Friday Frock and Fizz

As soon as I caught a glimpse of this Proenza Schouler silk dress (with belt) my style-driven heart sang. The overall look captures my senses in a way like nothing else, for I am always smitten by a veiled hat. Taking a cue from the fizz in front of Rose Byrne, I present to you the most perfect marshmellow milkshake.

I first discovered the recipe here, originally created by Joy the Baker. The Toasted Marshmellow Milkshake lends an original vibe, just as unique as the print featured on today’s frock. Cheers, lovelies!

  • 8-10 large marshmallows
  • 8-10 skewers
  • 3 large scoops vanilla ice cream or a heaping 1-cup of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Place marshmallows on skewer and toast until slightly charred over a gas flame. If you don’t access to a gas range, you can toast the marshmallows on a sheet tray in the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes. Keep an eye on the marshmallows as they’re in the oven – they’re liable to catch on fire pretty quickly. Place on a plate to cool slightly.
In a blender mix together ice cream, milk, vanilla extract and toasted marshmallows. Save one or two toasted marshmallows to top the milkshake(s). Blend well. For a thinner milkshake add more milk. If you’d like it a bit thicker… add more ice cream.
Pour into glasses and top with toasted marshmallows.
