Water must be iced. Chilled cubes of fruits are the best snacks. Hot tea and coffee are replaced by tall glasses of cool milkshakes. You know summers have arrived when the beverages need switching.
Speaking of milkshakes, they are equally as easy to prepare as they are to mess up. Certain times, even packaged milkshakes by reputed brands taste undesirable. Fortunately for us, during our Amul Kool Milk review, we had no such experience.
Badam, Kesar, Elaichi – can you guess our favourite?

Our Review Factors
What were the factors we looked for when reviewing Amul Kool Milk?
Flavor and consistency were factors that led this review. In addition to these, we also considered the price, packaging, appearance, etc.
Under this parameter, we did not just gauge how prominent the flavor of the star ingredient was (kesar, elaichi, badam). Did it taste natural or industrial, like synthetic flavors were added?
We looked at how balanced the sweetness was, the freshness, other ingredients in the background, or something lending an aftertaste.
Were these milkshakes creamy and milky? Or did they have a thinner, watered-down consistency?
Was the consistency even throughout? Did it have bits of nuts or dry fruits? Any residue settling at the bottom?

The price, packaging, shelf life were noted too.
Amul Kool Milk Flavours – Detailed Review
The following section holds our experience with the three Amul Kool Milk variants.
When saffron strands are mixed in milk, it yields a pleasing yellow hue. This milk beverage had a similar appearance. With a fresh, milky aroma, the consistency here matched that of toned milk. It was neither too creamy nor too watery.
In terms of taste, the complex sweet and floral flavors of saffron were present, but were delicate. If poor-quality saffron is added, it develops a metallic-tasting dish/beverage. That was not the case here as added flavor has been used. The sweetness was slightly higher but not overwhelming to the point that it takes over other flavors. Best of all, there was no synthetic aftertaste.
This beverage is offered in a PET bottle with a reclosable lid. It holds 180 ml of content and is priced at Rs 22/-. This milk beverage has a six-month shelf life. The main ingredients are toned milk, sugar, milk solids, synthetic food colors (102, 110), and artificial flavoring substances.
- Refreshing taste
- Balanced flavors
- Even consistency
- Decent calories for a serve (163 Kcal/180 ml)
- Contains artificial colors and flavors
- Sugar content is high
Craving something chilled? Need a more filling alternative to soda? Try this Amul Kool Milk.
The natural sweet flavors of cardamom were captured really well in this milk. It was not overpowering but was refreshing. Just like the above variant, the sweetness was a bit on the higher side, but we are not complaining. The consistency was even throughout and it didn’t feel heavy or too watery. As for appearance, it had a pista green or pastel green shade. The camphoraceous aroma of cardamom was inviting.
The packaging is similar to the above variant. This is also priced at Rs 22/- for a 180-ml bottle with a six-month shelf life. The ingredients are toned milk, milk solids, synthetic food colors (102, 133), and artificial flavoring substances (elaichi). The caloric values are the same for all three variants. A 180-ml serve offers 163 Kcal divided as 5.6 grams of fat, 22.5 grams of carbohydrates (14 grams of which is sugar), and 5.6 grams of protein.
- Quite tasty
- Not too heavy on the stomach
- Fresh and non-industrial tasting
- No real cardamom used
- The color looks very artificial
Love cardamom? Here’s a cardamom-flavored milk beverage you ought to try.
With a milky aroma and beige appearance, this was one variant liked by all on the review panel. The consistency was similar to the above two variants, light and like that of toned milk. This had a subtle nuttiness like almonds do with a noticeably higher sugar content. But the overall taste was refreshing.
A 180-ml bottle is priced at Rs 22/- and has a six months shelf life. The main ingredients are toned milk, sugar, milk solids, synthetic food colors (110, 122, 150 D, 102), and it contains artificial flavors of badam and caramel. The caloric values are the same as above.
