Chocolate-malt gelato

Prep 30 min
Total 60 min
Plus chilling time
Makes 3 1/2 cups



3 cups
0.0325 milk
3/4 cup
0.35 cream
1/2 cup
malted milk powder, preferably Ovaltine Classic Malt
2 tbsp
unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp
3 tbsp
2 tsp


  • WHISK 2 cups milk with cream, sugar, malted milk powder, cocoa and salt in a medium saucepan and set over mediumhigh. Bring to a gentle boil, about 6 min.
  • WHISK remaining milk with cornstarch and vanilla in a small bowl. Gradually pour into first milk mixture, whisking until smooth. Bring mixture to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low. Continue simmering, stirring constantly, and adjusting heat as needed (do not let it boil) until it reduces to 3 cups, 15 to 18 min. Pour through a fine sieve into a metal bowl and lay a piece of plastic wrap directly on surface to prevent skin from forming. Chill in freezer until cold, about 1 hour.
  • SCRAPE cold mixture into a pre-frozen ice-cream-maker bowl and churn according to manufacturer’s instructions, 30 to 45 min. Transfer to a covered container and freeze up to a month.
  • LET stand at room temperature until slightly softened before serving, about 10 min.

Tip: To get the best results, freeze the ice-cream-maker bowl at least 15 hours before using. Give it a gentle shake. If there is no sound, the bowl is ready to use.
