Roasty Toasty Milkshake by Mia Loves Pretty

The recipe is pretty loosely based on how many strawberries you want to roast, so play around with the proportions to your taste! Also, if you like a pretty thick milkshake like I do, you could probably do without, so play with this quantity depending on how liquid you like your drinks.
1-2 punnets strawberries, tops hulled off 2
1 tablespoon white sugar + extra for sprinkling
1-1.5 tablespoon water
0.5-1 teaspoon good vanilla extract (or a good blob like I did)
0.5-1 teaspoon balsamic glaze (or a good blob like I did)
Vanilla ice cream / choc chip vanilla ice cream
5-7 toasted fluffy marshmallows and a couple more for garnish (or to snack!)
30-40ml milk (or a few dashes like I did)
2 tablespoons plain or vanilla yoghurt

Roasted Strawberries

Preheat your oven to bake, 180°C. Combine and whisk the sugar, water, vanilla extract and balsamic in a small dish. Place your hulled strawberries in an oven dish, ‘pointy’ bits facing up, and drizzle the balsamic vanillery sauce over these strawberries. Sprinkle a bit of white sugar on top and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Take the strawberries out of the oven to cool down a bit. The sauce should have reduced to a syrupy liquid by the time it is fully cooled.
You can make the roasted strawberries ahead of time and have them in a jar in the fridge to keep for about a week or so!

Roasty Toasty Milkshake

This was for 2x 500ml glassful as in the pictures above. You can happily half this recipe and serve for 2 happy peeps!
Toast your marshmallows either by skewering them on a kebab stick and waving over a gas stove flame, torching with a creme brûlée gas torch, or by laying it out on an oven tray under the grill for a couple of minutes, until it is as toasty as you like your marshmallows to be!
Place in your blender: 6-7 scoops of ice cream, 5 roasted strawberries, 2 Tablespoons yoghurt, 2 dashes of milk (roughly 30-40ml), couple teaspoons of the strawberry syrup from your roasted strawberry dish, and 5-7 toasted marshmallows.
Whiz this up, taste mid-way to see if you like the taste. If it is too sweet, add more yoghurt, if it’s not sweet enough add more strawberry syrup or toasted marshmallow, if its too creamy, add a bit more milk.
Pour the mixture into your fave glasses, garnish with some toasted marshmallows, fresh strawberries, a few drizzles of strawberry sauce and another scoop of ice cream if you dare….and enjoy!
