Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream

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.

    Toffee crunch! Great blog. I’m glad someone pinned you!

  2. Emily says:

    Yum !! Can’t wait to try (:

  3. Kimi says:

    Peach Melba!!! Mmmm

  4. Sami says:

    Definitely Red Velvet. <3 One of my biggest weaknesses!

  5. Carissa says:

    Impossible to choose! I’m just so excited that there are vegan ice cream options! This marshmallow ice cream will probably be where I start…

  6. Steacy says:

    Ummm…hmmm…any and all!!

  7. Robin says:

    It would be a toss-up between Mango Colada and Bluberry Balsamic. I guess it would depend on if I had mangoes or blueberries on hand. Loving your blog!

  8. Doris Johnson says:

    Toffee crunch sounds amazing! I work at Panera Bread, and we used to have this AMAZING toffee nut cookie that got replaced a few months ago with a new peanut butter cookie– still good, but I miss that toffee flavor! Toffee ice cream might just cure my craving. :)

  9. melissa says:

    red velvet all the way!

  10. P says:

    Oooh, which one would I like to try first?! Definitely not German Chocolate, because if I tried that first there’d be no second! NOTHING can follow German Chocolate and still taste good, and it would be hard to put the spoon down anyway. But I can definitely say, if I was planning on trying all the flavours, I’d have red velvet first, a kind of warm up of richness and ofc as a palette teaser with that hint of yummy dark chocolate, then the toffee, to get my mouth all sticky and act like a “glue” (as gross as that sounds), so that when I then proceeded to eat, eat, eat the German Chocolate, the taste would always remain in my mouth 😉

  11. jean says:

    def. the toffee crunch!

  12. I am so glad you tried the toasted marshmallow flavour. It sounds delicious.

    Personally, I’m torn between the Turkish Coffee flavour or the Rose Petal. I think I’ll have to flip a coin!

  13. Sara says:

    I’d love to try the vegan smores!! YUM

  14. Niki says:

    Peanut Butter Bombshell sounds yummy and Birthday Cake. I want to try all of them, truly I do, does this still count as an entry? Lol. I saw Rose Petal Ice Cream that looks interesting. In this heat, I want to eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and in between. :)

  15. Melody says:

    Black Pearl. Sounds like a wonderful flashback as a little kid with ice cream in Asia.

  16. I love marshmallow everything. I have never had marshmallow ice cream before. I cannot wait to try this!!

  17. Kate C says:

    Mango colada!!! My dad would love that sort of thing – it’s his birthday next month so I think it would make a great birthday treat! :)

  18. nik says:

    Turkish Coffee Ice Cream sounds really interesting…topped with vegan caramel sauce I think. :)

  19. Luu says:

    Woderful pictures!! <3

    I've never tried vegan Marshmallows, I don't know where to get them (in Germany).

  20. Barbara P. says:

    I would love to see the toffee crunch!

  21. Niki says:

    Peanut butter bomb shell sounds so good and rose petal seems interesting.

  22. I’d usually say red velvet, but that got ruined for me when someone told me it was just chocolate with red food coloring. :( I’ve been a lover of buttered popcorn ever since I discovered buttered popcorn jelly bellies, so that’s definitely my jam!

  23. Barb says:

    Just found your site while doing a search for banana soft serve. YUM!! I’m going to be subscribing! And the vegan a la mode book looks marvelous!

  24. Leslie says:

    I’d try toffee crunch first – Sounds so yummy!

  25. danae torre says:

    My daughter will be soooo happy to try the Red Velvet flavor. It’s her all time favorite icecream and she has been so sad since becoming gluten free. All of them look amazing :)

  26. The toasted marshmallow ice cream sounds so good and looks delicious! Yum! I think I would like to try making the German chocolate flavor first – that sounds amazing. Thanks for the nice giveaway!

  27. Kristen says:

    Toffee Crunch for sure! I would eventually try all of them though, because they all sound amazing!

  28. Barb says:

    Wait! I know! 😉
    I would make this toasted marshmallow ice cream… Then put a scoop of it in a rich, dark hot chocolate!

  29. Leora says:

    I’d love to try the Turkish Coffee or French Vanilla ice cream flavors, lovely and simple favorites. 😀

  30. Daisy says:

    Oh, I would definitely want to try the German Chocolate!

  31. Kirstin Harrow says:

  38. Mallory says:

    Mmmmmmmm Turkish Coffee!!! I don’t know how many times I’ve heard “Oh, that’s too bad” when telling someone I’m vegan … we eat SOOOO well!!! :)

  39. Mary Rose says:

    Her Strawberry and Lemon Curd sounds delish! Although I will begin my journey with your Toasted Marshmallow adaptation, and definitely with chocolate chips and graham crackers. You are so clever!

  40. Maya says:

    Toffee crunch!! Because nothing can go wrong if toffee’s involved;)

  41. Katherine says:

    I’d definitely like to try Chai first!

  42. eva says:

    would loooove this cook book!

  43. Brittany Ardito says:

    German Chocolate is the flavor I would like to try, because anything chocolate is always the best.

  44. Eco Chic says:

    Yum!! Every recipe you post makes my mouth water!! Both German chocolate and toffee crunch sound irresistible! But I think German chocolate would have to be my favorite!

  45. CanadianMama says:

    Red Velvet! I just had red velvet soft serve at Menchies and I’d LOVE to know how to recreate it! Ps. Katie, when are you getting a book out? I would buy it in a heartbeat!!

    1. Aw thank you so much! It’s going to be awhile still, but I’m working on it! Right now I’m just frustrated because I can’t share all the recipes I’m working on :(

  46. Jenn says:

    Red Velvet!

  47. steph says:

    red velvet!!! My favorite flavor in ice cream form? I love it!

  48. Jessica says:

    Probably Toffee crunch…..or german chocolate…..oh, I don’t know! :-)

  49. mackenzie says:

    I think the Toffee Crunch Sounds amazing!

  50. Hannah says:

    The Rose Petal ice cream sounds absolutely AMAZING! 😀

  51. Becky says:

    Tough choice! I’ll say mango colada for now.

  52. Anonymous says:

    if eggwhites are vegan then i guess u r right katie , marshmellow fluff is vegan! plz stop telling people that its vegan , what if they have allgergy and just took your word for it ?

    1. Alanna says:

      She lists specific brands of fluff in the recipe that are vegan… I don’t think she ever claimed they all are.

  53. Katie says:

    Can’t wait to try the toasted marshmallow :)

  54. Pamela says:

    Oh Rose Petal Ice Cream sounds so interesting! That is what I would try!

  55. Anna says:

    This looks amazing!

  56. L says:

    yum! So hard to choose, right now I would say Moose Tracks tho!

  57. Emily J says:

    Toffee Crunch sounds awesome!

  58. Sarah says:

    I would love an ice cream book!

  59. Alanna says:

    Oh my… I used Hannah’s version with mini marshmallows toasted in the oven and made a terrific mess trying to scrape the marshmallow “glue” off the pan and into my blender, but so worth it! Just be prepared that the toasted version will come out brown (depending on how dark your marshmallows are) and not white, lol. I took Katie’s suggestion and served with her graham crackers, and what a great flavor combo! I’m also happy to report that this recipe held up well in the freezer (didn’t get too hard to scoop and still tasted good two weeks later), even using Silk Pure Almond milk. Definitely a keeper!
