Malted Condensed Milk Ice Cream ~ Savory Simple

You guys, I’ve been having some issues with rage. Not road rage or anything quite so dangerous. No, I’m talking about a different form of rage.

One that I believe is common among many in our society but hasn’t been addressed by the media. I think people are too ashamed to speak up about it right now and if we can raise public awareness, perhaps more citizens will be able to come forward.

That’s why I’m willing to talk about my problem right here and now. I’m speaking of grocery store rage.

I definitely spend more time in grocery stores than the average person. I’m lucky enough to live in a neighborhood where I can walk to most places.

I don’t spend a lot of time in the car and that’s a good thing because gas prices are really high and I’d rather spend that money on ingredients. But I’ve noticed that many of the issues I used to deal with as a commuter can also be found at the grocery store.

Malted Condensed Milk Ice Cream ~ Savory Simple

You’ve got the slow cart drivers, lazily weaving between the right side of the aisle and the left side, making it very difficult to pass. You’ve got the people who have Very Important Places To Be, and won’t hesitate to cut you off at the deli counter.

You’ve got indecisive folk who hover at the egg section trying to decide what to buy while the rest of us who KNOW WHICH STUPID EGGS WE WANT have to wait patiently behind them. They don’t seem to understand that you can’t just stop in the middle of the road!

It creates GRID LOCK. HONK.

I hope that by speaking up today I have opened up the possibility for dialogue about this important problem that is plaguing our society. Thank you.

Servings 8 1/2 cup servings
Calories 138


  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 2 cups half-and-half (or 1 cup whole milk + 1 cup heavy cream)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup malted milk powder
  • 1 (14-ounce can) sweetened condensed milk


  • In a small bowl, vigorously whisk the egg yolks together for several seconds until smooth.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat up the half and half and vanilla extract until it just begins to simmer. Pour some of the hot liquid into the egg yolks while whisking to temper them. Then add the contents of the bowl back into the saucepan and turn the heat to low.
  • Add the malted milk powder and sweetened condensed milk and whisk to combine the ingredients in the saucepan. Continue stirring over low heat for several minutes until the mixture begins to thicken slightly.
  • Remove the heat, pour the liquid into a bowl and allow it to cool for several minutes. Then place plastic wrap directly against the top of the liquid and refrigerate until cold. The plastic wrap will prevent a skin from forming.
  • Using an ice cream maker, prepare ice cream according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • I happen to love sweetened cond milk. I mean, it’s just the best. This looks wonderful & great job on the photos. Whenever I shoot ice cream, it’s always dicey if I’m going to get the shots before it all melts (has happened many times…whoops). Your images are gorgeous!

    • I could eat sweetened condensed milk with a spoon, it’s that good. Oddly enough, ice cream is one of my favorite things to shoot because it gets so messy. I just plan everything out first and set up the camera/props. Then the longer I shoot, the more drips I get and the prettier it looks!

  • You crack me up!! I’ve been known to show a little rage at the grocery store… maybe once or twice ;)
    Love this ice cream recipe!

  • I wrote a post on that awhile back… I’m so glad I’m not the only one that thinks grocery store traffic is THE WORST! And no one ever wants to drive on the right side of the “road”!! We are making ice cream this week for grandpa’s birthday. This looks great! Maybe I’ll try it out!

  • This. Looks. Amazing.
    I am a total sucker for sweetened condensed milk… add malted milk and turn it into an ice cream? I’m dead. I died just then.

  • Jenny, you need to move out of the city, just like road rage, we left it behind when we moved to a small town 15 years ago. Now we stroll through the grocery store and chat with neighbors! Your Ice Cream sounds fabulous and looks so creamy good. Can’t wait to make up a batch!

    • I grew up in a small town and so did my husband. I don’t think we could ever go back. City living isn’t perfect but small towns have their own issues! We love being right near the action with lots to do in walking distance.

  • You got me with the name of this very ice-cream! I love malt and condensed milk, so this combination is heavenly for me!

  • Hilarious! I ran a lady over with my shopping cart. I think it was an accident but honestly, she just stopped walking in the middle of the walkway and I was in a hurry to get the hell out of there!

    Anyway, love this ice cream. I actually need this ice cream. It’s hot here in LA!

  • You know what bugs me? Two women totally blocking the aisle having a conversation. If I had a knife I’d stick ’em. (metaphorically speaking) It drives me up the wall. You have to say “excuse me” to get around and they look at you like they’re in the freakin park.

    I really like this ice cream!

    • Ha, I almost mentioned that one as well but I couldn’t figure out how to fit it into my driving theme. It happens all the time here and I often get the death stare when I say “excuse me.”

  • lol, I know what you mean about the grocery store. I just feel like punting people like a football. Ohhh, what’s worse then grocery store people, Target people! I get so angry in there, just move, don’t stand in the middle of the isle and talk on your cell phone. MOVE! Makes me crazy!!

    Your ice cream sounds incredible!! I have an ice cream maker and you inspired me to pull it out, it’s suppose to be 90’s all week here and ice cream would hit the spot!

  • LOL, I have learned to contain my rage at the grocery store, though I agree, it can be *very* frustrating sometimes. I’m a lot worse on the road… Coming home to a bowl of this ice cream would make it all better I suspect!

  • Oh man! Yes, to standing behind undecided folks at the egg section! Add a toddler in my cart who wants to grab everything and boy, I can show some rage!!! lol Love love love this ice cream, Jen! And the shots – stunning!!! Thanks for linking up to my ice cream! xo

  • Such gorgeous photography of ice cream, Jen. I never have luck with it!! I go to the grocery store… what feels like everyday… and I have the rage. Every.time.

  • I can relate to this kind of rage. Where I live the people are slower than the normal person… Standing in the middle of lane… RAGE! I love this ice cream, too bad I need to invest in ice cream marker!

  • Hahaha! OMG. I swear you are reading my mind. I had major g-store rage yesterday!! I swear people are clueless. Get in and get out. Why do you want to marinate there? Jeez. Phew. Can I have some ice cream now?

  • Jen, you cracked me up with this post. I know this rage well, and it is a constant lesson to me to allow more time for my (frequent) trips to the grocery store. You just need it if you are going to deal with the rage issue! That said, I think a trip to the store is in order if I am going to make this. Sounds amazing!

  • I’m the same way!! I hate HATE when people park their cart right in the middle of the aisle, next to some stupid Ritz Crackers cardboard display or another stupid grocery store shoppers cart, blocking passage for the rest of us. I just push their carts out of the way, and when they look up I’m mildly rude to them and say something like, “That’s not the best place to leave your cart, you’re blocking the aisle.” or “It’s best to park the cart to the side so that others can pass.” I’m sort of rude to oblivious strangers. I need some of this ice cream to calm me down!

  • I got to the grocery store first thing in the morning just so I miss as many of the crazy, lazy, or oblivious people I possibly can. I swear some people turn off their brain function when they enter those doors. Can I have a spoon and a big tin of this ice cream. Whew, I need a break.

  • We walk to the store, too. Consequently, we go there daily. Or sometimes more than once a day. I hate the people who can’t seem to properly form a line at the self check-out. It’s one line, people. You can’t just wander up and cut to the front of the line. Sheesh! Some ice cream would probably make me feel better.

  • Love condensed milk. I used to get in trouble as a kid for eating it straight out of the can. I can’t believe I haven’t made ice cream with it, but thanks to you, it’ll be on the list. I love the addition of malted milk powder. Genuis, Jen!


  • I thought I was all alone when it came to this form of rage. Thank you…thank you. :D
    Just thinking about slooow grocery carts is making me hot and bothered, I need some of this luxurious ice cream, STAT!

  • Ewwww I HAAAAAAAAAATE slow grocery shoppers! That is exactly why I choose to wake my ass up early at 6am every Friday and go when no one’s up. That way, I can shop in peace without screaming kids, annoying shoppers, slow-pokes, and the like. UGH!

    I need some ice cream now.

  • “You’ve got indecisive folk who hover at the egg section trying to decide what to buy” Uh…I think that’s me you’re talking about! I may be guilty of hovering.

  • Ha, I get exactly the same rage too! Our nearest store is so small that all it takes is one person to stand still for too long and complete chaos ensues. Love condensed milk ice cream – this is a stunner!

  • been looking for a good malted milk icecream recipe everywhere, never thought about adding condensed milk, pure genius. about to whip up a batch with a swirl of dulce de leche… YUM

  • LOLLOL…the best way to handle your issue is to find a day and time where the store doesn’t have a lot of the people shopping that you have issues with. For me it is early in the weekday mornings! I am a senior[probably one of the people who grate on you by taking my time shopping] I assure you IF my knees were younger, I would be faster! So, I try to shop the days and times I know the stores are not filled with the younger, family crowds…Maybe MIDNIGHT would work for you! Course you will probably have to deal with the WEIRD WalMart people who seem to be out that time of evening! LOLLOL On second thought just order your stuff online and have it delivered!!! That way you do not have to “deal” with anyone! and can save that RAGE for the roadways where it belongs! LOLLOL Good luck and happy shopping!

  • Made this for national ice cream day!!
    oh my. the flavor is fantastic.
    i do think i made a mistake somewhere as it started melting REALLY quickly- but i think that is my fault— either not churning it long enough or not letting it thicken enough when cooking the base!!
    but it is definitely an ice cream i will attempt again!!
    rich. creamy. delicious.
    thank you!!
