First things first, it’s pronounced as mai-lou, not mee-lo. I don’t know if it’s just me but it drives me crazy each time I hear someone call my favourite drink in the entire universe wrongly. 

Determined to assemble the best collection of milo recipes on the planet, we scoured the Internet and found 20 milo recipes that will forever change how you look at this drink. It's not limited to just "hot or cold!" I feel so motivated now to enter the kitchen and create these Milo treats just so I could devour them. That’s a feat considering how lazy I am because I thrive on cereal and microwaveable-anything. 

‘Nuff said, and happy scrolling through this list. Bet you’ll be a convert even if you’re not entirely crazy about Milo. Be sure to check out the original creators of the recipes too in the links below.

1. Homemade Milo Ice-Cream

There's nothing better than a scoop or two of creamy ice-cream bursting with rich chocolate and malt flavours. The best part of getting hands-on is that you can go all "milo dinosaur" on it and pile on heaps of Milo powder if you like it more Milo-ish. 

Ingredients: 

  • Heavy cream
  • Milk
  • Egg yolks
  • Brown sugar
  • Milk chocolate
  • Milo powder
  • Salt

Store-bought marshmallows are just too mainstream. And boring. It’s so cool to know that you can make marshmallows from the comfort of your own home. I would volunteer as tribute and stuff myself silly with these pillowy homemade marshmallows dusted with Milo powder while playing Chubby Bunny with my friends. 

Ingredients: 

  • Sugar
  • Liquid glucose (or light corn syrup)

This is probably the easiest Milo snack you’ll ever make. No exaggeration. It’s so simple there’s no way anyone can screw up making these healthy, delicious slabs. Definitely the first recipe I’m attempting from this list of 20.   

Ingredients: 

  • Self-raising flour
  • Plain flour
  • Milo powder

6. Milo Brownies

Chocolate brownies bore me - they are almost the same everywhere. It pays more to bake your own Milo brownies because your taste buds will thank you for letting them experience a more complex set of flavours from the marriage of cocoa and Milo in your recipe. 

If this isn’t enough to convince you, consider that you’ll get to eat these 30 minutes after you start. Yes, baking time is included.

Ingredients: 

  • Milo powder
  • Eggs
  • Sugar
  • Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Cocoa powder
  • Plain flour
  • Butter

This is your mug of Milo with condensed milk in another physical form, only bigger and better. I would be more than happy to snag a bite off this glorious cupcake. These Milo cupcakes are way more economical than your minimum-$3-a-pop cupcake from the likes of Twelve Cupcakes or Plain Vanilla Bakery.

Tip: Leave the cupcakes in the oven slightly longer than instructed as per the recipe to achieve a crustier top.

Ingredients: 

Cupcake

  • Plain flour 
  • Caster sugar
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Milo powder
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sour cream 
  • Unsalted butter

12. Milo Porridge 

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_milo-porridge.jpgSource: Nestle  

I've tried this before the even lazier way with instant oats for a super quick meal at home. This may look like baby food but it’s not that disgusting taste-wise. 

It’s full of nutrients and tasted considerably decent with subtle hints of Milo. Some toasted nuts or fresh berries would definitely enhance the taste of this hearty bowl of Milo oats porridge. 

Ingredients: 

  • Oats
  • Low fat milk
  • Milo powder

13. Easy Fried Milo French Toast

This little food hack may just make your French toasts taste a whole lot better than if they were just plain old French toasts. Although soaking the pieces of bread in Milo sounds pretty quirky, those who love Milo should give this recipe a go for that unique sweet malty flavour. 

Ingredients: 

  • Evaporated milk
  • Milo powder
  • Egg
  • Vanilla essence
  • White bread (or whole meal bread)
  • Butter

From the picture above, which one do you think is the one you can DIY at home - the nondescript-looking one on the left or the one fully filled Milo powder on the right? 

Solely based on how they look, I’d prefer to eat the one on the right just because it looks more real and less laden with chemicals. Psst, you’re right if you guessed that’s the DIY version!

The only nougats that I’m familiar with are those sealed in wrappers from Golden Boronia. I never knew you could make your own nougats at home without any complex machines and tools. 

Truth be told, nobody says these fancy Milo nougat bars are easy to make; they are highly technical so do not be disheartened even if your first attempt doesn’t turn out as well as you’d expect. Just keep trying! 

Ingredients: 

  • Caster sugar
  • Water
  • Glucose syrup

Before you run off to the supermarkets to grab the ingredients required to make these divine Milo treats, here’s a #FunFact for you - Milo was actually founded in Australia in 1934 even though it is immensely popular in Asia and some of us may have even thought it was created in some Asian country.

We hope this exhaustive list of Milo recipes has been helpful for all you Milo fanatics out there. Have fun experimenting and tweaking your recipes to incorporate Milo because you’ll never know how it will turn out unless you give it a shot!
