Contains: Dairy, gluten. Is: Vegetarian, quick and easy.
If you leave out the “malt” portion of this, the treat is gluten-free.
Making a malt means that one has taken a sprouted grain that was then quickly dried. Barley is most frequently used. For malt powder, this is ground down into that powder. A malted milk powder consists of malt powder, wheat powder, and powdered milk.
I worked with these two recipes, to create the best of a mocha milkshake with the malted vanilla one.:
I used whole (dairy) milk, but you can also experiment with others. I might try oatmeal milk next time. And obviously, any flavor of ice cream that goes with mocha is good.
Prep Time: 5-10 minutes.
Cook Time: It’s RAAAWW!
Rest Time: No.
Serves: 1, possibly 2.
Leftovers?: Not amenable to that!
Malted Mocha Milkshake.
- 1 cup cold milk
- 1 cup coffee ice cream
- 3 tablespoons malted milk powder
- 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract.
Combine all ingredients in a large container. Blend with an immersion blender, or use a food processor. You can leave the ice cream a bit chunky (my preference) or blend until creamy.
Pour into a suitable tall glass. Serves one.
I really loved the malted milkshakes of my mis-spent youth. That malted flavor is something I’ve always enjoyed (maybe not so often in beer, but hey).
