Smile! Today is National S'mores Day! There is nothing like a national holiday for an excuse to indulge in a little treat like s'mores. And, today I am joining up with a few other bloggers to share our take on s'mores.
I'm not the biggest fan of s'mores, but milkshakes are right up my alley. So, I thought I'd try my hand at making a s'mores milkshake. Definitely less messy and I've been craving all things cold this pregnancy so a nice cold toasted marshmallow milkshake sounded like just the ticket.
Aria came into the kitchen while I was whipping this milkshake up. She asked what I was making, so I told her a s'mores milkshake. She said that didn't sound very good and could she just have a toasted marshmallow instead. Fast forward to my taking pictures of the end result on our back deck and asking Aria to hold the cup for a second....next thing I know she's chugging it. She was very reluctant to let me try any. When she finally did I understood her reluctance though. Cold toasted marshmallow-y ice cream, so amazing.
Do yourself a favor and mix up one for yourself!
- 9 marshmallows
- 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 graham cracker sheet
- chocolate syrup
Toast your marshmallows. You can use your broiler for this. Place your marshmallows on a baking sheet and broil for 30 seconds to a minute. Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn. Or, if you have access to a nice fire you could do them the old fashioned way.
Add the toasted marshmallows, the vanilla ice cream, and the milk to your blender. Blend well. The toasted marshmallow like to stay stuck in clumps, so it may take longer than your average milkshake to get a smooth consistency. Give it a stir to check.
Break up your graham cracker into crumbs. Pour a little bit of syrup in an empty glass around the sides. Then pour your milkshake into the glass. Top with the graham cracker crumbs and optionally another toasted marshmallow. Serve immediately.
