Milo Easy Cool | The Perfect Cold Milo

My whole family loves Milo. It is something that the boy and I grew up with and even now, our Lil Pumpkin loves the sweet chocolatey taste of an ice-cold Milo :) I know some parents do not like to give their children cold drinks for fear of them falling ill or catching a chill, but living in a tropical country, there's nothing like a cold drink to refresh you on a blistering hot day!

I drink Milo twice a day, and always make me an ice-cold one.
It's a 5-step process, more if you don't use the convenient 3-in-1 sachet packets. Firstly we have to empty the 3-in-1 Milo powder into a cup, add hot water, then stir. AND then, add ice and lastly cold water to get a cup of ice Milo.

However, with the new Milo Easy Cool, it really is as the name suggests, so much easier!

If you are using Milo Easy Cool shaker bottle {currently free with every purchase of Milo Easy Cool pack}, you can make the perfect cold Milo in 3 easy steps. Just empty the convenient Milo Easy Cool sachet, add cold water, and shake!!! The shaker bottle has markings to indicate the exact amount of cold water to use.

Why do I say it is the perfect cold Milo with Milo Easy Cool?

If you make a cold Milo the traditional way, there is usually a sticky layer of undissolved Milo powder at the bottom of your cup no matter how much you stir. I don't understand why.. such a waste! Also, if you leave it out, there's a layer of melted ice... and that causes the cold Milo to be a bit bland because of the extra water from the melted ice. Arrgh! #firstworldproblems

Using Milo Easy Cool, the powder completely dissolves in the cold water, and there is an evenly-mixed, delicious cold Milo drink to enjoy. No lumps, clumps or extra ice needed. Perfect!! #firstworldproblemsolved :) As a busy mum, even if it is just cutting down 2 steps, those extra minutes saved are extra minutes spent with your kid. And that's pretty perfect too...

Milo Easy Cool is currently running a contest with amazing prizes like iPad 2 and Sony PS Vita for users who submit their videos demonstrating "It's So Easy to be Cool - If You Know How". Check out Milo's Facebook page for more information.

Now I know my hubby would love that if it tastes like chocolate milk & on a nice hot day why not? It sounds like its half slushy & half milk. How interesting that the ice wouldn't melt right away. Anyway, thanks for stopping by. My Dad raised me to be proud of our name & never let anyone drag it through the mud without good cause. There was no cause so I stood up for myself & brought that egotistical maniac down, and thank you for mentioning that. Have a great day!

I have never heard of this drink! I will have to check it out! It really sounds like something my girls would love. I just bought a gallon of chocolate milk on Sunday and it is already gone. If this is as chocolately, I'm sure they'd love it too!

Brandi: yeah it is a delicious and quite healthy drink I reckon :)

Angeline: indeed indeed!

Summer: I used to bring lots back when I was living overseas too!! haha.. a staple for sure..

XmasDolly: it really is yummy :) would be great as an ice-blended drink too.
