Servings: 2 servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes (plus 1 hour to chill glasses)

3/4-1 cup cold whole milk, less for thicker milkshakes
1 teaspoon Tahitian vanilla extract
Seeds from 1 Tahitian vanilla bean*
2 cups Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, preferably homemade
2-3 tablespoons malted milk powder, to taste (found in grocery aisle near dry milk powder or near coffee, tea, and cocoa)
1/4 cup malted milk balls, crushed

Chill 2 tall glasses in the freezer for 1 hour.
Add milk, vanilla extract, and seeds from vanilla bean* to blender (reserve vanilla bean pod for another use).
Cover and blend a just few seconds to evenly distribute seeds in liquid.
Add ice cream, and malted milk powder to blender.
Cover and blend until thick and creamy, pushing ice cream into blades as needed.
Divide milk shake between chilled glasses.
Top each milk shake with crushed malted milk balls and serve with a straw and long spoon.
(Optional garnish: mint and vanilla bean pod)

There you have it! Our take on a great shake, perfect for cooling down on a hot day and enjoying the sweeter side of life.

*How to remove vanilla bean seeds: Cut the bean in half lengthwise. Lay the bean flat on a cutting board and scrape the seed out with a knife. Reserve the bean pod for another use.
