Marshmallow recipes call for eggs.Thus, a regular marshmallow has 4 grams of added sugar, and let’s admitsit; almost no one eats a single one!
Marshmallows are incredibly cool -not only do they taste good, but by lighting them you can create a great source of light in a dark campsite!
Those puffy, sticky white cubes known as marshmallows are a staple for camping trips, hot cocoa and desserts, but they aren’t a healthy food choice.Too much sugar in the blood can bring to severe health issues:
Insulin resistance and diabetes
Several cancers, such as pancreatic cancer
Teeth issues, like cavities
We suggest this simple way of healthy preparation of the marshmallows.
1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoon gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
In a medium bowl, pour quarter cup of water and add the gelatin over it.
You should grease a loaf pan a bit, and cover it with parchment paper and grease it as well. Then, add another quarter cup of water, the salt and honey in a small pot and place over medium heat. Bring the mixture to 240 degrees. This temperature is reached in 7-8 minutes.Add the hot syrup to the gelatin mixture carefully, using a hand mixer on low.A genuine quality produced food gelatin has rather quite high protein content; it contains around 86% of protein. Pour the hot mixture in a side of the bowl.
Add the vanilla, and beat for 15 minutes on high speed, in order to get a thick mixture. Vanilla is a flavoring derived from orchids of the genus Vanilla, primarily from the Mexican species, flat-leaved vanilla. Scrape into the prepared pan and set it aside uncovered, for 4-12 hours. Cut it in pieces and is ready to be served.
You can use some cocoa powder to roll the cut marshmallows or toast a half cup of coconut flakes and put it on the bottom of the pan.Cocoa solids are a mixture of many substances remaining after cocoa butter is extracted from cacao beans.This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened.
