Marshmallows are the perfect treat during fall or winter as the weather cools down. Unfortunately, store-bought marshmallows are usually loaded with refined sugar, artificial ingredients, and inflammatory seed oils. All of those things are unnecessary and actually take away from the taste of the marshmallow!
These homemade marshmallows are made with nourishing, real ingredients. They have quickly become a family favorite! Keep in mind, these marshmallows do have a significant amount of carbs in them, so its best to pair with plenty of high quality protein to balance blood sugar.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long will they keep?
These marshmallows will keep for at least a month. Once you age them, store them in an airtight container. You can actually freeze them and they will keep for at least a year (but its unlikely they'll last that long because they taste so good).
Why Perfect Supplements Gelatin Powder?
We love perfect supplements gelatin powder because it only has one ingredient: grass-fed beef gelatin. The cows are raised on pasture and it is tested glyphosate free. They have the best quality sourcing and processing that we've found. You can read more about their gelatin on their website here.

Can I use a low carb sweetener like stevia or monkfruit?
Probably! I haven't tried it personally, because I'm not a big fan of zero carb sweeteners.
Can I make these marshmallows doing an animal-based diet or carnivore diet?
Yes! Just use all raw honey for the sweetener instead of maple syrup. It's delicious! Some people doing a carnivore diet may not want to have the carbs from the honey. If so, you can try using a low carb sweetener. But I prefer using honey or maple syrup, as it tastes much more real to me!
Can you really roast homemade marshmallows?
Yes! If you dry them out / "age" them for at least 3 days exposed to air, you should be able to roast them over a camp fire. Make the marshmallows big so they don't fall off the roasting stick as easily. Watch them carefully as they can be more prone to melting off the stick. Drying them out properly & adding some arrowroot powder helps a lot with this!
