S’mores actually got its name from the phrase “some more”. This recipe for S’mores Milkshakes is as easy as can be, and you will definitely want more. Combine the classic s’more ingredients of chocolate ice cream, mixed with chocolate milk and top with roasted (or broiled) mini marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate. Feel free to lighten this recipe using low-fat frozen chocolate yogurt and low-fat chocolate milk or even chocolate soy milk. You may also substitute regular-size marshmallows for mini ones. Enjoy this cool treat in the heart of summertime where eating (and drinking) s’mores are so fun.
