White Russian Malts

What's a more classic accompaniment to burgers and fries than a malt? But there are tons of malt recipes out there. I wanted to spice things up a bit--so I added alcohol! Mr. Kim Chee loves White Russians, and he also loves malts. It was an easy progression to smash the two together! And don't worry, I'll try to keep the Big Lebowski jokes in check.

Just a few simple ingredients needed. Malt powder, ice cream, Kahlua, and vodka.

I like the ice cream with the bits of vanilla bean. Two or three big scoops are perfect.

The ice cream goes into the blender, along with the Kahlua and vodka.

Malt powder is what makes this a malt. If you want a shake, just don't add the malt. Voila.

If your ice cream is really firm, you might want to add a little splash of milk--not too much, don't forget that the alcohol is a liquid, too. If your ice cream is on the softer side, an ice cube might be a better choice.

Blend until there are no bits of ice cube or lumps of ice cream. If you're really picky, you might need to scrape down the sides of your blender, since some the malt powder will likely stick.

Serve with a straw and a frilly umbrella (it really ties things together. I made it all the way to the end before saying anything...)

This is what The Dude would drink, if The Dude cared enough to take the time to blend everything together, which I doubt he would. But whether you're the Donny, Walter, Bunny, or The Dude of your group, it will take just one sip to sell you on White Russian Malts!

Recipe: White Russian Malts

3 large scoops natural vanilla ice cream
1 shot vodka
1 shot Kahlua
3 tbsp. malt powder
splash milk, or 1 ice cube (depending on the firmness of your ice cream)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until the desired consistency.


  1. I am not a White Russian person, but I would consider trying this with Baileys or something Minty!

  2. My hubby would love this--he loves white Russians. And he recently watched Big Lebowski. : )

  3. Bailey's would be great, too! I bet Godiva liquer would be awesome here. One of these days I'm going to make myself a big ol' stout float.

    Jeni, Mr. Kim Chee has to have a white Russian every time we watch that movie!
