Whether you have run out of a specific ingredient, you have a dietary requirement, or you simply enjoy a bit of variety, there are plenty of ways you can adapt this toasted marshmallow coffee milkshake recipe. While it may seem like a tall ask, as long as you have well-stocked shops near you, it is perfectly possible to make this milkshake dairy-free. You'll need your preferred dairy-free milk option, we recommend oat or coconut milk for this recipe, and also a dairy-free vanilla ice cream. The milk powder can simply be omitted, as can the optional topping of whipped cream, although vegan versions of instant whipped topping do exist.

Chocolate is a great addition to this recipe. Simply drizzle some chocolate sauce around the inside of the glass, top your milkshake with a few extra squirts of chocolate sauce, or add some to the blender before mixing your drink. You could also opt to use chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla. Chocolate is a wonderful pairing for both coffee and marshmallows, making the flavors in this milkshake even more delicious. To step up your milkshake game even further, you could make this a s'mores coffee milkshake with the addition of some graham crackers: Add a few to the blender and use a few more to garnish the milkshake, along with a hearty drizzle of chocolate sauce.

How Can This Toasted Marshmallow Coffee Milkshake Recipe Be Stored?

Milkshakes are definitely best when they are freshly mixed, the ice cream adds a chill to the drink and helps to keep everything deliciously thick, just as a milkshake should be. However, in the unlikely event that you have some leftovers, there are a few methods you can use to store milkshakes. The consistency may change a little depending on which option you choose.

One method is to simply cover the milkshake leftovers and store them in the fridge overnight. Just give everything a good stir before consuming; it will still taste delicious. However, storing the milkshake this way will mean that the mixture is thinner, as the ice cream that helps to keep the drink thick will not stay frozen in its solid form in the fridge. Of course, you can always add an extra scoop or two of ice cream when you re-blend the milkshake. The other option you have is to freeze any leftovers, which will solidify the mixture. This can then be removed from the freezer when you are ready for it, meaning it can be stored for a longer time. Let the milkshake leftovers stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before adding them to a blender along with a splash of milk. Blend to achieve that perfect, thick consistency, and enjoy!
