This is a healthier alternative to store-bought marshmallows. You could make it more fructose free by substituting the honey for rice malt syrup.

Ingredients (makes 30 marshmallows)

  • 3 tablespoons gelatine
  • 1 can coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 3 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • 3 drops of beetroot juice (or red food colouring)


  1. Dissolve the gelatine in 1/3 cup of cold water and let sit for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Heat the remaining ingredients (except for the beetroot juice or food colouring) in a small saucepan until almost boiling. Remove from heat and then puree smooth with a stick blender.
  3. Pour half of the mixture into a container and let set in the fridge for an hour. With the remainder of the mixture still in the pan, add the drops of beetroot juice or food colouring. Stir through and pour into a separate container and let set in the fridge for an hour.
  4. Once set, cut them into squares or chunks. Perfect for an afternoon snack.


Mix it up by using cookie cutters to cut out the marshmallows.

  • Interesting. I would love to see how they are with Hot Chocolate.


  • This recipe is a good find, look just like marshmallows, and so great they are sugar free.


  • We love marshmallows but I always feel guilty about the amount of sugar that’s used. I’m certainly going to give these a go. Maybe dust some of them with icing sugar as an alternative


  • Ooh, these look interesting. My first thought was soap! However, the ingredients make me think these could be yummy.


  • Your marshmallows look so good,thanks!


  • These look delicious!


  • Fantastic. A healthy version I love it. Thank you


  • Interesting, thank you for this version.


  • This is amazing! I will definitely try this


  • these look fantastc!


  • yum … I think I would like these too :)


  • These look great. They must not be as fluffy as a ‘normal’ marshmallow though.


  • Love the twist with the coconut! Thank you for a really unique recipe!


  • Awesome! I wonder how these would go roasted on the campfire. Thanks for sharing!

    • They won’t behave the same way as store bought marshmallows if you’re wanting to melt them on a stick!


  • great idea and coconut milk good for you, thought you could make mixture of colours and flavours to, like yellow with lemon essences, or blue with minty flavour too
