Vanilla Bean Malted Milkshakes

Vanilla Bean Malted Milkshakes_small
Have you noticed the recurring theme with malt powder? It began as a pregnancy obsession and never went away. I dream about it. I sing about it in the shower. I need it.

Do I sound like a crack addict? (Don’t answer that.)

This is the standard malt I make for myself every single day um, occasionally. The vanilla bean makes it unbelieveable but the secret is not to skimp on the malted milk powder.

Excuse me, I need to go get my fix…

p.s. If you don’t have a vanilla bean, you can sub 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. It’s not as amazing though…just sayin’.

Vanilla Bean Malted Milkshakes


3/4 cup milk (I use 2%)

1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise

2/ 1/3 cups vanilla bean ice cream

2 tablespoons malted milk powder (I use Carnation)


Pour milk into a blender. Scrape in the seeds from the vanilla bean; discard bean. Cover and blend 15 seconds. Add ice cream and malted milk powder and blend until thick and creamy. Divide milk shake between two glasses.

Serves 2. (Or 1 pregnant woman.)
