White Dream Ice Cream

white dream ice cream recipe

White Dream Ice Cream – Homemade vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, and white chocolate chips is a vanilla lovers ice cream dream.

Many years ago, I worked in an ice cream shop that made all of its ice cream. White Dream was one of our signature flavors. It is a vanilla base with white chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. I am not sure the exact recipe, but this is close. I use my Vanilla Bean Ice Cream as a base for all of my flavors, and it makes such a smooth, creamy, and rich base. I love it. I cannot wait to make some raspberry and peach when we settle down and get into our new house.

I am typing this post from Denver, Colorado. We have had a wonderful trip so far. Today we spent the day with good friends and toured the Coors Brewery. Tomorrow, we are going to make a big push and get to our final destination in Kansas. We will not be in a house for awhile, but it will be nice to stay in the same place for a few days. We have gotten really good at packing and unpacking the car. We have had a great trip, but we are getting really tired. So far, we have been to Salt Lake City, Cheyenne, Estes Park, Golden, and Denver. The kids get medals for how good they have been. They have been troupers. I am off to bed, I’ll see you in Kansas.

    We drove across the states from NC to CA when my brother was 6. We were in a Uhall that fit 3 people, but there were 4 of us, so we had my brother spend most of his time sleeping on the floor so that we could be more comfortable. 🙂 It was insane. I will never forget that trip, though, and I hope your kids don’t forget this one! 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      Your poor brother! We had a great time and am glad that we got to see that part of the country.

  6. Kristen

    I’ve never heard of the marshmallow trick! What a great idea!!! The ice cream looks heavenly… It’s finally starting to warm up in Sacramento, so ice cream actually sounds good now. We’re finally into the 80’s – – woo hoo!!! As you recall we’ve had
    a long winter here, so we are all happy to greet the sun!!!

    P.S. I love to see pics of the kids… They are precious!!! 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      Thanks, it helps with the dripping. It sounds like a trip to Vic’s is in order! I love Vic’s, it reminds me of the ice cream place that I worked at.

  7. Samantha

    Where in KS are you moving too? I am from Lawrence. Its a great state full of unpredictable weather.

    1. bakedbree

      We are in Fort Leavenworth, KS. I am loving it so far. Unpredictable weather and all. 🙂

      1. Samantha

        I’m glad you are enjoying it! I have a friend who moved back after 10 years in LA and she is having a hard time adjusting. I’m super happy you got to try out some BBQ. Its great! Welcome to your new home!

        1. bakedbree

          Thank you Samantha. Adjustments are hard, I think attitude had a lot to do with how well a move goes.

  8. teri@thefreshmancook

    1. bakedbree

  11. Mariya

    Hi Bree! I recently discovered your blog and I am OBSESSED! I keep noticing how cool your whisk is, and now I really want one too! Where did you get your whisk?

    1. bakedbree

      Thank you Mariya! I think that it came from Ikea, but I am not positive. I know that it was like $3.

  12. Jacqueline Snell

    I just love your site! Thank you:) and God Bless you and your new home!

    1. bakedbree

      Thank you Jacqueline!

    Um…I could top this ice cream with peanut butter sauce and only eat that for the rest of my life. I never would have dreamed up the white chocolate-marshmallow combo, what a great idea!

    1. bakedbree

      Peanut butter would be great here. Fluffer Nutter Ice Cream, you might be onto something.

  14. aletta

    Do you think I could melt the white chocolate and cut the marshmallows in smaller pieces? It’s a textural thing for the DH. Would the flavor be any less beautiful?
    I am extremely jealous of your move…I would give my left pinkie to get out of Illinois… 🙂

    1. bakedbree

      If you melt the chocolate, make sure that that it is at least room temperature before you add it to the mix. And yes about the marshmallows. It would not be any less beautiful.
