There are some recipes out there that are so fun, so easy, and so unique that I have to try them right away. A pineapple malted milkshake? Definitely covers all three.

I happened to have everything on hand except for the malted milk powder (which I thought was weird and freaked me out) but I went for it anyways. Thank god it’s not the same as Whoppers, because I hate whoppers with a fiery passion that consumes my soul…Ok, that might be a slight over exaggeration…

The milkshake turned out divine, and the malted taste is subtle enough for me to handle. I restrained myself from adding some ice cubes (a must for me on most homemade milkshakes) and next time I would probably add a few to make it a homerun.
