After buying malted milk powder for the first time recently and making my inaugural malted milk recipe (the Chocolate Malted Whopper Cookies – yum!), I knew without a doubt that my next stop would be a milkshake. I mean, how could it not be?! Malted milkshakes are pretty much iconic in America. They make me envision corner-shop candy and soda fountain shops in the 1950’s. Sometimes I wish I would have grown up in that era – everything about it mesmerizes me. But we’re in the here and now, and great milkshakes are still coveted today. While I admittedly don’t have them often, there is just something so satisfying about a really great, thick, creamy milkshake. And vanilla is by far my favorite. Off I went to churn up my favorite vanilla bean ice cream so I could make a perfectly authentic, homemade malted milkshake.
So, this is pretty much the best milkshake ever. Thick, creamy, ice-cold, malt-y, and with 100% homemade ice cream. I can’t imagine anything better. Also, I love that you can see the little vanilla bean flecks in the milkshake! If you like chocolate or strawberry shakes, just use your favorite flavor of ice cream and keep everything else the same.
Disclaimer: I have no idea how many calories or fat grams are in this milkshake. Ignorance is bliss and everything in moderation. Enjoy! :)
