  1. should it be boiled in milk or can v just mix it with hot milk?

  2. Hi Abaya, Thanks for visiting. I will make a new post on how to make health mix with step by step instructions and pictures soon.

    Now, I will give you a heads up. Take already boiled milk and mix the hralth mix powder with it. Mix well till there are no lumps. Add sugar or any natural sweetner. Heat it till the powder is cooked well. Bubbles will start coming. Stir continuously to avoid lumps. Add water or milk if required. Donot add too much of water. It will not be tasty if we add more water.
