Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake
Every time I fly up to Manhattan, it goes something like this:

  1. Deboard Plane
  2. Pick up luggage from baggage claim
  3. Go get Shake Shack milkshake

Every. Single. Time.

Seriously, you can find me there within an hour of landing, sitting in a booth with my luggage lined up next to me, with my eyes closed, slurping up a Marshmallow Malt Shake.

Since I don’t live in NYC, I decided to come up with my own version that I can slurp up at home.

Is it the same? No. Shake Shack uses a frozen custard that is quite different from ice cream, but there’s nothing wrong with a Toasted Marshmallow & Malted Ice Cream Shake!

The first thing you do is spread out a handful of marshmallows onto a sheet pan:

Pop them under the broiler until golden brown and crispy on top:

Then take some big scoops of vanilla ice cream,

and throw it into a blender along with some marshmallow creme, milk, and malted milk powder:

Blend it all up until it’s frothy and mixed up, and top with some of those toasted marshmallows:

And you’ve got happiness in a glass.

Calories 703kcal


  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 2-4 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp malted milk powder
  • 2 tbsp marshmallow creme
  • 2 cups vanilla ice cream


  • Place the mini marshmallows on a sheet pan and stick under the broiler until lightly golden brown and toasted. This goes quickly, in a matter of about 30 seconds, so watch them carefully.
  • Place 2 tbsp milk, the malted milk powder, and the marshmallow creme in a blender. Blend for 30 seconds until everything has dissolved and mixed together. Add the ice cream and half the marshmallows, and blend until mixed. Serve with the remaining toasted marshmallows on top.


Note about the milk: Some ice creams are thicker than others, so start with 2 tbsp milk, then add more if you want a thinner milkshake.
