Servings: 2 servings
Two of summer's best flavors: toasted marshmallow and blueberries, together in one frosty and delicious treat!
Place two tall drinking glasses in the freezer.
Preheat your ovens broiler.
Thread the marshmallows onto metal skewers and place them a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Slide the baking sheet under the broiler and DO NOT WALK AWAY! Watch them closely and remove them from the oven as soon as they are golden brown - you can even keep the oven door open a crack to watch them. They will be ready in less than 30 seconds.
Place the ice cream, blueberry sauce and milk into a blender. Add in the toasted marshmallows. Blend on high until the mixture is completely combined and smooth. (The amount of milk can be adjusted up or down depending on the thickness you'd like.)
Pour into chilled glasses, add straws and serve immediately. Makes about two 2-cup servings.
- Be sure that the Blueberry Sauce is cool or cold so it won't melt your ice cream. Better yet, make it a day or two before and have it waiting in the fridge.
- Under a broiler the marshmallows will brown very quickly. I learned the hard way that you have to stay right by the oven - if you walk away or get distracted they will burn! Fortunately you'll only be waiting less than 30 seconds and they'll be perfectly toasted.
- Not surprisingly the marshmallows get sticky after they're toasted. Parchment paper on the baking sheet makes it much easier to remove them.
- There are lots of ways to toast marshmallows! Thread marshmallows onto metal skewers and place them under the broiler in your oven. If you don't have metal skewers place rows of marshmallows on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. You can also hold a marshmallow on a skewer over a gas or electric stove burner to brown it. If you have a hot coal or gas grill either of those would work. And, if you're lucky enough to own a mini brulée torch then you can torch those 'mallows!
