I love drinking milk at any time of the day. I love eating fruits too. Some say drinking milk and eating fruits at the same time is bad for the stomach. Is this true? If i ice blend fruits and milk, is it bad?

I've also heard they make a bad combination. I only use soy and nut milks which I think would be fine to mix with fruit because it's not animal product.

For us who don't know a thing about the right food combination, nothing is wrong. As long as nothing happens when we eat it, then we just go ahead and enjoy. But actually, do you notice that sometimes we eat certain combination of foods and we end up having indigestion or gas formation in the stomach? That is bad food combination. The incompatibility of food disturbs our digestive system and also confuses our cells that leads to different diseases. So next time be sure that the fruit you mix with your milk go well together.

I make my kids "milkshakes" with frozen strawberries and skim milk all the time and they've never had a problem. We add bananas sometimes too.

Well, I don't believe in that. Have you ever eaten fruit ice cream? That's milk and fruits together. And I have eaten fruits and drank mik right after it and nothing happened. =) And no, making blended fruits and milk isn't bad at all. It's healthy and yummy.. =P

Fruit is a quick and easy way of giving your body the goodness it needs to keep healthy. It's also a great thing to give your kids - it makes a great healthy snack, instead of chocolate, sweets or crisps.

milk with fruit fresh juice is great,, try banana-milk or jawava-milk juice and if you add some honey they will be even better, that's common here in Egypt!!!

i dont think it's true many people i watched drink milk with banana at the same time but it might be that some fruit are not good for health with milk so it's better not to take fruit with milk

Not all fruits goes well with milk. There are some that we don't mix milk like oranges, pineapple & lemon. Fruit shakes are so delicious if you mix milk like mango, avocado, strawberry, and banana.

I don't think so, in fact they are a very good combination. During the mango season we used to eat a lot of mangoes and that isn't very good for the body, we were advised to drink a glass of milk to combat the ill effects of mangoes. Mangoes tend to increase body heat which leads to other problems. I don't see why you can't fruits and drink milk at the same time, its as good as drinking a fruit milkshake right?
