When this recipe was posted on Smitten Kitchen last year, I was with Danielle in Atlanta and for sure said “I’m making this as soon as I get home!”. Well we all know what happened after that: two weddings, one case of bronchitis, and major summer fruit FOMO meant there wasn’t a lot of time for s’moresy things in my kitchen.
I made a half-hearted attempt to make this at some point in the Fall when I got my kitchen torch, but I tried to use frozen yogurt and almond milk. I mean, really.
I finally went all in on this milkshake last weekend when the Haagen-Dazs was on sale at my grocery store and I took it as a sign. Into the blender goes a whole tray of toasted marshmallows, vanilla ice cream, milk, a spoonful of greek yogurt and a little bit of vanilla bean paste. Whoa. Anyone reading this knows I have a major sweet tooth, and even I say this was teetering on the edge of too sweet for me. But as if I could resist this toasty delight!
Side note: As I was enjoying this, I realized I am not a milkshake person. I’ve only ever made two other types (both Baked Sunday Morning projects), and I don’t think I’ve ever ordered one in a restaurant , except coincidentally in Atlanta at Flip Burger, no doubt because we saw this post while we were there. I also don’t think I’ve had a Wendy’s Frosty since the 90s. Are they still a thing?
Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake
Source: Smitten Kitchen
Yield: this is 1/2 the recipe and makes 1 generous or two reasonably sized milkshakes
5 oz big marshmallows
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 cup vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp greek yogurt
+ extra marshmallows for garnish
- Preheat your broiler, and move a rack close to the upper third of the oven. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Spread out the marshmallows and broil until golden brown. WATCH CLOSELY, they’ll burn so fast. I flipped my marshmallows over and broiled on the other side too. Let cool (you can speed this up in the fridge or freezer).
- I have an immersion blender, so I added the marshmallows, milk, vanilla bean paste, ice cream and yogurt to a big measuring cup and blended it up!
- Add to a glass with a few extra toasted mallows on top!
