Sure, Milo may not have been born here, but could there be a more Malaysian drink than Milo ais – besides teh tarik? We didn't think so. While teh tarik is best enjoyed as it is, there are many ways you can enjoy Milo besides adding condensed milk and ice. Here, we share ten of our favourites. 

With cold milk

1. With cold milk

Instead of hot water, pour cold fresh milk over Milo powder to produce a glass of milky Milo with chunky bits of chocolatey satisfaction.
3-in-1 Milo bar

2. 3-in-1 Milo bar

If you went to a boarding school, you might know this: Iron a three-in-one Milo packet, get a bar of pure Milo. Note: Eat at your own risk.
Milo agar-agar

3. Milo agar-agar

Make according to directions on the agar-agar packet, replace some of the required liquid with thick Milo and sugar, and then chill it in the refrigerator.
Milo toasties

4. Milo toasties

Toasted or plain, white bread complements Milo perfectly. Scatter Milo over some drizzled condensed milk or edge the slice with choki choki so the Milo powder doesn’t fall out.

5. Brown-Brown cocktail

The Locker & Loft's Milo-based cocktail is a big glass of Milo Dinosaur spiked with two shots of vodka. Nothing can go wrong here.

6. From a spoon

Go back to basics with this one. What’s better than prying up the Milo tin cover with a spoon, and then digging right into the chocolate goodness with said spoon?

Ice cold, topped with an impressive heap of Milo powder, the Milo Dinosaur showcases Milo at its flavourful best.
Curry Maggi Milo

8. Curry Maggi Milo

The next time you make some curry Maggi, sweeten the deal with a tablespoon or two of Milo. Apparently Milo acts as thickener for the soup.
Milo popsicle

9. Milo popsicle

Make a pot of nicely thick Milo, pour it into a popsicle container (Daiso, RM5) and add a dollop of condensed milk before popping it in the freezer.
Milo Dinosaur cake

10. Milo Dinosaur cake

Among all the baked goods inspired by the green tin of ‘nutritious chocolate malt drink’, Milo Dinosaur cake from Nutmeg takes the cake.
