Testing homemade marshmallow recipes

Not just ‘recipes’, because there are thousands of them on the internet (khmm pinterest).
Once a recipe came to my feed which said that ‘marshmallow in a healthier way’, and i just started to search new and new recipes with the key words ‘vegan’ and ‘corn syrup free’.
We cannot eat store bought marshmallows, because even if i found a gluten free version (usually i do), it containes sugar , a lot of sugar, and made by corn starch which also not a friend of our bloodsugar (and actually nobody’s blood sugar). Ha!

Long story short, i hooked on 2 recipes which are so easy but i warn you, the textures are a bit fluffier and softer than the one you can buy in the stores. Also they are not roast-able because they containes more ‘luiquid’ than hard part. They would just melt away (i tried roast, both).
But tastes totally amazing and the same as the store bought. Maybe i would say, putting them to a hot cocoa, these are better because totally is like you would put clouds into your drink. Yumm!

So lets start it!

Recipe #1

The original recipe is from here.

I only have changed the honey and used a Fig syrup, which is not 0 calorie, but its GI is low. So however i have to count with its CH-s, i could only eat 2 or 3 cubes at one time which is actually nothing. If you – or me- would find a syrup, which is made by a natural sweetener with 0 calorie, than you and me could eat as much as we can :-).
This marshmallow’s flavour was so intensive, i really hardly could stop to eat by the countertop.
My other advice is that whisk it quite well, that won’t be any liquid at the bottom because it could make a gelatine ‘line’ under the fluffyness, like it happened to me. But still tasted so good just maybe somebody wouldn’t love the look! :D


Recipe #2

The original recipe is from here.
This recipe worked so well and was that easy and fast, as the previous. It was a bit harder, that hard, that very carefully i could cut circles. After rolling them (very carefully) in eritrit powder-bamboofiber flour mix, it was totally like a store bought marshmallow, but as i said, it is still fluffier and softer. I think next time i would add more powder sugar or a little bamboofiber flour, to make it more ‘harder’.

This is totally zero in every way because the sweetener is 0 calorie (except xillit), it won’t lift the bloog sugar and a healthy way to have that sweeeeeet flavour.



And last but not least how it looks when melting. If you want make quick and healthy marshmallows, try one of them. Or both of them :-)
