Old-Fashioned Chocolate or Vanilla Malted

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

The Walgreen drugstore chain popularized this soda-fountain drink in the 1930s under the name "Horlick's Malted Milk". You can make this warm-weather favorite with either whole milk and ice cream or low-fat milk and frozen yogurt. For adults, toss a shot of Kahlua or brandy into the blender for a tasty treat.

This is really yummy! I used a combo of Ovaltine malted milk powder, vanilla ice-cream, homemade chocolate syrup(Steve G's recipe here on Recipezaar) and evaporated milk(as I ran out of fresh milk). This was really delicious, though, my only suggestion is to serve this chilled. I added 4-5 ice cubes to my glass and I was in heaven with this drink! Thanks!!!
