    I bought one of those retro milkshake blenders last year for Christmas and in the book of recipes that came along with it, they often call for malt to make assorted drinks.

    Does anyone know what malt is and where you could purchase it?

    Carnation makes one. I buy it just at my regular grocery store. It's just a powdered flavoring to add that changes it from a shake to a malt.

    Charlene - there are two British brands of powdered malt drink: Horlicks and Ovaltine. Horlicks has a slightly maltier taste. If you can't find either one, let me know and I'll mail you a jar of Horlicks. You can also buy malt extract at any store that sells brewing supplies.

    Then you'll need to try my Horlicks Banana Smoothie!

    Let me know how you make out,

    Charlene, I notice you're in Canada.
    So am I (Toronto) ...... and I cannot find malt anywhere. Horlicks doesn't appear to be sold here in Canada, and Ovaltine is, well, a chocolate drink. I think. But at least I can buy Ovaltine ... hey all you malt experts, can I use that?

    I would not use Ovaltine in place of malt they don't taste anything alike at all. As you said Lennie ovaltine is a chocolate drink and malt is well, just malt. I'm not to familliar with what you have in Canada. Do you have malted milk ball candies? If so the Carnation stuff that was mentioned tastes like the inside of one of those chocolated covered candies. I'm not sure what Holricks is, but if it's a drink mixtue it won't taste like the carnation stuff either. Carnation is basicly just malt and meant more as an aditive not a stand alone drink like Ovaltine.
    Here is one site I found that will mail a 2 pound can outside of the US.

    Thanks Steve; yes, we do have malted milk balls. It's the "malt" to use in recipes I can't find anywhere. Thanks for the Web site lead; I'll check it out icon_smile.gif

    In many parts of America i was able to find malt powder in the grocery. I was also also to find several different varieties of Ovaltine, to include a regular malt flavor as well as a chocolate malt.

    I found a cool looking site for ordering British, Scottish, and American foods online called expatshopping.com and they sell regular Ovaltine malt. I have never ordered from them, but can you believe it - you can even buy Haggis!

    Well all of you have been very very helpful... and I'm proud to announce that the "Find Of The Day" is none other than Horlicks!

    Can you believe it Lennie? Finally a malt find in Canada. I found it in Safeway stocked with the ovaltine and other hot chocolate drink mixes, but this is pure malt. It's deceiving though, on the front of the 400g jar it says Nourishing Food Drink Mix, it's on the back that it says "malted". If it hadn't been for you Miller I doubt very much that I would have ever found it. So a great big thank you to you and also thanks for the offer to send me some! That's my buddy Miller!

    While I was there just for the heck of it I checked out Mysterygirl's suggestion of Carnation, but we don't have it and yes Lennie, you're right about the Ovaltine it is a chocolate drink.

    So while I'm on my malt high I'm going to mix up that smoothie Miller and let you know how it goes! Thanks again everybody, is there any place quite like this place? I don't think so!

    Lennie the carnation stuff I gave you the link to is the stuff you would use in any malted milk drink recipes calling for malt. Now if you you are talking bread, that type of malt you can get from king arthurs site:

    the king arthur website does sell a malted milk powder for milkshakes. i have purchased it as my family is very big into malts. it's also great added to vanilla ice cream (or chocolate) if you are making your own ice cream.
