5 Must Try Milo Recipes that Malaysians love!

Milo has been one of the key essentials in most Malaysian households and it is also one of the most ordered drink in many kopitiams! If you’re like me & love Milo as much as I do, here are 5 other ways to enjoy Milo besides the usual boring way.


Milo Ice Cream
Picture from Cook Republic


2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
1 cup brown sugar
150g milk chocolate, chopped
4 tablespoons milo
1 teaspoon salt

In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, heat milk, cream and salt on medium; stirring occasionally until hot but not boiling. Remove from heat and cool for approximately 5 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well mixed. Slowly pour the cream mixture into the yolk mixture stirring constantly. Return the combined mixture to the saucepan on medium-low heat. Cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden/rubber spatula. Make sure you scrape the bottom of the pan to avoid scorching. At the end of 3 minutes, the mixture will start to steam and will appear thickened. This is the custard.

Remove the custard from the heat. Put the chocolate and milo in a large heatproof bowl. Pour over the hot custard and whisk until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour the custard through a strainer into a clean metal bowl. Cool completely.

Cover the bowl with clingfilm and chill in the fridge overnight (or at least an hour). When chilled, transfer to your ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Enjoy straight away or freeze in the freezer for up to a week.
