Homemade Cacao Marshmallows - Gut and Hormone Healthy

Homemade Cacao Marshmallows - Gut and Hormone Healthy

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp marshmallow root powder 
  • 1 cup organic pure maple syrup - honey works too! Just know that heating honey damages the beneficial enzymes. 
  • 1 cup filtered or spring water
  • ¼ cup grass-fed + finished gelatin powder
  • Fresh vanilla or 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • Dash of cinnamon (optional!)

Directions:

  1. First, combine your cup of filtered or spring water and marshmallow root powder in a pot. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Let sit and cool for 10 minutes. 
  2. Strain the marshmallow tea. Put 1/2 cup of the tea in a blender and the other 1/2 cup back in the pot. 
  3. In the pot, add and combine the maple syrup, vanilla, cacao, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil and stir constantly, for 5 minutes. 
  4. In the blender, add in the gelatin to the marshmallow tea and blend on high for 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer your honey mixture to the blender. Blend all together for 10-15 minutes, or until you see the mixture has become very thick and gel-like. 
  6. Transfer this to one of the following: a coconut oil lined glass pan or tupperware, a parchment paper lined glass pan or tupperware, or into a silicone mold. 
  7. Let this sit on your counter overnight. 
  8. In the morning, you will be able to slice your marshmallows into cubes and enjoy!
  9. Store in an air-tight container, preferably glass, on your counter top. They will stay good for about 3 weeks!
