Last week I was plagued with strawberry malted milkshake fantasies and had no ice cream to make my dreams come true. With a little teamwork from my pantry and freezer I was able to quench my cravings.
By borrowing the base of my Raw Chocolate Milk and adding frozen strawberries as well as malted milk powder, I was able to come up with this deliciously smooth & creamy strawberry malted milkshake that's almost dairy free...
One sip and I'm suddenly transported back to my childhood...fighting over a strawberry milkshake with my brothers in the back seat of my mom's old green station wagon we referred to as The Pickle Mobile.
And we're off!
Soak the cashews in water for about an hour.
When you're ready, gather your ingredients.
Malted milk powder makes this a malted milkshake!
The nuts go into the blender with some filtered water. Blend! Keep blending for about 3-4 mins.
You will need ice cubes.
Put it all in the blender. BLEND.
Hello beautiful pink milkshake!
One for me...one for Cooper...and one for you...
Lemme just find you another jar...
Strawberry Malted Milkshake
Makes about 3 cups
- 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked 1 hour
- 2 cups filtered water
- 1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
- 5 tablespoons agave syrup
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons malted milk powder (optional)
- 1 cup ice
Drain the nuts. In a blender, blend the filtered water with the cashews for 3-4 minutes until milk is completely smooth. Combine the strawberries, agave, vanilla extract, malt and ice and blend until full incorporated. Serve immediately.
Adjust the agave syrup according to taste. My frozen strawberries were on the tart side, which is why I added this amount of agave syrup
