These Sugar Free Marshmallows have become a summer and winter staple! Traditional marshmallows are filled with sugar, corn syrup, and other highly questionable ingredients that the human body should not have to deal with. Luckily, there is a solution to still have marshmallows that 1. taste good, 2. are good for you- and bonus…even help grow your hair and nails!

If you want to make an INCREDIBLE s’more recipe- make these marshmallows with these graham crackers, slap on this homemade dark chocolate and there you have one upgraded  superfood dessert that will rock your taste buds AND your body (in a good way).

quality and pure gelatin is actually an amazing nutrient- when sourced properly! I recently wrote a post on the benefits of gelatin, the ultimate beauty food here. I recommended purchasing gelatin from Vital Proteins or Great Lakes. These sources are clean, from pasture raised animals without chemicals or hormones.

I recommend this quality and pure gelatin or this gelatin, both of these sources are clean, from pasture raised animals without chemicals or hormones.

Options

I provided several options here for making different variations, depending if you want to make them sugar free(with stevia), or use a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup.

Typically you need a hand mixer or mixing machine, but I also provided one recipe you can simply use a blender for.

Notes for Sugar-Free Marshmallows:

  • Blending times will vary based on the blending technique you use.
  • If using stevia you will have to beat the marshmallows longer
  • If using maple syrup or honey the beating time will be less
  • Beating time can change depending on how hot your water is.

FAQ

One common question I hear is “why did mine get a gummy layer on bottom? A couple areas to look into for that.

  1. water may not have been hot enough
  2. marshmallows were not beaten long enough

Ingredients



Recipe Cooking Instructions


For Chocolate and Vanilla Marshmallows Using Mixer

  1. Place the 3 tbsp gelatin into the bowl of a  mixer along with 1/2 cup water.
  2. Mix together and let sit for 5 minutes to gel.
  3. Get the whisk attachment if using a machine or ready or get out a hand mixer
  4. In a small saucepan , heat up 1/2 cup water over medium high heat. (If using honey or syrup to sweeten, add this to the water in this step!)
  5. Once the water reaches just about boil temperature, remove from the heat.
  6. Turn the mixer on low speed and, while running, slowly pour the hot water down the side of the bowl into the gelatin mixture.
  7. Once you have added all of the water, add in vanilla extract and liquid stevia, and increase the speed to medium.
  8. Beat at medium-high for 1-2 minutes than increase speed to high.
  9. Continue to whip until the mixture becomes slightly thick, approximately 7-10 minutes.
  10. Use any pan- a bread loaf pan works well. Lightly grease your pan with some coconut oil.
  11. Once your marshmallow mixture is starting to look like it has some body to it, pour the mixture into the pan.
  12. Allow to sit in fridge until set.
  13. Once marshmallows have set for a few hours you can start to cut into desired shapes.
  14. Store in an airtight container in fridge.
