Pin It!


What does marshmallow ice cream taste like?

It tastes like a big, fat, gooey, sticky marshmallow.

Big, fat, gooey, sticky.

And with just 4 ingredients, it can be yours in 10 minutes flat.

Marshmallow Ice Cream

(Adapted from Vegan a la Mode)

  • 2 cups milk of choice
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1 container Ricemellow Crème, or 10 oz marshmallows (Sweet&Sara and Dandies both make vegan marshmallows) (You could probably use 10 oz Smuckers marshmallow fluff, which—albeit high in artificial ingredients—is vegan.)
  • option: 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • option: 1/2 cup graham crackers or Healthy Graham Crackers

CCK’s easy version: Combine all ingredients (except optional ingredients) and stir very well, being sure to break up any clumps of the marshmallow fluff. (My version uses the fluff. See Hannah’s version, below, if you’d prefer to use real marshmallows.)  If you have an ice cream maker, process according to manufacturer’s directions. See “nutrition” link below if you don’t have an ice cream maker. At the end, stir in optional ingredients, if using. Transfer to an airtight container, and chill in the freezer for an hour or so, until true ice-cream consistency is reached.

Or you can try Hannah’s “toasted marshmallow” version (reprinted with permission from Vegan a la Mode): Heat the broiler of your oven to high and generously grease a jelly roll pan or rimmed baking sheet. Spread the marshmallow crème out in a thin, even layer or sprinkle on the marshmallows so that none overlap. Broil for 5-10 minutes, until the top is golden brown and bubbly and your kitchen smells like a sweet campfire. Keep a very close eye on the oven the whole time, because as any camper can tell you, marshmallows go from perfectly toasted and delicious to positively incinerated in no time. Cool 15-30 minutes before proceeding. Scrape the toasted marshmallow cream or plain marshmallows off the baking sheet and into your blender. Add the remaining ingredients, and puree until smooth. Transfer the base into a smaller pitcher, and chill thoroughly for at least 3 hours before churning in your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s directions. Transfer the soft ice cream to an airtight container, and store it in the freezer for another three hours minimum, until frozen solid, before serving.

  2. Ellie says:

    Ooooh, a toss up between mango colada and red velvet!

    Looks absolutely delicious by the way!(:

  4. Allison says:

    I would definitely want to try Toffee Crunch flavor! Toffee is so good… and so is this recipe! I’m excited to try it.

  5. Brianne says:

    This looks delicious. I think we have an ice cream maker downstairs somewhere…I need to dig it out and give this a try!

    This cookbook sounds wonderful. I would LOVE to try the Pistachio Praline Ice Cream. I used to have quite the weakness for Pistachio pudding. 🙂

  6. RoseA says:

    Toffee crunch! That sounds delicious!

  7. Sabrina says:

    Wow, I just looked up Vegan A La Mode and the Pb Bombshell with some of the Jam ice cream would be great to serve at an end of summer bbq! And maybe some of your marshmallow ice cream around a bonfire later! With some of your homemade graham crackers and chocolate sauce mmmm, I’m making myself hungry already!

  8. Sarah says:

    You’ve convinced me.

    I’m buying the cookbook even if I don’t win the giveaway! 🙂
    But I’ll be making the Shirley Temple Sorbet first thing!

    1. Sarah says:

      P.S. Thanks for letting us know about this cookbook. I’m transitioning to vegan, and I think it’s just gotten a lot easier thanks to Hannah Kaminsky! 😉
      Hannah, if you’re reading this, thank you!

  9. Marissa says:

    Toffee Crunch! I have a hard time finding vegan toffee and don’t have the means to make it from scratch . YUMM

  10. Lisa says:

    Between this recipe and the sprinkles recipe, there is NO WAY I can survive without the cookbook now that I know it exists. I will have to get it from Amazon if I don’t win.

    Please pick me!

  11. Alison says:

    I’d definitely have to try the Birthday Cake ice cream first! Your blog has resulted in me buying a food processor (I have no idea how I went this long without one, really!) and having serious thoughts about an ice cream maker. More recipes like this, and that ice cream maker will be mine in no time!

  12. Lauren K says:

    Woah, this is a toughie. There are so many good recipes in there, just from taking a quick look. I think I’d have to go with Tiramisu, though. A book of just vegan ice creams? Sign me up!

  13. Melinda says:

    Red Velvet for sure! Although I’m pretty excited about this mashmallow goodness too!!

  14. I’d love to try the blueberry muffin ice cream!
    too bad that I really don’t like marshmallows… just not my thing. 😉
    Chocolate syrup – yes, I’ll stick with that!

  15. Ally Behne says:

    I want to try the red velvet! I NEVER win anything so I hope I win this one! 🙂

  16. Alexa says:

    I definitely want to try her Toasted Marshmallow version. Smores and one of the treats I miss most and I can never get ahold of vegan marshmallows when I need them.
    I recently bought a single serve ice cream machine…inspired by your blog…and would love to try all her flavors (even this winter!)
    On a side note: where are some good places to get ricemellow creme?


    1. I find it at Whole Foods in the baking aisle. I think has it too.

  17. Emma says:

    Vegan red velvet ice cream?!?
    I don’t want to wait for the giveaway winner to even be announced. Where can I buy the book???
    Besides amazon, since I don’t like buying online. Would barnes and nobles have it?

    1. If they don’t, you can always ask them to order it :).

  18. casey says:

    I have to say that I would be trying the red velvet cake first! Sounds so good!

  19. Adrienne says:

    Red velvet all the way! Would this convince my husband I need an ice cream maker? Yes. 😉

  20. Stephanie says:

    All of them sound delicious, but I’ve been in a watermelon kind of mood lately. Yum.
