Homemade Marshmallows

In all honestly I have always disliked marshmallows - growing up it was the regular corn syrup laden artificial favored kind - it wasn't until I tried from scratch marshmallows - now they can be messy and sticky - but so worth it. Perfect for kids and adults. I love to drop one into my hot drinking chocolate - paired with come cheese and berries - a snack any kid would love.


2 tbsp gelatin ( I recommend Great Lakes Bovine Gelatin)

1 cup cold water, divided in half

2 cups sugar

1/8 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla extract

Arrowroot powder

1-2 tbsp Coconut oil


In stand mixer, combine gelatin with 1/2 cup of water, set aside to bloom.

Stir together remaining water, sugar, cream of tartar, vanilla and salt. Heat over medium heat, stirring until sugar is fully dissolved.

Clip candy thermometer to pan and heat until temperature reaches 240 degrees.

Remove from heat immediately.

Turn mixer on low, and slowly pour hot syrup down the side of the bowl into the gelatin mixture while running.

Once you’ve added all the syrup, turn mixer to high speed, and whip until mixture is thick and lukewarm temp.– approximately 7 minutes.

While mixture is whipping, grease a 9×9 inch pan with coconut oil and dust with arrowroot.

When marshmallow mixture become thick, fluffy, and lukewarm, dump it into the prepared pan, and smooth the top with a rubber spatula. (Veryyyyy sticky)

Dust top well with arrowroot

When marshmallows are cool, dump them out of the pan, and use scissors cut to desired size.

Dust all sides with arrowroot

“My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit Who lives within me,

Whom I have received from God. ”


Part of honouring God’s will is taking care of ourselves. If we are not well, how can we do the things that He needs us to do? Our bodies are wondrous “temples,” created by Him to sustain us through our Earthly lives. How are you treating your temple? Keeping our bodies nourished is incredibly important for maintaining good health.

Bodies that are well-nourished spiritually and physically are better equipped vehicles for doing God’s work.

A mindfully curated space grounded in scripture, the seasons and slow ancestral traditions

Living simply is not something you arrive at or something accomplish. It is something of a balance that is nurtured and nourished throughout our entire lives.
