This S’mores Shake Recipe is the result of a couple of serious obsessions found in our home. I have a serious s’mores fetish. SERIOUS, people! If it says “s’mores” in the title I will Pin it. No joke. Just ask my sister. She is almost as bad as I am!
My husband is a foodie. He loves to cook and experiment, although he rarely has time since he’s an exhausted and overworked medical resident. But milkshakes are not time consuming or preparation-intensive, so ever since my dad got one of the amazing Vitamix blenders my husband has developed a milkshake fetish akin to my s’more fetish.
And then we decided to combine our passions, and thus it was born: the S’mores Shake. It’s easy and simply divine. Want to make one for yourself? Here ya go!
* Large Marshmallows
* Milk (whole is richest, but any will do)
* Vanilla Ice Cream (high quality stuff will give you the best results — we love Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla)
* Chocolate Sauce (for drizzling)
* Graham Crackers (for crumbling)
This delicious milkshake is essentially a roasted marshmallow shake with s’mores trimmings. We use a Vitamix mixer, which is quite large, so you may have to shrink this recipe down some for your own mixer.
Begin by prepping the marshmallows. Did you know that you can toast them in the oven? You can! I think that discovery may have a very bad effect on my waistline….
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set your oven to broil. Move your oven shelf to the top setting so that your marshmallows can broil properly. Line about 20-25 large marshmallows up on the parchment paper and put them in the oven to broil. LEAVE THE OVEN DOOR CRACKED AND WATCH THEM! It only takes about 30 seconds.
Take them out and let them cool for a bit. Then flip them over and toast the other side using the same technique.
Time to get blending! Don’t forget: we used a large blender, so you may want to reduce these amounts!
Time to add your marshmallows! *Reserve a marshmallow for the top of each shake that you are making! It’s the perfect garnish!* Blend very well.
My husband thought I was nuts when I said that we should add all twenty, but I was right. It was marshmallow rich and oh-so-divine. You may want to only add a portion of them since this is the part that seemed thicker and slower to blend. 20 marshmallows is a lot of stickiness for a blender to take, even a Vitamix! Luckily, the Vitamix has a handy feature where you can use a stick-thingy (yes, that is the official name for it…) to push down the items in the blender to help them blend, as demonstrated below by my handsome hubby.
Done blending! Time to garnish! Crumble graham crackers and either layer them into your shake or sprinkle on top. Do the same with drizzles of chocolate sauce. We used a hot fudge sauce. Top with your toasted marshmallow and you are done!
Now eat up! YUMMMM….. You won’t be sorry that you tried this!
What is your food obsession? Are you a fellow s’mores or milkshake lover? What makes you Pin like mad?
