During the summer, I like to keep things super easy. I want meals to be quick, so I have more time to spend playing and having fun with family and friends. I also don’t want to be hot.

Luckily, the recent rains have helped keep the heat lower than usual for this time of year, but I know the hot days are coming. I can feel it getting closer every day. So, I thought we’d make something quick and easy to keep cool once the heat gets here. As a bonus, it is National Dairy month so this week’s recipe is a perfect fit.

For a Cookies ‘n’ Cream Malted Milkshake, you will need… Cookies N' Cream Malted Milkshake
5 chocolate sandwich cookies
3 scoops homemade vanilla ice cream (I like Blue Bell the best)
2 tbsp. malted milk powder
1/3 cup whole milk

Now this is not your average, thin milkshake. This is a thick and creamy milkshake with pizzazz. It’s hard to describe malt. My best attempt would be that it makes things fluffy by adding tiny air bubbles.

First things, first. Place the cookies in a small resealable bag and crush them with a mallet. You can also put them in the bottom of a large bowl, but the bag is usually not as messy. You want to break them down pretty good, so take your time.

Next, place the ice cream scoops in the bottom of a blender. Just remember: The bigger the ice cream scoops, the bigger the shake.

Sprinkle in the malted milk powder and top with the milk. I used chocolate malt but you can get it in vanilla, too.

Finally, add the cookie crumbs and blend until smooth.

See, that wasn’t hard at all and you didn’t even break a sweat. That makes this a perfect treat for the Texas heat. Let me know what some of your favorite summer foods are. I just love trying new things. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
