I used to hate marshmallows in anything except s’mores. Even then, it was an “only when there is a campfire” type of thing.

Lucky charms…ew.

S’mores poptarts…pass the cinnamon sugar ones please.

Fluffernutter…I can get behind that because it’s a spread, not a marshmallow.

Rocky road…did not even get a chance.

Enter: Ragnar Cape Cod and Dandies

We were sponsored by this amazing vegan company and at three in the morning, eating a bag of marshmallows just sounded like a logical thing to do.

I forgot about the horrors that is Lucky Charms, and gave them a chance. Brain, meet sugar.

Ellie is now a fan!

I have been eating banana ice cream for the past week for dinner because, let’s face it, it’s hot outside and it’s delicious.

My job serves ice cream and one flavor we have is rocky road. Rocky Road is a huge hit with older folks ironically. Kids don’t seem to be phased too much, but the 50 plus crowd gets excited that we carry this iconic flavor.

I mean, what’s not to like? Chocolate, walnuts, marshmallow swirl. It hits a lot of sweet spots. I get it now.

Dandies has opened my eyes to the delicious way these flavors work together.

I had to recreate it for dinner last week. So that’s just what I did.

All you need for this recipe is a few simple ingredients and a food processor.

The aquafaba whipped cream on top? Purely optional, I just became obsessed with this easy whip so I’m putting it on everything.

I also want to take this time to introduce Philosophie Superfoods to everyone! If you’ve followed my Instagram for the past month or so, you may have noticed that I’ve been adding some new powders to my oats and breakfasts.


Philosophie Superfoods is a wellness company whom I have partnered with for my future nutrition. They have a big selection of protein powders and coconut butters all fortified with superfoods like spirulina, chlorella and cacao to not only help me recover caloric ally, but also reduce inflammation, soreness and chance of injury.

The most important thing for me post workout is calories, which Philosophie powders and butters provide. However, the micronutrients like magnesium, zinc, b12 and other vitamins are also essential to optimal performance. They help with the little things, protection me from illness, injury, fatigue and overtraining. I am proud to be affiliated with this company.

Their powders mix great into smoothies, oats and banana ice cream and provide an exceptional flavor and nutritional boost. The coconut butters are great by themselves or as a topping to warm oats or a Microwave Banana Bread Bowl.

Now for the recipe you’ve been waiting for!

Try this vegan spin on a classic ice cream flavor. Your grandparents won’t be able to tell the difference!


Rocky Road Banana Ice Cream

Serves: 1

3 frozen bananas

4 T almond milk (optional but I think it’s creamier)

1 T Philosophie superfoods Cacoa Bliss powder or cocoa powder

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1/4 cup Dandies mini marshmallows

In a food processor, place the bananas and crush them until they are “mealy”. Scrape down the sides and add the milk and cocoa powder. Blend until mixture resembled chocolate soft serve. You have need to scrape down the sides of your machine one or two more times. Scoop out of processor and into your bowl. Stir in walnuts and marshmallows.

Top with desired toppings.

You can eat it now and it’s perfect. I eat slow, so I put it in the freezer for about a half hour and then eat it as it softens.

What flavors do your grandparents like?

Anyone also love aquafaba?

  1. I thought I was the only one who didn’t like marshmallows! And don’t even get me started on the marbits in Lucky Charms. Ew is right! But, seeing as you, fellow in marshmallow dislike, enjoy Dandies perhaps I’ll give them a go. The protein powder sounds fab though. Hope you are having a good week Ellie. Enjoyed hearing about your recent marathon success. I am in awe of your running prowess.

    1. Thank you Sarah! Dandies do taste like marshmallows (so I probably wouldn’t like them outside of this recipe) but I encourage you to try them. They are a fantastic company!

  2. That recipe looks SO good! I love smores, so I do like marshmallows! I used to love lucky charms as a kid. I have never heard of this brand, but I will have to check out what different items they have!

  3. I’m definitely not in the 50+ crowd but I do love Rocky Road ice cream! I also like your version because I can’t really handle dairy, so a vegan option really is way better for me. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I do enjoy mint chocolate chip every once in a while. My coworker is obsessed with that! She eats the bottom of each 2 lb tubs that we are about to throw away!

  4. Ellie, the marshmallows were the best part in Lucky Charms!! I didn’t like marshmallows straight up though as they’re kind of chalky. So I get why you didn’t like them. However, this ice cream looks AMAZING! 🙂 I LOVE rocky road, so I’ll have to try out your healthier vegan version.
