Thermobexta’s Smilo

smilo

This awesome Milo-like chocolate drink powder recipe for the Thermomix is additive-free and super simple!

Smilo is so simple to make, taking just a few minutes and using just three ingredients. It is free gluten, dairy, grains, nuts, refined sugar and additives. Added bonus is it’s also vegan.

The recipe makes a large batch which will keep well for months in an airtight container in the pantry.

Once you’ve made it, it’s a simple case of stirring a couple of teaspoons into a glass or (warm or cold) milk!

It will dissolve in warm milk, but if adding to cold milk it won’t really dissolve, unless you blitz together in your TMX – I don’t bother doing this as my kids like eating it off the top then drinking the milk.

Hi,

My kids can’t get enough of this. Ive substituted the coconut sugar with raw sugar when Ive run out and kids didn’t notice a change.

We only have vanilla essence at home at the moment so I have been making ‘elixir of smilo’ using a tbs of vanilla essence in lieu of the vanilla powder. The first time we made it I used ingredients I had available (generic brand cocoa powder and sugar… backed off the amount to 1 cup)… i called it ”essence of $Milo’… cooked it by melting sugar into a cup of water for a few minutes at 100c then adding cocoa/cocao letting it reduce for a few minutes. Turning off heat adding a tbs vanilla essence and musing for 5 seconds… Read more »
