Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream I

HI!!!! my name is Jessica and I’m an ice cream-a-holic.

Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream I

No really… it’s bad. Do you want to know how bad it is? Well.

I’ve made ice cream like, multiple times per week, for WEEKS. I made this ice cream the day after I made the buttermint ice cream, and since that was two weeks ago you can only imagine how much more ice cream I’ve made since. My freezer is overflowing and my mind… my mind is totally one track. It’s all I can think about – my next flavor, my next creamy adventure if you will. Ew. That sounds weird. Whatever.

But I’m half tempted to turn this into an ice cream only blog because my brain won’t stop churning… pun completely intended.

And since I can’t turn this into an ice cream only blog without 1. literally drowning in heavy cream and 2. annoying all of my invisible internet friends, I’m combining two of the things I love the most into one flavor: toasted marshmallow and coconut milk.

Oh and a few of you told me that yesterday was national toasted marshmallow day? Again, who the heck makes up these holidays and no, I didn’t know because I’m not hip. Not hip at allll. Let’s celebrate today, k?

Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream I

You know who’s not all about this ice cream thing? My husband. Okay wait… I shouldn’t put it that way. He loves ice cream. He actually loves ice cream more than I do. I find him closet-eating ice cream straight out of the container right over the kitchen sink almost as much as I find him shoveling chocolate chip cookies into his mouth with diet Coke in hand.

I didn’t expect him to like the buttermint ice cream because he… dun dun dun… doesn’t really like mint. Oh, except he likes the “spiciest” mint gum that BURNS THE HECK OUR OF YOUR MOUTH. Ouch is all I have to say about that. But surprise surprise… he did enjoy the buttermint. And then one day later, as I forced him to taste this ice cream (which was a feat in itself since he just had his first s’more last month and realized he actually likes marshmallows), his response was “it’s good… but I just really wish you’d make chocolate ice cream.”

Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream I

Um. What? Never once in our lifetime together… in our itty bitty relationship… has he EVER ordered, bought or scooped chocolate ice cream. Ever. He is the king of either plain vanilla with fruit (um hi, totally boring) or cookies and cream. Always. This never changes. And I’m definitely that annoying person that always tries to get him to choose new! and creative! choices while he is in starvation mode (read: hasn’t eaten in 7 minutes) and just wants some stupid food.

So what does this mean? It means I’ve made more varieties of chocolate ice cream in the last two weeks that I can count. Breakfast? Spoonful of ice cream. Made cookies? Squish ice cream in between. Coming to visit? You absolutely cannot leave this house without ice cream.

It’s cool though… he’s happy, and with my marshmallow coconut milk scoops I’m happy too. I might have enjoyed this even more than the first batch of buttermint because it stayed super creamy from the coconut milk. No, the marshmallows don’t really harden and they add this awesome chewy texture to the ice cream which I can only assume would be made even better with ripples of fudge and peanut butter and pumpkin and graham cracker. But that’s for another time.

Because you know… exactly what I need to do is make more ice cream.

Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream I


Toasted Marshmallow Coconut Milk Ice Cream

Yield: about 1 quart


3 1/4 cups full-fat canned coconut milk, mixed well so it's not separated
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff or cream
1 10-ounce bag of marshmallows, toasted


In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of the coconut milk with the cornstarch and whisk until smooth. Set aside.

In a large saucepan (Jeni recommends a 4-quart), add coconut milk, sugar and corn syrup, whisking together. Bring to a rolling boil – for me, this was over medium heat. Keep a close eye on the mixture because if it gets too hot, it will boil up and over very quickly. You want it to the point when the milk is bubbling and rolling but now boiling over. Once it comes to that point, boil for 4 minutes. I stirred occasionally here. After 4 minutes, remove from heat and very slowly whisk in the cornstarch mixture. I did it in 3 parts – adding 1/3 of it and whisking at a time. Bring back over heat and bring to a rolling boil again, this time stirring with a spatula while the mixture just thickens slightly – about 1-2 minutes.

Grab another very large bowl and fill it halfway full with cold water, adding a bunch of ice cubes as well. Remove the coconut milk mixture from heat and pour the it into a one gallon freezer ziplock bag, pushing the air out and sealing it. Place it in the ice bath for 30-45 minutes until cold, adding more ice if needed. I actually set my bag right IN the ice bath, then carefully poured in the milk.

After 30 minutes or so, pour the ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and churn according to the directions. When it begins churning, you can toast your marshmallows. If you have a gas stove you can do it that way, or you can place them under the broiler for a little less than a minute or until your desired doneness. You don't have to use the whole bag - use as many as you'd like. After 10-15 minutes of churning, add in the vanilla extract and spoonfuls of marshmallow fluff while still churning. (If you don't have an opening in your ice cream make to add, you can add the vanilla at the beginning and fold in the marshmallow at the end.) After 5 more minutes, add in the toasted marshmallows one at a time, making sure they get mixed in.

Once churned to your desired consistency, place in a freezer-safe container, add more marshmallows if desired, cover with a lid or layer of plastic wrap pressed on the ice cream, and freezer 2-6 hours.

idea from the sweet potato marshmallow ice cream in jeni's book, recipe adapted from her buttermint ice cream

    Meg @ Peaches and Cake — August 31, 2012 @ 10:28 am

    1. YOU READ MY MIND. I just pinned like 3 recipes on Pinterest for marshmallow or smores ice cream but this looks THE BEST of them all.

    2. My husband totally sneaks ice cream from the freezer too and eats it straight out of the container and I’m like, do you want a bowl with that?

    3. I could make ice cream every day too I mean I hate leaving like a little bit of half and half and heavy cream left over and sitting in the fridge all lonely and everything.

    4. I LOVE THE NEW SITE!!! It is SO CUTE and so you!

    xo, Meg

    Toasted marshmallow is like…my favorite flavor ever. (Except for salted caramel. Don’t make me choose!)

    I desperately need an ice cream maker now. I’m going home this weekend and may have to steal my mom’s….she never uses it anyway!

    LOVE the new site!!! I was wondering this morning when I couldn’t log on if some changes were in the making. WOO HOO!! Very nice! Your pictures even look better, but I don’t know how that’s even possible because they were perfect to begin with.
    And oh, the ice cream!

    Amy @Macncheesenpeas — August 31, 2012 @ 10:36 am

    Your new site design is soooooo lovely! I reallly really like it. I think your photo of the flaming marshmallow is like award winning quality. Well done! (pun also intended)

    Elizabeth — August 31, 2012 @ 10:37 am

    I am IN LOVE with the facelift! Soo cute!!! I admit I had a minor panic attack when there wasn’t a new recipe at 7 am this morning.. Then the next 567347 I refreshed the web page and saw that you were doing some maintenance my curiosity got the best of me.. So worth the wait!

    I’m mad about ice cream and eat it almost every day.. I most recent discovered the Ben and Jerry’s Blueberry Graham Frozen Greek Yogurt.. OH EM Gee. I don’t even like Greek yogurt?! Unfortunately it’s like $4.99 for a little pint or something like that (despite this I have probably 6 pints in my freezer.. Yup I said it) but I think it’s time to recreate our (your, mind you) own version .. Have you tried it? I bet if you recreated that my mind would be blown forever! This marshmallow coconut combo sounds pretty to die for though I must say. Did you try anything with Biscoff yet? One more question.. What I’ve cream maker do you use? I’m sure you mentioned it in the past but I can’t remember. I use the small stainless steel cuisinart one which I love, but it’s annoying cuz I need to refreeze the bowl-thingy for like days after just one small batch.. Maybe that’s a good thing? :)

    Already tweeted this at you but I seriously cannot get over your cute sprinkle heart in your header.

    Also, might skip celebrating a friends birthday at the bars tonight to make this. Does that make me a bad friend?


    • Nicole — August 31st, 2012 @ 2:15 pm

      Well..if I was your friend and you stayed in to make me this ice cream, I would think you were the best friend on earth.

    Shannon — August 31, 2012 @ 11:50 am

    Addendum…Becuase I know someone will comment that marshmallows aren’t vegan.

    Vegan (if made with dandies and rice mellow creme) ice cream shangri la. Pardon my craziness


    • Jessica — August 31st, 2012 @ 11:51 am

      Hahahah so funny! I actually didn’t write that it was vegan in the recipe FOR that exact reason… :)

    Averie @ Averie Cooks — August 31, 2012 @ 12:08 pm

    The ice cream looks great and sounds awesome but your site makeover — AWESOME girl! It’s gorgeous! Hope it went off without a hitch. I know these things are pretty white knuckle-ish sometimes – job well done!

    natalie@thesweetslife — August 31, 2012 @ 12:20 pm

    love the facelift!!

    aaaaaand i’m also dealing with an ice cream obsession. my new hobby? going to ice cream shops, trying their most outrageous flavor, and then coming home and recreating. this week it was sunday brunch ice cream (aka cinnamon ice cream with bits of french toast in it). next up: munchies ice cream. i’m pumped (and excited to see your next ice cream!)


    • Jessica — August 31st, 2012 @ 3:42 pm

      I like this hobby! May take it up myself.


  37. #
    Vicki @ WITK — August 31, 2012 @ 12:32 pm

    I dont have a gas stove, can I use one of those bic candle lighter torches? :) I’m all over this coconut ice cream though, sounds fab.


    • Jessica — August 31st, 2012 @ 3:42 pm

      Not gonna lie… I’ve totally used one of those lighters before.

    Love the facelift! And the ice cream, no doubt.

    So random — I had a dream last night in which you, your husband, me, and my brother (??) were all hanging out. Just talking and laughing and such. It was a fun dream . . . but REALLY random!!! :-)


    • Jessica — August 31st, 2012 @ 3:41 pm

      That is awesome.

    Victoria — August 31, 2012 @ 1:35 pm

    I am loving the facelift! It’s beautiful!

    And that ice cream! Umm, yes please?!?! Amazing. And I like the fact that there aren’t eggs in it. For some reason, I’m anti-egg when it comes to ice cream recipes. I’m weird like that.

    Looking forward to more ice cream recipes! :)

    Megan — August 31, 2012 @ 1:57 pm

    Love the recipe, but the new colors make it really difficult to read everything.


    • Jessica — August 31st, 2012 @ 3:41 pm

      Thanks for the feedback! Can you be more specific? Is it just harder to read the recipe since the background is in aqua? Because the post font and font color are the same with the white background as they were before… any details you can give me would be great – just want to make it the best I can. Thanks!

    Combining my two loves? Oh yes. Ohhh yes… and I’m with everyone else on this – graham cracker crust MUST be made for this! Mmmmm…
    and I’m LOVING the new design! Not that there was anything wrong with the previous version, but a face-lift is always a good way to refresh the mind! ALSO BLUEEE… :D
