Chocolate and Malt Frozen Hot Chocolate

 Caving into my hankering for sweet blended frozen beverages, I've been whipping up a super delicious concoction with cocoa and malted milk powder (Horlicks)! I've taken step by step photos, but really, it only takes a handful of steps and the results are mucho rewarding. Read on!

Start off with cocoa, sweetener and a malt beverage powder of your choice. I used Horlicks but Ovaltine would make an excellent replacement. 

Get some ice cubes or frozen coconut milk. I happened to have some coconut milk frozen, because sometimes you just don't need to use a full can. Freezing them is the perfect solution!

Start by filling your cup up with ice and/or coconut ice cubes. I'm using my Magic Bullet blender cup, as I'm making a single serving.

Add in about three tablespoons of cocoa powder (per serving). You could cheat and use chocolate syrup if that's what you've got, you'll just have to adjust the sugar later on.

Follow the cocoa with a couple heaping tablespoons of malt powder. 
Seriously guys, add as little or as much of any of the ingredients as you like! Just make sure you've got enough ice in there to make it a slush. 

Sugar for sweetness. As mentioned in my Frozen Green Tea Latt√© post, if you're using honey or any kind of syrup that thickens when cold, it's best to thin it out with a little hot water or else it'll just clump on the side of the blender instead of being blended into your drink! 

Ideally I'd make a simple syrup to use, but I haven't done that yet and who knows when that'll happen. As you see, I've decided to use plain old granulated sugar. I never said this was healthy! Just healthier..ish.

Now that all the dry ingredients are in, it's time to add the milk of your choice. Pour in a little under 2/3 of the way up the ice.

Then blend the living day lights out of it! Start by pulsing a couple times and then just let it go at full speed (stopping once or twice to give it a good shake if it's really slushy), until it's nice and smooth.

Disregard the horrendous photo quality below. It was getting horribly dark and stormy!

Voila! Now go make a batch and share!
