Weekend Splurge Recipe- Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Milkshakes Topped with Chocolate Shavings


The weekend is long over but looking back on the enjoyable parts of it always makes the week fly by a little faster for me. This was what we enjoyed over the weekend.
This is one of those amazing drinks that just looks like it's a million calories. I bet it was. But I didn't care. If you've read my "weekend splurge" posts before you will know that the weekends are my time to relax and enjoy some foods that I don't necessarily splurge on during the week. Sometimes it's just a special desert other times a deep fried food.

I am finally at a point in my weight loss journey of maintaining and toning and I can therefore allow myself certain luxuries in food that I didn't have when I was doing the hardcore dieting. But the one thing that I've learnt from my experiences of dieting is that it never helped to deprive myself completely of things that I enjoy as a treat. It is one of things that helps me stay on track with trying my hardest to stay in shape during the week. I think now that you've seen this awesome drink you are probably planning on making this weekend splurge idea a part of your weekend ritual. It was amazing. So here's the easy recipe so you can hopefully enjoy it too. This recipe was inspired by one I saw on foodnetwork.com . Perfect for a hot summer afternoon treat!

Chocolate Marshmallow Cream Milkshakes

Ingredients:

Marshmallow Cream:

1 Carton of Heavy Cream (Enough for 1/2 Cup)
1/4  Cup Marshmallow Fluff

Chocolate Milkshake:

2 Cups Milk 
1/4 Cup Chocolate Syrup
3 Cups Chocolate Ice Cream

Chocolate Chips to shave as garnish.

Method:

1. Start by whipping 1/2 cup of heavy cream 1/4 cup of marshmallow fluff. It can be done in a blender, a mixer, a hand mixer or by hand with a whisk and a large mixing bowl. Once it begins to fluff up and show some stiff peaks put the mixture to the side in the refrigerator until ready to serve the drink.

2. Then prepare the actual shake part. Put the 2 cups of  milk, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup and 3 cups of chocolate ice cream in a blender. Blend till smooth and combined but still thick.

3. Take a tall clear glass and start by putting in a spoonful or two of the chocolate shake mixture. Carefully take some of the marshmallow cream on a spoon and layer it on top of the chocolate. Try to push the cream over to the outsides so that the layer can be seen well from the outside of the glass. Then add more chocolate on top and cream again layering as much as you like as many times as you like. 

4. Shave some chocolate chip over the top as a garnish. Any other garnish you like can easily be added- fruit, nuts, marshmallows etc.

Enjoy!
