Stand’s Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

Desserts, Drinks

Lovelies! It’s Summer, aren’t you excited? I am, and this is coming from the girl who writes love letters to Winter. This week the anticipation for Summer hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m having a fun-filled Memorial weekend with Sex and the City 2 (despite the bad reviews), a screening of Purple Rain at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, BBQs, a birthday party, and I also plan on setting a bit of time aside to down a few of these cute little milkshakes.

Summer has got me so giddy that I thought it was time I roast some marshmallows (over my gas range) and throw them in a blender with vanilla ice cream–it’s absolute craziness. I think you should be crazy, too. It’s only fair.

Why is this milkshake so special? Well because it’s comes from Gourmet, who was genius enough to figure out what’s in Stand’s famous Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake.

The recipe calls for roasted marshmallows blended with vanilla ice cream, a spoonful of yogurt and a tablespoon of milk; it’s then topped with a dollop of whipped cream and a few perfectly golden marshmallows. What does this mean? It means that as your slurping this thing up, you’ll be met along the way with little speckles of toasted marshmallow-awesomeness.

This is Summer happiness. Get on it!

I recommend getting all of the ingredients ready in the blender and then toasting the marshmallows. You want your marshmallows gooey and hot when you throw them in the blender so they incorporate nicely. Marshmallows tend to get sticky and harden upon cooling down.

3 scoops vanilla ice cream (use a high quality ice cream or make your own)

1 tablespoon whole milk

I large dollop of plain yogurt

5 Kraft Jumbo Jef-Puffed marshmallows (or homemade)

Whipped cream

Toast marshamllows under a broiler, or, if you’re frisky, over a flame until they just start to blacken evenly (the trick is to make sure it’s evenly toasted and dark, but not turned to charcoal).

Put the milk, yogurt, and then ice cream in the blender. Blend carefully, just until you get a “donut”—when you see the shake holding to the sides of the blender with a hollow core.

Add three of the toasted marshmallows to the blender, and whirl it just until they’re all broken up and distributed evenly. Be careful not to overblend it, making it too melty.

Pour shake into a glass, top with a dollop of whipped cream, break the last two marshmallows on top, and serve with an extra-wide straw.

Repeat if necessary. And it will probably be necessary

    I LOVE this milkshake! I was lucky enough to try it at The Stand in NYC while visiting some friends a few years ago and immediately went home to make it in my kitchen. I use sour cream instead of yogurt, and I usually cut my marshmallows in half before toasting to make sure I get plenty of toasty flavor. The first time I made the shake, I put the marshmallows in the blender first. HUGE MISTAKE, but made for a great story later. (Picture trying to get the blade off the blender while wet, then chipping off frozen hard marshmallows with a screwdriver. Fun times!)

      Oh I can only imagine! It took me one or two tries to get this milkshake right. And the cutting the marshmallows in half is a great idea. 🙂

    Thanks for posting this recipe. I don’t even like marshmallows, and I haven’t lived in the US for over a year, but I still reminisce about this shake from time to time. I do know that a guy at Stand told me that they use gelato from ‘il labarotorio (sp?) de gelato.’ I assume that if you use gelato rather than ice cream in your recipe that it might taste even more like the original.
