Oh, boy. Here it comes. The end of summer. There’s so much that’s not done yet and so much coming up. Makes me want to curl up with a good book and grab an iced latte. Which puts me in mind of cold things to drink. Like malted milk. A friend was over last week with her granddaughters and we got to talking. She told me her grown kids had no idea what a malted milk was. What??? Is this world coming to? My grandkids know what it is because their grandpa made sure of it. I made some for lunch that day and all the kids loved it. So – here’s how you make one in case you didn’t know.
Chocolate Malted Milk (Shake)
Milk – put some in a blender
Chocolate Ice cream – plop it in with the milk
Malt powder – a couple of tablespoons to start (find it in the coffee aisle with other powdered drink stuff)
Chocolate syrup – squirt a goodly amount on top of the whole mess
Whirl in the blender then open the top and taste. If it’s too thin add more ice cream. Too thick add more milk. Or chocolate syrup or malt powder.
Pour into tall glasses and use a straw for Heaven’s sake. Tastes much better that way. And if you’re feeling decadent top with whipped cream and a dash of cocoa.
So there ya go. An August treat and Grandpa would approve.
