Homemade Malted Milk Ball Ice Cream

I just love the tasted of malted milk powder! As a kid, my mom would often top plain vanilla ice cream with sprinkling of this powder, and our favorite ice cream shop in town had a popular malt with 2x the malt powder. Yum!

I wanted to introduce my kids to the same flavor, so when we came up with the idea to create our own ice cream truck, I went on the search for a good Malted Milk Ball ice cream. Unfortunately every recipe I found included eggs, which I didn’t want to mess with. So, I came up with the following recipe using our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker*.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 C. Malted Milk Powder (I used the chocolate flavor because it was all I could find at the grocery)
  • 1/2 C. Granulated Sugar
  • 1/8 C. Brown Sugar
  • 1 C. Whole Milk
  • 2 C. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 T. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Cups Malted Milk Balls, chopped + more for garnishing, if desired

What to do:

  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  2. Add the milk and use a mixer or whisk until the sugars are dissolved.
  3. Stir in the cream and vanilla.
  4. Set it in the fridge to cool at least 2 hours or overnight.
  5. Pour the chilled mixture into your ice cream mixer* for 15-20 minutes or until it’s thickened.
  6. Slowly pour the desired amount of Milk Balls into the drum while the ice cream mixes, or fold it in at the end.
  7. Freeze in an airtight container for about 2 hours. Enjoy!

The result? Amaze-milkballs.  Ahem.
