Bing Cherry Malts

Hi! I'm just popping in for a minute with dessert. I’m taking a two plus week hiatus from technology to ride bikes, swim and picnic with my kiddo. I also plan on spending time with favorite foodie friends doing some carefree summer cooking. It will be strange to cook and taste without writing a single ingredient down for a while.

My Mactop will be locked away during this time but I should be back to posting recipes the week of July 12th.

Unfortunately, spammers worship me so I’ve turned on my comment moderation for this break. You probably don’t want to read all the crooked and terribly perverted things they try to sell me. If you leave comments I’ll post them as I can from my phone and try to answer any questions. Just try to be patient with me please.

Hope you’re having a fun and exciting summer!

Bing Cherry Malts Printer Version
I adore my Ninja Blender. If you need a new blender these are worth checking out. They’re not too expensive and work better than anything I’ve used before.

2 cups Bing cherries, pitted
2 to 3 tablespoons malted milk powder (usually found by the hot cocoa in stores)
1/4 to 1/3 cup milk
4 cups vanilla ice cream, softened slightly
Whipped cream for garnish, optional

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender. Garnish with whipped cream for extra decadence.

What a wonderful summer treat. We are in desperate need of a new blender, so I will have to try the Ninja out!

Joy said...

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM it is perfect for a summer day. Especially this weekend! In my area it is suppose to be in the 90s. It may be time to find the blender to to this.

ButterYum said...

Yum - I love malts, and a cherry one is extremely tempting! I'm jealous you have a Ninja - I ordered one from tv not long ago but the thing is on back order. I look forward to the day when it arrives. In the meantime, my trusty blender will have to do.

Have a great vacation!

These are gorgeous - perfect for a summer break. Enjoy your time off!

Jacqueline said...

Hi Laura, nice to meet you. I followed you over from Butter Yum. Can't wait to try these shakes. I have a Bing cherry tree that will be coming on soon. It wasn't supposed to be a full sized tree, but it is and we have such huge volumes of cherries we are always looking for something to do with them. I have to go now and peruse more of your blog. Yum, I'm getting hungry.

Jacqueline said...

Had a lot of fun looking at your blog. Now I am even more hungry. I am your latest follower.

Cherry was always my favorite flavor for a shake growing up. I can't do ice cream anymore(very sad!). This looks awesome and the photo is just as awesome!

Jannett said...

Mmm my bf loves milkshakes and I am obsessed with fresh cherries. I think this is something we could both get excited about :).

This looks lovely (and the photo is stunning, as always)... I'm really craving a milkshake now. :)

Gabriela said...

I love the retro element to this dessert, it must be the malt! Sounds like a great thing to pair with burgers and fries.

Bobbie said...
