Homemade Strawberry Marshmallows
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour or corn starch
- 2 tbsp unflavored gelatin
- 5 tbsp water
- 1 cup agave or maple syrup or honey for paleo
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp freeze dried strawberries, powdered measured in powdered form
- 1/8 tsp salt
- Prepare a 8X10 or 9×12 inch baking sheet with non-stick spray and parchment paper for easy removal. Be sure the parchment coveres all sides (so it’s just slightly bigger than the sheet). Dust the parchment paper with tapioca starch and be super generous!
- In the bowl of a stand alone mixer with a whisk attachment OR in a large glass mixing bowl if you using a handheld mixer, stir together the gelatin and water. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the agave into a sauce pan and turn on high heat. Stir until the agave is at a rapid boil. Remove from heat and pour the hot agave into the bowl with the gelatin mixture. Beat on high until fluffy and glossy. The mixture should form stiff peaks. Add in the vanilla and salt and mix until combined. Add in the freeze dried strawberry powder and mix until blended.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking sheet, spread using a rubber spatula and let sit at room temperature for 8+ hours. I let mine sit overnight.Once they have set up overnight, dust with tapioca flour and turn it out on a tapioca starch dusted surface. Dip a knife in tapioca flour before cutting into squares. Store in an airtight contiainer at room temeprature.
