Homemade Fat Free Marshmallow


coolwhip121I thing that I don’t like about marshmallow is that it’s too sweet for me. That’s why I was very excited when I came across this low calorie homemade marshmallow recipe at Say Yes website.  I adopted to make it just the right sweet for me using fat-free whipped cream. Now you can enjoy fat-free marshmallows with your fat-free, sugar-free hot chocolate guilt free. Happy reading.

Ingredients:

  • 1 container of fat free whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Spoon
  • Wax paper
  • Tray
  • Mini cookie cutter (can use any shape you want; I use something like this)

Instructions:

  1. Pour the whipped cream into a mixing bowl and add the 1/2 cup of water. Adding the water is necessary so it freezes well enough to cut out pieces that hold their shape.
  2. Mix well with a spoon until the water is incorporated evenly into the whipped cream.
  3. Line tray with wax paper. Pour the mixture into the tray (you’d like it ideally about at least 1/2 inch thick or more) and freeze at least 4 hours.
  4. Lift wax paper out of sheet and place on a table.
  5. Cut out shapes with your cookie cutter and place layers of the mini marshmallows between sheets of wax paper in a freezable container.
  6. Store in the freezer and pull out individual marshmallows as needed for fancy hot chocolate!
