It’s a firm favourite with Aussie kids and comes in an iconic green coloured tin. Can you guess what it is? YES! We’re talking about Milo!
There’s nothing quite like that grainy, malted chocolate powder. Intended for drinking purposes, it’s so often eaten straight from the tin with a sizeable spoon.
So grab an ice cold glass of milk (two teaspoons of Milo on the bottom and two more on top, please and thanks) and drink in these11 recipes that call for Milo. Deeeeelicious.
