My Relationship With Milk

June 1 is also World Milk Day. Do a roundup of your favourite milk recipes.

My relationship with milk is very typical I guess. Growing up yes I had it a lot – as just straight up warm milk in a glass in the morning along with breakfast and sometimes in the evening too. Many a times we were given boost or Maltova or Ovaltine but it was usually just milk. At times I would ask for chocolate or strawberry flavoured milk, although the latter was more loved by my sister.

As I reached 12 I started drinking coffee and usually drank my coffee with milk – once in the morning before breakfast and once in the evening with a snack. That is the way it has been for quite a long time. By the time I was in my early 20s I started drinking more black coffee, which my mother doesn’t condone. And for a while, I spent most of my coffee drinking at home black but whenever I went to cafes ofcourse I usually had them with milk in it – except for the odd Irish Coffee.

And then in my late 30s to early 40s, I drank mostly black but now have changed it yet again to more milk based coffee at home and outside. It just tastes better and I need the calcium. The odd time I get a flavoured milk, which is what – once a year? – it is usually a chocolate milk.
