My current staple (liquid) diet.
Original French name is ‘Ovomaltine’ and was developed in Berne, Switzerland, reaching the shores of Britain in 1909.
My father used to drink a warm mug of it in the morning before setting off for work . Now it’s become part of my daily diet, if not my only sustenance, during these days of ‘rest’.
I love the deliciously malted chocolate-y taste of it, and I do over-dose on it. I use 3 heaped tablespoons instead of the recommended 4 teaspoons. I prepare mine conscientiously by 3/4-filling the mug with just-boiled hot water and fill the rest with Kowloon Dairy’s ‘Hi-Calcium Slimilk’ (1.5% low fat milk drink). Gorgeous . It makes me glow!
Ovaltine’s delicious combination of malt, milk and cocoa carries 11 essential vitamins and 4 key minerals of calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc. Each vitamin and mineral is between 26-56% recommended daily allowance.
