If you leave out the "malt" portion of this, the treat is gluten-free.


Making a malt means that one has taken a sprouted grain that was then quickly dried. Barley is most frequently used. For malt powder, this is ground down into that powder. A malted milk powder consists of malt powder, wheat powder, and powdered milk.

I worked with these two recipes, to create the best of a mocha milkshake with the malted vanilla one.:
I used whole (dairy) milk, but you can also experiment with others. I might try oatmeal milk next time. And obviously, any flavor of ice cream that goes with mocha is good.


Malted Mocha Milkshake.​

  • 1 cup cold milk
  • 1 cup coffee ice cream
  • 3 tablespoons malted milk powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract.

Combine all ingredients in a large container. Blend with an immersion blender, or use a food processor. You can leave the ice cream a bit chunky (my preference) or blend until creamy.

Pour into a suitable tall glass. Serves one.
