Copycat Ovaltine Mix
Love the rich taste of Chocolate Malted Milk but hate the price? Here's an easy, do it yourself, make ahead mix recipe for homemade Ovaltine!
Malted mix blends in the stores simply combine barley malt, milk and various flavorings to attain a much sweeter, more nutritious milk blend. Malt powder is made from sprouting barley, drying it and then grinding it into a fine powder. There are two types available, diastatic and non-diastatic. Non-Diastatic is slightly sweeter as it contains added enzymes which help convert the starches into sugars. You can use either form in your homemade malted milk recipe.
2 c. Instant Dry Milk/Powdered Milk
6 Tablespoons of Malt Powder
6 Tablespoons Baking Cocoa Powder
Combine all of the ingredients in a large Mason jar, mixing very well to insure they are fully incorporated. This stores well for about 60 days in very cool pantry or fridge.
To make a Glass of Chocolate Malted Milk:
Combine 1/3 cup of Mix per cup of water (or more mix to your taste preferences).
For Sweeter Milk:
Add up to 1/3 c. Powdered Confectioners Sugar to the entire recipe for a sweeter milk. This of course depends on whether you use Diastatic or Non-Diastatic malt in your recipe.
