Nutrition Info: Calories in Horlicks Malted Milk

Posted on | August 3, 2012 | No Comments

Horlicks Malted Milk Drink

Horlicks is the branded name of a malted milk drink that is marketed to promote sleep (although how it does this is not truly known!).  There are 3 versions of Horlicks:  Original (that is mixed with milk) and Horlicks Light and Horlicks Light Malt Chocolate which are both made by mixing with hot water.

Nutrition info for Horlicks malt powder:  2 tablespoons

  • Energy: 90 calories
  • Protein: 3 g
  • Carbs:  18 g
  • Fat: 1 g

Nutrition info for Horlicks with milk:  2 tablespoon horlicks + 200ml skim milk

  • Energy: 189 calories
  • Protein: 9.6 g
  • Carbs:  27 g
  • Fat: 4.3 g

(Note:  The Horlicks light versions have 114 and 120 calories per serve when mixed with hot water – so if you can it makes more sense to choose this option)

My recommendations to make this drink slightly healthier are:

  • Choose the light versions and mix with hot water
  • Use low fat milk if needed
  • If you use powder at home – cut your portion in half
  • Don’t add any sugar

Other than that, you should try not to drink such drinks every day – trying flavoured black tea or coffee to cut to cut down the calories you consume.
