Nutella and Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

Paris in summer, sans air-conditioning, requires a touch of resourcefulness. In our household, we tend to favour the "strip down to underwear/diaper and loll in front of fan" technique, but for the days that require clothes, we opt for iced beverages.

Our current favorite is this Nutella and marshmallow milkshake. It tastes every bit as decadent as it sounds, and is an extraordinarily naughty treat for moms trying to regain pre-pregnancy figures. (Ahem.)

Feel free to get creative with the ice cream flavour you use - I've used cookie dough and toffee crisp when classic vanilla couldn't be found in the freezer aisle.

Nutella and Marshmallow Milkshake

2 ½ cups ice cream (vanilla, usually)
1 cup whole milk
½ cup Nutella
6-8 roasted marshmallows

1. Place marshmallows on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Place under grill/broiler and toast until  the tops are light brown (approx. 3 minutes.)
2. Put all ingredients in a blender & top with fresh or toasted marshmallows


  1. It is preferable that the spouse or partner clean the mixer after the delicious, sticky elixir is made - you are rubbish at washing up.
