Double-Chocolate Malted Milk Shake

Scott Phillips

Servings: 1 or 2

For the thickest shakes, use a dense, premium brand of ice cream, like Ben & Jerry’s. And if you’d rather have just a chocolate milk shake, skip the malt powder at the end.

  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup very cold whole milk; more as needed
  • 3 scoops chocolate ice cream (about 2 oz. each), slightly softened; more as needed
  • 1 Tbs. chocolate syrup, such as Hershey’s Special Dark
  • 1 Tbs. plain malted milk powder; more to taste

  • Pour the milk into the mixing cup of a milk shake mixer or hand blender or into the jar of a regular blender. Add the ice cream and chocolate syrup. Blend on high speed until smooth. The blending time depends on the machine and the temperature of the ingredients. If necessary, add more milk or ice cream to adjust to your preferred consistency. When the shake is just about smooth, briefly blend in the malted milk powder. Serve immediately in a chilled glass.
