I'm making a bowl of Milk with some Cereal inside it for a scene. It just wasn't looking right and I was wondering why.

Until I noticed that there were no shadows being casted on the Milk! Neither from the bowl nor the Cereal.

enter image description here

I've gone through every setting I could think of that could have anything to do with shadows, but I just can't find the issue. Normals are facing the correct way. I double checked.

EDIT: Included .Blend File

EDIT2: Now actually included the .Blend File.

Your milk has Subsurface Scattering, it tends to make the shadow disappear
