Milo Rice reminds me of childhood. It was an afternoon snack (merienda) we enjoyed as kids. Sometimes we would have it for breakfast. Some of my friends find it gross but to our family, this is completely normal! In fact, it’s comfort food.
Chocolate Powder on Rice: Makes me feel like a kid!
How to Make Milo Rice
Making Milo rice is ridiculously easy! All you need is a few spoonfuls of Milo, a plate of rice, and a spoon. Yummy!
All you need. Plus a spoon.
Yep, I used up the whole sachet but used more rice than what’s pictured above. Comfort food to the max. When my friends learn about this comfort dish, they go “Yuck!” And I go, “Walang basagan ng trip!” (Loose translation: “To each his own!”)
It’s all uphill from here.
Give it your all! Sprinkle, pour, dust, speckle, throw some Milo over your rice. You can do it! Don’t be shy.
Cannot wait to dig into this.
I love it when the powder becomes soft, melts and begins blending into the rice. By this time you’ll smell the tempting signature aroma of Milo. Mmm!
Milo powder also tastes great when you use it as bread filling. Yum! I love pouring it on sliced bread or in pan de sal, especially when the bread is still warm. Nothing says merienda time better than a Milo pandesal. But wait! Back to Milo rice.
Just like that, I’m a kid again!
I’ve tried mixing other chocolate powder brands with rice, bu only Milo captures the taste I crave. For certain it’s because of how it takes me down memory lane. This dish always makes me feel like I’m 6 years old.
When I need a dose of comfort, this is one of my go-to snacks. It’s a quick dish to prepare and an even quicker dish to finish off. A second serving is always encouraged. Milo rice is comfort food at its chocolatiest.
