Malted Milkshakes

Most of us remember special childhood treats we enjoyed. They may have been snow cones, or Dairy Queen flurries or even homemade ice cream. But one treat I think many of us remember is the malted milkshake. The frothy milk combined with the creaminess of ice cream made for a drink that could cure the heat of an oppressive summer day. One of the good things about milkshakes is that you can make them year round, and you don't even have to wait for summertime. Here's a recipe for malted milkshakes that I think you'll enjoy and your children will enjoy.

Malted Milkshakes
Serves 4
  1. Coarsely chop 1/4 cup chocolated-covered malted milk balls (you'll find these candies in the candy aisle of your local grocery store). Set aside.
  2. In a blender, combine 1 cup milk (use whole milk, but if you're on a diet, you can use low-fat or skim milk), 1/4 cup malted-milk powder, and 1 1/2 pints of the best vanilla ice cream (you could use low-fat frozen yogurt if you're on a diet). Blend the ingredients until they are smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into four glasses; garnish each drink with a sprinkling of the reserved chopped malted milk balls. Serve immediately.
