Milkshakes! Posting date is July 7.
Malted Vanilla Milk Shakes
Yield: 2 large milk shakes or 6 mini milk shakes
1⁄4 cup malted milk balls (such as Whoppers or Maltesers)
3⁄4 cup very cold whole milk
1 vanilla bean
2 1⁄4 to 2 3⁄4 cups premium vanilla ice cream, to taste
2 tablespoons malted milk powder
Freeze 2 large (12-ounce or larger) or 6 small (4-ounce) glasses for at least 30 minutes. Crush the malted milk balls with a mortar and pestle until they are a chunky powder.
Pour the milk into a blender. Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and, using the tip of a knife or a small spoon, scrape the seeds into the milk. Discard the vanilla bean pod or reserve it for another use. Cover and blend for about 15 seconds. Add 2 1⁄4 cups of the ice cream and the malted milk powder and blend until thick and creamy. A good milk shake should be eaten with a spoon—so if the milk shake seems too thin, add another 1⁄4 cup to 1⁄2 cup ice cream and blend again. Divide the shake between the chilled glasses, garnish with the crushed malted milk balls, and serve immediately.

Gives me an excuse to make vanilla ice cream.
Oh, like I need an excuse. :)
What kind of ice cream maker do you have? I’m thinking of getting the one that attaches to my KA. I am dying to try to make my own ice cream!!
I have the KA ice cream bowl and love it! Ice cream is one of my favorite things to make (and eat)!
I bought the one for the KA. Thought I’d get to try it on the weekend, but wasn’t able to. Will attempt again this weekend! I’m excited. Even bought David Lebovitz’s Perfect Scoop book. :)
I have an older model of this bad boy and I love it!
