Trust me, you’ll love this diner staple! I’d never heard of it either, but now I’m a convert.
2 tablespoons Ovaltine (or your favorite sweetened malted milk powder)
4 ounces milk
4 ounces seltzer*
Pour the milk into a tall glass.
Add the Ovaltine and stir until completely blended.
Gently and slowly pour in the seltzer while stirring vigorously- bringing the foam up to the top of the glass.
Pop in a straw and enjoy!
*Freshly made seltzer works best, or a freshly opened bottle will do- the more carbonation, the better.
