Miller, you have yourself a very fine drink here! Super easy to prepare and for my first time experience using malt (Horlicks) I was pleased with the outcome. The only thing I would emphasize as you did was that the milk be ICE COLD! I think that this is very important to the success of the recipe. I would almost go as far as to suggest semi-freezing the milk to a "slush" state to insure that cold frothy refreshing quench of thirst. Once again Miller, a very tasty drink, I'm submitting a photo in gratitude.

OMG Miller, this is DYNAMITE!! I had all the ingredients on hand and just made me a batch of this. I already drank one glass and right now I am on the second glass. This has me licking my lips for more. Great taste and very flavorful too.

After childhood, only today I've had 'Ovaltine' and slipped back into those wonderful days I enjoyed as a kid. Thank You to U for this recipe. It was really nice, and like has been said, the milk really got to be 'ice cold' for this smoothie. I could have just 1 glass of this as it was really filling but really yummy all the same. I think its good for a quick lunch on its own for college students or those who can't spend hours in front of the gas stove. This was great! Thank U!
