Chocolate-Malt Milkshake

Serves 4
Chocolate and malt are an old-fashioned match made in heaven! This is the milk shake rendition of malted milk balls, my favorite candy. Serve with the Classic French Dip for a full-on, full-calorie festival of flavor.


  • 3-4 cups chocolate ice cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6-8 tablespoons malt powder (or to taste)


  1. In a blender, puree ice cream, milk, and malt powder until smooth. Pour into serving glasses and serve immediately.
cook's note
Made out of barley malt, wheat, and milk, malted milk powder was originally created as a nourishing protein source for infants and invalids. Lightweight and long-keeping, this perfect packable also became popular for late-nineteenth-century explorers to take in their portable larders.
