Healthy Marshmallow Fluff

Healthy Marshmallow Fluff

Fluff!! Finally, a marshmallow fluff recipe that is HEALTHY! It’s really a delicious recipe that can be used for so many different things. Frost a sheet cake (not so much a layer cake as it will get a bit slopply), frost cookies, cupcakes, brownies, bars, pancakes…and of course the classic fluffernutter sandwich!

This recipe is in two steps. First we will make the Healthy Sugar Cane Syrup. The syrup is a fantastic recipe in it self…perfect to use in recipes that require simple syrup!

Then we will create the actual fluff. One thing to remember with this recipe is that it is all natural. Therefore, it has a much shorter shelf life than packaged fluff from your popular brands. So it’s best to use within about 3 days, as over time the fluff begins to change texture and become more like marshmallows. Refrigeration is optional since this recipe does not contain milk or eggs!

One product I did use was NuNaturals’ New Unflavored Gelatin (find it HERE) ! It works a lot better than other brands, so you actually do not need to use as much. Just 1 tbsp in this recipe was all that was needed. Any more than that would turn this into a marshmallow recipe…but here we want the smooth and creamy fluffy happiness of FLUFF!

I have created a VIDEO on YouTube showing how I make the recipe! Follow along to see the process!

So here’s the recipe! Enjoy!
