Alright, so here is an interesting smoothie I made for my Grandmother this afternoon. It’s main ingredients are APPLES, ALMOND MILK AND HORLICKS!
For those of you who don’t know what Horlicks is, I shall give you the quick rundown on it:
Horlicks is a malted milk powder.

It contained malted barely and wheat flour which is then mashed together in hot water to create sugars converted from starch. Dairy is then added. The water then evaporates in order to form a syrup.
This is dried to form a cake.
It is said to help promote sleep, however that isn’t exactly a certainty. It doesn’t always help me sleep. But it used to when I was a younger little girl.
This and Ovaltine are almost ALWAYS in a jamaican household, by the way. *bigupbigup*
ANYWAY, so thats a little bit about Horlicks. I am sure you can find it in your local grocery store.
