Howdy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I love the taste of Ovaltine, but as it's made from milk and the like, it's getting the boot. So, I was wondering if anyone knew of something vegan that tasted similiar. It doesn't even have to be chalk-full of vitamins like Ovaltine. All I'm looking for is that malt-ish taste to indulge myself in. ^^<br><br><br><br>
For those who don't know what Ovaltine is:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ovaltine" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ovaltine</a><br><br><a href="http://www.ovaltine.co.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.ovaltine.co.uk/</a>

Not really on topic, but I absolutely HATE those Ovaltine commercials!<br><br><br><br>
EDIT: I've never had Ovaltine. What <i>is</i> the texture like?

Just hunt round the aisle(sp?) in the supermarket that has all the hot chocolate stuff for one without milk/whey powder then add soymilk instead of milk.

Ovaltine is a thick chocolate milk drink that has a lot of vitamins. It comes in powdered form and you add it to milk.</div>

You don't have to add milk. The kind I prefer actually only requires you to add boiling water to the powder. It's just that it's uses milk as an ingredient.<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for the suggestions, y'all. Looks like I have a little supermarket searching ahead of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I saw malt flavored soymilk at the asian market. Vitasoy made it. I wonder if that would be similar.

i reckon if you bought some of <a href="http://www.goodnessdirect.co.uk/cgi-local/frameset/detail/582522.html" target="_blank">this</a> and stirred a bit of it into some hot soya milk, it'd taste reeaaaallly similar.<br><br><br><br>
not that i've tried it, but still, its probably worth a go for 89p a jar. holland and barrett or your other local healthfood shop should have this stuff.<br><br><br><br>
ovaltine has cocoa in it as well as malt extract, so you might wanna use chocolate soyamilk, or put some cocoa powder in it too.<br><br><br><br>
alternatively, you could buy powdered rice/soya milk, and powdered malt extract, and caster sugar, and concoct your own special blend to keep in a jar and add water too.
