The key is to let the ice cream soften slightly before you try to blend it into a milkshake. Ice cream that's too hard will not blend properly. This is often the case with non-dairy ice cream.
This is a milkshake that's had malt powder added to it. Malted milk powder is a combination of malted barley, wheat flour, and evaporated whole milk. It gives a distinct flavor to the milkshake.
