St. Patty’s day inspired green mint marshmallows {sugar-free}


Since St. Patty’s day is coming up here soon we thought about making some green marshmallows.

And how is it now March —> crazy!! 



And since we love mint…. we thought why not make these green marshmallows mint flavored.

We pretty much just followed our no-sugar stevia vanilla marshmallows for this recipe.


We just used liquid chlorophyll to make it green colored. You can try using powdered spirulina.


Loved how these turned out. Especially the green color. So pretty on the eyes.

Now if you do not have anything natural to make it green like the chlorophyll or spirulina, you can just leave them white.  Or for those they use food coloring, you can use green food coloring.




And for those that are having issues with making marshmallows it takes some getting used to.

We still don’t always get perfect looking marshmallows, especially no sugar ones as the sugar usually helps with final texture.

If you get separation in your marshmallows – we think it is either from the water not being hot enough or did not beat the marshmallows long enough.

Also, if your marshmallow batter starts to form before you hit 10 minutes, go ahead and stop beating and pour into pan.

Our marshmallows usually beat from 12-13 minutes. Again we start with a medium level speed for about 2 minutes then we increase to high for the remaining 9-10 minutes to create about 12 minute total beating time.

We hope this helps some of you with our marshmallow recipes.

If anyone else has some times to creating perfect marshmallows please leave a comment, so others  can see what you do :) thanks

  1. SO adorable! I love making marshmallows for playful gifts for people but still haven’t tackled the sugar-free version yet! It’s on the top of my list now! :)

  2. I sometimes blend chia seeds and ground flax in my smoothies and it makes a whipped marshmallow texture…perhaps something like that would work for a vegan version of your marshmallows?

    These marshmallows are so festive and look tasty too! I appreciate you working on a gelatin-free version. I’ll be looking forward to trying them :)

  4. These look great. I have some agar agar at home, so I may try it with that to see if it works.

    I found starting at very low speed then medium high and then high is essential! I increase gradually speed by speed rather than just jumping from medium high to high. Consistency turns out great! I also add in a little powdered marshmallow root for the “authentic” taste. It may contribute a little body. It is also very good for the digestive tract, as it is a demulcent…soothes. I love marshmallows and eat them multiple times a day!

    What kind of liquid chorophyll do you use?

  8. I love this idea! I made the plain sugar-free marshmallows and have been putting them on EVERYTHING! :)

  9. Squee! I will most definitely be trying this recipe! Marshmallows have always been one of my favorite candies, yet I’ve never attempted making them at home. Do you know if Whole Foods carries grass-fed gelatin? I’m going to the store tomorrow, and would love to try giving these a try this weekend! xoxo

  12. Clearly I NEED to make these for my nieces. Or, more accurately, my boyfriend’s nieces. They eat horrible food so I’ve made it my mission to introduce them to good “junk” food. :)

    There is an awesome book called Vegan Marshmallows Gone Wild by David Soleil. I’ve made them before & they turned out great! He uses soy protein powder and genutine vegetarian gelatin which is from carrageenan. Agar works too, but can be a little temperamental.

  15. I cannot wait to try these babies, I love marshmallows and miss eating them, this will make a wonderful Easter treat.. :)

    Looks great. Do you have alternatives to stevia or a liquid stevia you recommend? I find the taste quite strong and slightly unpalatable.
