All the fluff & fun without the sugar, corn syrup & other unnecessary ingredients!
Typical store-bought marshmallows are full of sugar, corn syrup, dextrose (another name for sugar), tetrasodium pyrophosphate, natural & artificial flavours, & blue 1. However, there is something very nostalgic, especially during the holidays, about adding some fluffy marshmallows to a hot chocolate or warm drink! So I wanted to re-create these yummy, fluffy, fun additions with better-for-you ingredients that anyone can make from home!
How can marshmallows benefit your health?
Not only do these contain zero sugar, as they are sweetened with my favourite natural sweetener that won’t raise your blood sugar, but they also contain beef gelatin. What the heck is that you may be asking? Well, it is a protein that is rich in the amino acid, glycine. Glycine helps nourish & build the mucosal lining of the GI tract. This is why collagen &/or gelatin is often recommended for those with leaky gut or digestive issues. This amino acid may also benefit people with anxiety since it has inhibitory actions in the brain.
Gelatin has also been shown to help improve joint pain, benefit your skin & nails, as well as keep your bones & heart healthy. For more information on gelatin & its benefits, this article lays it all out really well!
