Milk Won’t go Well with Fruits
“Fruits rich in vitamin C should never be teamed with milk”.
Some of you might already know this piece of Food knowledge. This is because Milk takes longer to digest and when you have milk and lemon or any citrusy fruit together, then milk is supposed to get coagulated. This in turn can lead to gas and heat burn. As per Ayurveda, Milk and fruits should be consumed separately and the only exception in this case could be sweet tasting fruits like Mangoes, Avocados, Figs, Dates etc., that have some buttery properties.
Milk in itself is a complete meal but it takes more time to get completely digested and to release its nutrient qualities as well. By nature, the qualities of milk are heavy, dense, cold and sweet. So when combined with fruits, it puts of the digestive fire, makes digestion tougher and leads to the accumulation of toxins in the body. So you just always be extra careful about what fruits you mix with Milk.
