We spent the weekend in beautiful San Diego last weekend visiting our son Logan. He is so lucky to live in such a beautiful place. I could totally move there! We had a great time and ate our share of amazing fish tacos. We spent one morning riding beach cruisers around Coronado Island. Of course we had to stop at the Del Coronado hotel and take a look around. So beautiful. Since we had burned so many calories biking around we decided to fuel up on some ice cream at a cute little ice cream shop at the hotel. I am a big malt fan (you may have noticed that from yesterday’s post) so when I saw they had Vanilla Malt Ice Cream I had to try it. It was delicious. So of course I had to come home and make my own.
I also returned from my trip to find this beauty waiting for me to try out. A Ninja Ultima™ Blender.
What a better way to break her in than with a Vanilla Malt! All you need for a vanilla malt is some vanilla ice cream, malt powder (near the hot chocolate mixes in the grocery store), and vanilla extract. The malt powder is the secret ingredient.
I decided to throw in some of those yummy malted milk ball eggs I had leftover from yesterday’s Bunny Brittle for some extra malt goodness. I loved the texture and crunch it gave the malt! The malt powder gives it plenty of malt flavor though so if you don’t have any malted milk ball eggs you’ll be fine! I promise.
Then with just the push of a button I had a yummy vanilla malt in seconds! This baby is powerful. It has a PRO Variable Speed with a range of speeds from 3,700 to 24,000 RPM.
The only thing left to do was grab a spoon and dig in! Which I did!!!
Now because I know you all want to make your own Vanilla Malts at home I’m going to give you the chance to win your own Ninja!! Sound good? The other thing I love about this machine is that it comes with three of these personal size jars. Perfect for your morning smoothie or your own individual Vanilla Malt.
The Ninja has a great prize point at only $199.99. The Ninja’s signature Total Crushing™ blades work in unison with a newly developed High Speed Cyclonic blades to give silky smooth and grit free consistency.
