Flashback Friday: Ice Cream Socials

I'm joining Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet for another Flashback Friday! Check out Suzy's Flashback Fridays for more "new visits to old favorites!"

Flashing back to last summer when Suzy from Kitchen Bouquet hosted a good old fashioned ice cream social! Of course I forgot to put the freezer thing in the freezer, but I managed to join in anyway!

 and Suzy is having another one. Details will be announced soon. But I'm ready this time, the freezer thing is in the freezer already!

Malted Milk Shakes
source: Martha Stewart 
Printable Recipe

Makes 4 shakes (I got less, maybe Martha uses smaller glasses!)

1 cup milk
6 tablespoons malted-milk powder, plus more for garnish
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1 pint chocolate ice cream
Malted-milk balls, for garnish (optional)

Place 1/2 cup milk and 3 tablespoons malt powder in the jar of a blender, and process until malt is dissolved. Add half the vanilla ice cream, and blend until smooth. With the motor running, add remaining vanilla ice cream, 1 scoop at a time, until it is fully incorporated. Pour half the shake into a glass measuring cup, and place in freezer. Divide remaining half between two glasses, and place glasses in freezer. Allow to chill for 10 minutes before proceeding to step two.

Place remaining 1/2 cup milk and remaining 3 tablespoons malt powder in clean jar of blender, and process until malt is dissolved. Add half the chocolate, or strawberry, ice cream, and blend until smooth. With motor running, add remaining ice cream, one scoop at a time, until fully incorporated. Divide half the shake between two empty glasses, and top off the two partially filled glasses from freezer with the remainder. Allow the half-filled glasses to freeze for 10 minutes. Stir reserved vanilla shake before topping off remaining glasses. Garnish with malted-milk powder and malted-milk balls if desired, and serve immediately.

I garnished with Nestle's Quick!
