A Hinton family tradition from WAAAAAAYYY back is Peach Malt. That's what all the Hinton family calls it, but it's not really a malt. It's a . . . smoothie? milkshake? I don't know, but it's good. It's kind of evolved over the years. When I first joined the family ( that's a long time ago!) it was made with just frozen peaches, sugar and milk blended in the blender. But now Ken adds vanilla ice cream. So I guess it's a smoothie changed to milkshake. Ya, that's what it is. I know others of the Hintons add lemon juice, or bananas, and I don't know what all else. I guess we all have our own version. Ken's family had an orchard with many peach trees. They would always freeze peaches and then make these throughout the year- usually on Sunday evenings. We continued the tradition as we have three peach trees. Many Sunday nights and family home evening nights we have this for a treat. My husband always makes it. I watched him make it, and this is what he did:
Fill the blender about 1/3-1/2 full of frozen peaches (about two cups)
Add 1/4-1/3 cup sugar
Add several scoops of vanilla ice cream, then fill the blender container with milk. Blend til it's all well blended and smooth. Enjoy!
