  • 3 scoops ice cream
  • 1/3 cup whole milk more or less
  • 2 tablespoons malted milk powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extract or syrups, to taste (see note)
  • Real whipped cream and cherries for garnish


  • Chill a large soda glass while making the shake.
  • Let ice cream soften slightly.
  • Put the ingredients into a blender. Puree until smooth. Add more milk if the mixture is too thick. If it gets too thin, add a bit more ice cream.
  • Serve in the chilled tall glass, topped with whipped cream and cherries.


Depending on what flavor ice cream you're using, add vanilla extract, cherry extract, etc. For chocolate you can just add a few squirts of chocolate syrup. If you don't have any extract or syrup on hand, don't worry. The shakes will still turn out great!
