Its evening and i need to get a dose of my energy, which is coffee.
Now generally i prefer my coffee with less sugar and milk which is a bit on the higher end. To sum it up, my coffee is neither too strong nor mild.
I prefer making it with cow milk. Now here we do get camel milk but i just can’t prepare myself mentally into buying it, leave alone preparing my ‘energy boosters ‘with it.
I really wonder why can’t i imagine myself buying it. We are so conditioned right from a young age to have cow milk or Buffalo milk which is more rich in fat and is good for bones during our growing up years. And all the by products that we use are from cow milk.
After coming here i got to see camel milk in all the supermarkets but i just can’t make myself to purchase it while almost everytime it ends up in my shopping basket when i reach the milk aisle and that’s when my kids would gaze at me with that treacherous look and tell me, ‘are you really going to make tea/coffee with that milk, if yes, then you alone have it and don’t make us drink it (especially the elder one says this and the mister too joins in with the warning). And…. like everytime the bottle of milk makes its way back to its section and i make a promise to it to buy it next time. Oh damn, i get no motivation to buy camel milk in my own home inspite of being in a desert country and camel being the national animal out here!
They say camel milk is more nutritious than cow milk in terms of fat and health matters.
And because i am not used to ever having had it anytime before i feel hesistant to make a cup of tea /coffee out of its milk because the image of a camel comes to my mind first and frankly this animal isn’t cute or good looking from any angle. No logic i know but just my two cents.
The same way when we had visited Bali we couldn’t prepare our minds to buy one of the most expensive coffee powder just because it was made out of a specific animal’s poop. And i saw the animal and its poop! So.. I don’t want the poop image coming to my mind while drinking my coffee.
But camel milk.. Well, i’ll just go for it one day and make a cup of tea/coffee for myself and by the way it’s just milk, it has to be healthy else why do they be selling it in the first place and its a favorite animal of the arabs, so I’ll embrace it too, hopefully.
And the bottle looks quite sexy too. I love the color combination and the design. Take a look 👇
One day.. you will be mine.😀
