Malted Banana Ice Cream

Malted Banana Ice Cream

The star ingredient of the old-fashioned malted milk shake, malted milk powder is made from barley malt, wheat, and milk. Here it comes together with ripe bananas for a delightful treat. The riper the bananas, the deeper the banana flavor. Roasting the bananas in their own skin further intensifies their flavor.
