3 Ingredient Creamy Marshmallow Ice Cream

LAST UPDATED: Apr 20, 2021 | PUBLISHED: Mar 09, 2021 | By:

This easy, creamy Marshmallow Ice Cream recipe made with just three ingredients, in minutes.

I should call this post can’t stop, won’t stop, because it’s clear that I have an ice cream and baking addiction. When you combine the two of them together? Incredible.

Over the weekend, Chris and I enjoyed a light picnic at Forest Park and went to a nearby restaurant for dessert (because date nights always justify dessert). They offered a warm brownie topped with marshmallow ice cream.

I was completely intrigued by the marshmallow ice cream and so we took a chance and ordered it (I mean, I was risking a lemon tart!) It tasted like frozen marshmallow cream and I immediately knew I had to make my own for the girls.

Why hadn’t I thought of this before? One of my favorite toppings blended into frozen custard is marshmallow cream. I couldn’t wait to put a scoop of it on top of my cookie cobbler!

It’s amazing on its own and the perfect compliment to just about every dessert. It pairs exceptionally well with peanut butter, chocolate and even lemon!

Marshmallow ice cream, like most of my ice cream recipes, only requires a few minutes hands on time, 3 ingredients, and a few hours of patience while it sets. It blends beautifully with my chocolate ice cream and is also perfect for dipping peanut butter cookies.

Marshmallow Ice Cream Ingredients

  • Heavy Cream – Also known as whipping cream. This serves as the foundation and makes it light, fluffy and creamy!
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk – This secret ingredient that makes ice cream extra creamy while adding sweetness!
  • Marshmallow Fluff – Also known as marshmallow cream.

Variations

  • Rocky Road Ice Cream – Fold in 1/2 cup of nuts and 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (see my Chocolate Ice Cream recipe).
  • S’Mores Ice Cream – Swirl in fudge, Chocolate Sauce or 1/2 cup chocolate chips, and a half cup (or more) crushed graham crackers.
  • Fluffernutter Ice Cream – Swirl in 1 cup of creamy peanut butter to make a magical, classic combination.

Tips

  • Use very cold whipping cream for best results.
  • Too much? Just pour the mixture into 4 miniature ceramic loaf pans (available at Michael’s for just $1). Enjoy one yourself and share the others with neighbors and friends. This ice cream is a little more solid than my other recipes which makes it perfect for gifting.
