Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

Have I mentioned how much I love milkshakes?

This milkshake may not look like much, but trust me when I tell you it is heavenly. I love ice cream, always have and I am sure I always will. Growing up I loved making milkshakes with my mom. She had one of those old fashioned mint green milkshake makers from her mom. I am pretty sure the metal cup and old fashioned shake maker made them taste better. I wonder if she still has that thing. I would ask her for it, but Zack already thinks I have too many kitchen gadgets....

Now let's talk about this shake. You know I love S'mores based on all my previous posts, so obviously I am going to love a toasted marshmallow shake. I once attempted to add some chopped milk chocolate this shake to make it more s'mores like and it was a nice addition, but I think I preferred it without. I may try to mic in some graham cracker crumbs next time, but really it is perfect as is and needs nothing.

Toasted Marshmallow Shake
recipe adapted from Spike Mendelshon

makes 2 servings

1/2 of a 1lb bag of jumbo marshmallows
1 cup whole milk
1 cup good vanilla ice cream (I like Breyers)
Homemade whipped cream

Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread the marshmallows on the baking sheet and place in the oven until nice and brown. Let cool.

In a blender, mix the milk, ice cream, and all but two marshmallows. Blend until smooth. Pour into two glasses and top with whipped cream and reserved marshmallows. Serve immediately.
