Our week of delicious fun continues! This particular recipe was on the menu for later in the week, but an injury at school today left my youngest daughter eating soft foods and in desperate need of ice cream. Enter the “S’mores Milkshake” from Spoonful of Flavor. 🙂
- 5 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
- 6 large marshmallows (we used the stackers from yesterday)
- 3 tablespoons white milk (the higher fat the better, of course, but it was just fine with 1%)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla greek yogurt
- graham cracker crumbs (or graham crackers)
- chocolate shavings, etc (we used mini chips)
1. Turn on broil setting in oven.
2. Line marshmallows on cookie sheet. Broil for approximately a minute, until they’re nicely toasted.
3. Flip the marshmallows over and repeat. Broil until they’re nicely toasted. (Oh my gosh, you guys. These are legit “roasted marshmallows” in a couple of minutes, indoors. Way better than the microwave, for future reference…)
4. Combine ice cream, milk, and yogurt in a blender. Blend into a milkshake. (Seriously, I don’t know how else to describe that. Because can I PLEASE sing the praises of this blender? Friends who come over that happen to use it go home and order one. In high-level, professional kitchen surveys and research it outscores the popular Vitamix in every area except the ability to heat soup, and costs about 50% less. And it has a button that starts intermittent cycles to make perfect snow cones, smoothies, etc. And milkshakes.)
5. Stir in toasted marshmallows and blend until evenly mixed.
6. Serve with graham cracker crumbs and chocolate. Make sure you’ve doubled or tripled the recipe 😉
This recipe served our family of 5 with a very small portion each. The original recipe suggests it is two servings, which would be more appropriate – though a rather hefty portion of milkshake.
It was a very good milkshake. It really, really didn’t taste like marshmallow or s’mores to any of us. Take that with a grain of salt, but this is one of those recipes I’d probably tweak (chocolate milk or ice cream? mint add-ins?) to make a different milkshake for a different week.
I do have to wonder if the greek yogurt wasn’t a perfect addition, because the shake really was tasty. Let me know if you try it!
