Strawberry Malted Milkshake

strawberry malted milkshake

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.

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.

Notes:

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

    I adore anything with malt!

  • I’ve never even had malt!! Makes me wonder what cave I’ve been living in. I HAVE been going gaga for homemade cashew milk, so this milkshake will be appearing in my kitchen this week.

    This is awesome, Tracy! I heard you mention this in your most recent podcast and I’m so excited to see the recipe. Ps- just got myself a Clarisonic! I was thinking and thinking about getting one and your feedback was the final boost I needed. Can’t wait to start scrubbing… haha.

    I have to admit that I used to dislike Nesquik strawberry milkshakes (my brother loved them!) but I most definitely want one of these!

  • March 19, 2012

    Oh, I’m longing for fresh strawberries in this fresh milkshake… It’s almost the season!

  • March 19, 2012

    Looks so yummy!

    I’ve never used malt before, I should try it!

  • March 19, 2012

    I can’t believe you can do this with cashews! I need to try it. This milkshake sounds wonderful!

  • March 19, 2012

    Cashews and malted milk! I love your range of cooking, Tracy! Seriously impressive. Strawberry milkshakes totally take me back to my childhood…ahh nostalgia.

    This looks delicious! It so happens I’m on the market for a new blender-a tough and sturdy beast that handle ice cubes. May I ask, what kind of blender you have?

    Thanks!

    Such a pretty pink! I have yet to delve into the world of cashew milk, but it sure sounds easy enough. And one of the best ice creams I’ve ever made used malt powder. What is it about that stuff?!

  • weird, today i was thinking of making cashew milk, found a recipe on Joy’s website, couldn’t use it cause it called for 8-12 hrs soaking (but totally will another time) and here you go posting this quick fix 1 hr soak. you are my new best friend. Thanks a billion.

    Great idea, making a milkshake with raw cashews! Thanks for reminding me to add cashews to my grocery list.

  • March 22, 2012

    Yummy! This milkshake looks great! Love that the milk powder is optional.
