to them.
I found it amazing because we have not got Milo in Italy (and I think in all Europe, please tell me if this is wrong!) and I and my family are enjoying it so much, especially my daughters who found in it an alternative to more popular Nesquik.
Enjoy it to the fullest! Add it to milk, even soy milk or rice milk if you cannot take lactose! :-)
You can use Milo to prepare delicious Milo Biscuits! Please send me your own recipes with Milo, I can't wait to try this special cocoa powder in other preparations! ;-)
- 3 tablespoons Linseeds
- 2 tablespoons Sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoons Sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 1/3 cup Almonds
- 1/4 cup Brazil Nuts
- 1/4 cup Cashews
- 1/4 cup Pecan Nuts
- 1 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup Rapadura
How to prepare Thermomix MiloStart by grinding linseeds and sesame seeds into a fine powder. Approx. 20 Sec. Speed 9.
Place everything else except the cocoa powder and rapadura in the bowl and blend. 5-10 Sec. Speed 9, checking and scraping down until a fine powder. Don't blend too far as you don't want paste.
Add cocoa powder and rapadura and mix through. 3 Sec. Speed 7, checking and scraping.
I helped mine with the spatula a little. Taste a little as more sugar can be added if necessary.
cathy79's adviceUse exactly like milo. This recipe filled my 450g Milo tin so it does make a lot. Keep in the fridge for about 2 months.
The texture is exactly like milo, with a very fine crunch. It is a much darker brown, and has a deeper chocolate flavour so may need a little more/less than original milo usage.
Could be used to flavour custard, adding great nutritional value as well.
