These healthy marshmallows are delicious in every way!
When I found this video, I did the Snoopy Dance all over my living room. I may have even done a “Tom Cruz” on my couch. I’m not sure. My memory is conveniently fuzzy at the moment.
If you live the clean eating lifestyle, but miss your occasional treats, here’s a no-guilt treat for ya. Clean Eating Honey Sweetened Marshmallows! (The video uses agave, which is not clean. So I simply subbed with honey. Worked like a charm!)
=Admit it. You just did a little Snoopy Dance in your chair.
Here’s the recipe in case you didn’t have a pen and paper handy during the video.
Also, check out this recipe I did as a guest post for Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows. Yum!
Please Note: The type of gelatin you use makes a difference in how healthy they are. Gelatin has many health benefits if you use good quality stuff. I found this brand and have enjoyed it quite a bit. Also, the video above shows the technique for making these. However, the use of agave is not clean as agave is highly processed. So the recipe below calls for honey instead.
