If infants could utter one word, we would probably be hearing a lot of “milk”. Milk is considered as a whole food simply because of its nutrition profile. High in protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals, it barely lacks any nutrients. Although, as appealing as it may sound, sipping on milk could be unpalatable. Some people dread the taste of milk and are averse to it. Good news is, we can add a whole lot of ingredients to milk to make it toothsome. All you need is little knowledge and enthusiasm, and you will be ready with your next generation milk.
HOW TO ALTER YOUR MILK
- Flavours: – Fruity, chocolate, strawberry, butterscotch, vanilla, caramel, rose, and pan are just a few of the flavours that are available out there. A more nutritious alternative is to drink natural flavours like cardamom or cinnamon/nutmeg/mint/turmeric/honey milk.
- Shakes: – Because of its primary constituent — milk — milk shakes are a high-protein source of nutrition. Shakes include carbohydrates, which offer energy. Drinking milk shakes also include fruits, which are rich in vitamins and dietary fibres, which aid in digestion, cleansing, and the development of the immune system. If you want to produce drinkable yogurt, mix milk into your plain yogurt or fruit yogurt.
- Colouring: – You may use it to get your kids to enjoy milk in a fun manner. Instruct them to use the squeezy bottles to put a few drops of food colouring into their cup of milk.
- Ice cubes: – Ice cubes coloured with food colouring are an easy method to get your child interested in drinking milk, whether it is flavorful or plain. Your child will be delighted when you dress up a drink in his or her favourite colours with colourful ice cubes.
- Straws: – The market is flooded with flavoured straws. While drinking, you may add flavour to the milk by dipping the straw in and stirring it. See the delight on your child’s face as the milk miraculously transforms when you add a few straws to the glass.
- Dry fruits and nuts: – Adding dried fruits to milk is a quick and easy way to boost the nutritional value and flavour of the beverage. Sprinkle some chopped almonds, raisins, dates, walnuts, pistachios, or cashews into your milk for an extra dose of protein and fibre. Dry fruits are high in nutrients and provide a rich source of fibre, vitamins, and minerals for the milk.
