This ones a big ol’ thank you to Thomas Mayne who developed Milo in Sydney in 1934. Now I usually gravitate away from big brands like Nestle but its hard to make Milo without the help of, well, Milo. And this ones got some history.
Milo was designed in the depression to encourage young children to drink milk. The drink contains iron, vitamin C and B1 to supplement nutrients they weren’t getting in their daily diet.
Its an Australian gem of a drink that every Aussie knows from being an active little youngster back in their days. This slice goes out to the kids, the mums, the dads, the grandparents, and everyone in between.
This recipe is an adaptation of milo slice. It is ridiculously easy to make – just combine all the ingredients and bake in a pan!
