Get some camping and outdoor feels this summer, even when you are home, with this egg-less S’mores Ice Cream. Roasted Marshmallows, Graham Cracker Crumbs and Chocolate Ice Cream come together for this fun summer dessert.
The only ice cream or even any kind of dessert the kiddo will have is anything with chocolate. Chocolate cake, chocolate brownies, just chocolate, s’mores, chocolate ice cream – all that brings a happy smile on that little face. But all that happiness is reserved only for chocolate though.
The husband and I are completely different from the kiddo though. You say dessert, we are there. We don’t even want to know what kind it is. We are partial to some desserts, we have a few favorites but we will eat anything and everything that is dessert.
It has been a tough summer trying to work in everyone’s dessert preferences when I make something. I want to teach the kiddo to appreciate every dessert, just like how he is not partial to any other food and would try anything. But sometimes, I want to give in and make something special for him
We go camping every year, but this is the first year that V remembers going camping and is excited about it. He was prepping for making s’mores by the campfire all through summer.
So, I thought, why not make a s’mores ice cream to make the kiddo doubly excited. And you bet, he was!
Our summer favorite Ice Cream is the ever popular Vegan Mango Ice Cream with Pistachios made with fresh mangoes and coconut milk.
S'mores Ice Cream
- 1 ¼ cup cocoa
- 2 ½ cups whole milk
