Garlic milk is one of the tastiest ways to consume garlic. Garlic milk offers many health benefits. 1. For Cold & Flu- If you are prone to getting cold and flu, consuming garlic milk will greatly reduce it. 2. For Acne- Consuming garlic milk is as effective as external application for treating acne. Regular consumption of garlic milk is an effective way to diminish further acne flares on the skin. 3. For Feeding Mothers- Garlic milk is one of the best foods that increases breast milk. Giving garlic milk to feeding mothers immediately after child birth ensures good and sufficient breast milk supply. 4. For Pneumonia- Garlic milk is one of the best home remedys for pneumonia. We can easily give it to small children without any problems, since it is very tasty. 5. For Good Digestion- Garlic milk is very good for treating digestive problems. Garlic stimulates the digestive juices and is very effective in treating all stomach ailments 6. De Worming Medicine- Garlic milk is one of the best and natural ways to remove intestinal worms. Make sure to drink it first thing in the morning. 7. For Sciatica- Because of it's painkilling properties garlic milk is recommended for people who suffer from sciatica. To make this garlic milk, boil finely pounded garlic in milk till it is cooked well. Add turmeric powder, palm candy and pepper powder to it and switch off. Cool, mash it well and your healthy garlic milk is ready!

 


 METHOD:
1. Pound the garlic well and add to milk and water mixture and boil it till the garlic is cooked well.


2. I love the taste of palm candy in this milk. This is palm candy.



3. Once the garlic is cooked, add palm candy, pepper powder and turmeric powder, boil for few minutes till raw smell goes and switch off.


4. Let it cool a bit and mash it with a masher and your healthy garlic milk is ready!


NOTES:
  • Make sure to pound the garlic pods well, for it to cook faster.
  • You can substitute palm candy for white sugar too, but palm candy is very healthy and rich in iron.
  • For young children, reduce the quantity of pepper powder.
  • This milk is tasty and very comforting to drink, if you have a cold or flu.
  • I used organic, grass fed, whole milk from the farm, you can substitute with any type of milk you prefer
  • I don't like it too sweet, but you can decrease or increase the sweetness according to your taste.

    1. Consuming garlic milk reduces acne flare ups, but the time taken for the acne to diminish varies from person to person. I would suggest weekly three to four days to see good results.

    1. If you mash the pieces well, you don't have to strain at all, I usually don't. If you pound the garlic well, it will take around 4 to 5 minutes to cook well.....

    1. Hi Pragati, I would suggest you give him krishna tulsi cough syrup or karpooravalli syrup from the blog. When my son was a child, whenever he catches a cold or cough, I sterilize a white cloth by boiling it and then make the krishna tulsi syrup and strain it in the sterilized cloth and give it to him in empty stomach for 3 days, works really well. Also please start introducing homemade ragi porridge for him and give it to him with jaggery, will greatly improve his health....

  23. Hi Ramya Venkateshwaran, I could see that this article has been published on Saturday, 14 June 2014. And thereafter 40/45 comments is appearing either in the form of seeking further advise or stating the commitment of commencing taking this ' GARLIC MILK " and their opinion or of getting well by this "UPCHAR" .

    ACCORDING TO ME, THOSE WHO HAVE ACTUALLY IMPLEMENTED THIS " UPCHAR " SHOULD COME FORWARD WITH A RESULT GAINED BY THEM. THIS WOULD BE MOST HELPFUL AND GUIDING TO OTHERS.
