Chocolate Malt Ice Cream turns your favorite milkshake into a summer dessert you can enjoy by the scoop! This no-cook, egg free, easy homemade chocolate ice cream is combined with malted milk powder for that good old-fashioned taste.
If you love a good old fashioned chocolate malt milkshake, then this homemade ice cream is for you! It’s creamy, chocolatey, malty, rich, and smooth!
It’s actually funny how much I love a chocolate malt, seeing as how I hate chocolate malted milk balls. (Say that five times fast!) They’re just too crunchy for my taste. But a homemade chocolate malt shake is my absolute favorite! I thought, why not just turn it into ice cream?!
CHOCOLATE MALT ICE CREAM
The sweet and nutty flavor of malted milk powder brings out the richness of the chocolate in this easy homemade ice cream.
Simply whisk cocoa powder, malted milk powder, and sugar together until no lumps appear. You can also sift these ingredients with a fine mesh sieve for best results.
Then gradually whisk in the heavy cream and milk, and stir until the dry ingredients dissolve. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to the directions of your machine. So easy!
At this point you will either enjoy the ice cream soft-serve style, or place it in a container to freeze completely. You could fold in malted milk balls before you freeze it, if you want an ice cream with chunks, but I love the smooth, creamy, pure chocolate malt flavor as-is.
I love homemade ice cream so much that I have two machines! If I forget to freeze the bowl for my Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, then I just use the Ice Cream Maker Attachment on my Bosch Universal Mixer with some ice and rock salt. Both are great ice cream makers!
