This easy recipe for toasted marshmallow shakes will rock your milkshake world. All the flavor of toasted marshmallows in everyone’s favorite dessert drink!
I have such a major crush on that glass of deliciousness up there. It is a Toasted Marshmallow Shake. Yes, you read that right. I know it looks like it might actually be a chocolate shake, but that delectable brown color comes from blender-ized toasted marshmallows, along with some milk and some vanilla ice cream. And when you take that first sip…it’s a total toasted marshmallow in smooth, silky milkshake form.
I helped one my sweet friend Janet try this recipe out over Labor Day weekend, and speaking of sweet…this shake is almost as sweet as she is. It is sweeter than this:
It is even sweeter than THIS:

And that is pretty sweet. Here’s the deal – you spread out a bag of marshmallows onto a cookie sheet. Make sure you line the cookie sheet with foil, and if you have the nonstick kind, even better. Toast them under the broiler until they are well, well, well-done. Watch those babies closely, and stir them around a little – you want them toasted as all-over as possible. Then pop them in your blender with 2 cups of vanilla ice cream, 2 cups of milk and a tablespoon of sour cream. Blend for 5 minutes. Yes, five minutes.
Then park it in the fridge for a while until it is good and cold and presto – toasted marshmallow shake. Make sure you hold back one marshmallow to toast lightly and perch on the top. I mean, how sweet is that?
- 1 ten ounce package marshmallows
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream
- 1 tablespoon sour cream
- Preheat the broiler to high. Line a cookie sheet with foil and lay marshmallows in a single layer. Broil until very dark brown, watching constantly and stirring halfway through. Cool.
- Add milk, ice cream, sour cream and marshmallows to blender. Blend for 5 minutes. (You may have to do this in batches, depending on the size of your blender.
- Chill in refrigerator until very cold, about one hour. Top with lightly toasted marshmallow and serve!
