Enjoyed hot or cold, the Nestlé Milo Powder is a South African favourite!
Enriched with calcium from milk and minirals from malt, the Nestle Milo Powders are perfect for growing bodies. Not to mention, you can spice things up (or cool them down) by turning your milo into ice-cream. See the recipe below.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
1 cup brown sugar
150g of chopped milk chocolate
4 tablespoons milo
1 teaspoon salt
Using a heavy bottomed pan, start by heating the milk, cream and salt on a medium heat. Stirring occasionally, make sure it’s hot, but not boiling. Once ready, remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.
Grab a large bowl and whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until mixed properly. Then pour the cream mixture into the yolk mixture, stirring contantly. Return the combined mixture to the saucepan on medium-low heat and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly with a wooden 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, which is the custard. Once ready, 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 a week.
