Sugar free green mint marshmallows for St. Patty’s Day.

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.

How to make green mint marshmallows with stevia

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 that use food coloring, you can use green food coloring.

Green mint marshmallows {sugar-free}

How to make low sugar green mint marshmallows. Gluten-free. No sugar marshmallow recipe. Paleo. Gut-friendly. A fun St.Patty’s day treat.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: depends on how big or small you cut marshmallow slices – we used a cupcake pan, got 12 marshmallows
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 cups water
  • 3/4 tsp liquid stevia
  • 3 tablespoons gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • drops of chlorophyll or some spirulina (chlorophyll works best)

Instructions

  1. Place the 3 tbsp gelatin into the bowl of a stand mixer along with 1/2 cup water.
  2. Mix together. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Have the whisk attachment standing by. **you could use a hand mixer for this as well. (we have not tried making this in a blender so unsure of how they would come out)
  4. Next step, using a small saucepan , heat up 1 cup water over medium high heat or heat up the 1 cup water in the microwave.
  5. Basically you are looking for just about boiling water.
  6. When you start seeing bubbles in the water.
  7. Once the water reaches just about boil temperature remove from the heat.
  8. Turn the mixer on low speed and, while running, slowly pour the hot water down the side of the bowl into the gelatin mixture.
  9. Once you have added all of the water, add in vanilla extract and peppermint extract and liquid stevia and increase the speed to medium-high.
  10. Beat at medium-high for 1-2 minutes than increase speed to high.
  11. Continue to whip until the mixture becomes slightly thick, approximately 8- 10 minutes.
  12. While the mixture is whipping prepare the pans as follows.
  13. We used a cupcake pan. You can use anything you like.
  14. Lightly grease your pan with some coconut oil (which is what we do).
  15. You could put down wax paper instead if you wanted.
  16. Once your marshmallow mixture is starting to look like it has some body to it (almost forming peaks), pour the mixture into the prepared pan, using a spatula for spreading.
  17. Allow the marshmallows to sit uncovered for at least 3-5 hours.
  18. Once marshmallows have set for a few hours you can start to cut into desired shapes using a sharp knife.
  19. Store in an airtight container. We store our sugar-free marshmallows in the refrigerator.

Notes

** for those that do not want to use gelatin – you can try agar agar – 3/4 tsp – 1 tsp – but we have not tried that yet. We are still trying to think of a way to make this without gelatin, once we figure it our we will share.

And for those that are having issues with making marshmallows it takes some getting used to. Click here to watch the video of us making marshmallows and answering common questions.

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

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! 🙂

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 🙂

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

yes, we never worked with agar agar before, so we are curious how it would do.

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!

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

I am not sure if Whole Foods carries it, as we have been ordering our gelatin online off Amazon.

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.

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

Reply
purelytwins March 12, 2013 - 5:42 pm

you can use maple syrup or honey.
