Malted Milk Ball Shake Float

What on earth is a Shake Float?

Well, you’ve heard of a root beer float right…..where you add ice cream to a glass and pour root beer over it.

A shake float is the same only you pour a shake over the ice cream that’s in the glass.

And the ice cream in the glass is a different flavor than the ice cream that the shake is made out of.

How fun is that!

This shake is made with vanilla ice cream, malted milk balls, and malted milk.

Then, the shake is poured over Expresso Chocolate Chip ice cream. 

But you can use any combination of flavors that you like.  Just think of the possibilities!

What a fun and over the top amazingly delicious treat. 

The biggest decision you’ll need to make is if you should use a straw or a spoon. 

I used both…maybe at the same time.  I don’t remember because it was so good that it was all gone before I knew it.

Let’s check out the ingredients.

Milk, vanilla ice cream, malted milk balls, malted milk, and expresso chocolate chip ice cream.

Here’s how to make it: 

First,

add a cup of malted milk balls to a blender.

You may need extra for taste testing.

Then,

add the….

….milk,

 and…

the….

malted milk,

and next, 

….add the vanilla ice cream.

Blend on the shake setting or medium speed for about a minute, or until all ingredients are combined.  Set aside for just a moment.

Add the ice cream flavor of your choice to the serving glasses….

or to pint-size mason jars if you like.

Then,

add a few malted milk balls to each glass.

Next pour the shake over the ice cream that’s in the glass.

Top with the remaining malted milk balls.

Enjoy!

Thank you a ton…

….for stopping by.

I sure appreciate it.

      Hi Kellie, I think that I used chocolate chip. But you’re right, cookies n cream or chocolate would be really good with this shake. And I have to agree that any ice cream would work! Have a great week!
