Theresa got me a Cuisinart 2-Quart Ice Cream Maker for xmax to replace the KitchenAid one I dropped a couple years ago. Most of the magic fluid leaked out and attempts to repair failed. I have used the heck out of the Cuisinart since I got it. I think I used it every day for the first week. A way too vanilla custard style ice cream, oreo chunk, orange juice concentrate sorbet, Kool-Aid and strawberry soda slushies, and I thought a tablespoon of instant coffee would not be too much ice cream. They were OK, but Ovaltine ice cream is amazing.
I was never a huge fan of Ovaltine, was more of a strawberry quick kid, but the rich malty flavor was pretty good. I am not much of a chocolate ice cream fan, but love the malt flavor. When I got the jar of Chocolate Malt Ovaltine home I smelled it and it was a bit rougher than I remembered. I cringe when i think of drinking milk, so testing it out was not going to happen. I made up a simple no egg batch of ice cream and it took 5 tablespoons of Ovaltine to get it perfect.
When scooping it out of the mixer it was soft serve just like a frosty and tasted just like a frosty. I never really noticed the malt flavor of Frosty, but from what I can tell the flavors are very similar. It was so good I had some for lunch today and will be making it again.

Whisk sugar into the milk till dissolved –> add cream –> churn in ice cream maker –> when almost done add in Ovaltine to your desired concentration. 5 TBLS worked for me
