June 1 is being celebrated as the World Milk Day, worldwide. This year (on June 1, 2021), it's the world is celebrating the 21st anniversary of the day. This day is earmarked to celebrate the wholesome food of milk, which is an integral part of our diet. We have always been advised to drink a glass of milk every day, because milk brims with essential macronutrients that give us our daily nutrient fix. Milk is rich in calcium, which is good for teeth and bones. The high-protein content of milk helps strengthen muscles, hair, and provides bouts of energy to the body. But, that's not all; milk is also a great source of vitamins like Vitamin A, B1, B2, B12, D, and minerals like potassium and magnesium.
World Milk Day, an endeavour by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, reminds us of the prodigal milk and the bountiful supply of health benefits it offers. Since, not everyone likes the taste of plain milk or regular flavoured milk, here are some milk-based delicious drinks you can devour this summer.
