So what’s the big deal about Gelatin? It seems like every time I turn around someone is screaming from the mountain tops about how it helps clear skin, reduce wrinkles, health tooth decay and gives you hair like Beyonce.

With 40 glaring down on me like the eye of Sauron, I knew I had to start adding it to my diet.  I bought myself a can of it and starting putting it  in my tea every day and amazingly enough, I did see an improvement in my skin.

 Seriously, I was in the middle of the dessert section of my book and eating sugar like a preteen and my skin cleared up.  Say What?  

Yes and when my friend Sylvie from Hollywood Homestead sent me a copy of her book  The Gelatin Secret  I read through it immediately to see what other important information I had been missing.

If you are someone who suffers from the any of the following:

  • Joint pain
  • Acne and wrinkles
  • Tooth decay
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia

Than you need to consider adding gelatin to your diet.  It’s so simple to do. Seriously, add it to a cup of coffee or dirty chai  in the morning and you are done for the day.

However, you need to make sure that you are buying the correct gelatin.  This is why the Gelatin Secret is your must have guide on how to navigate this superfood.

This book is jam packed with information and an absolute bargain at less than $25.  No more guessing or having to search google for an hour to learn the amazing benefits of gelatin.

What you’ll need for this Recipe:

How to Make This Paleo Marshmallow Recipe:

Line an 8 x 8 baking dish with parchment paper and grease with a small amount of coconut oil.

Sprinkle the cinnamon/arrowroot powder mix on the parchment paper and spread evenly.

Warm 1/2 cup of water on low heat and combine with the gelatin and mix well (I use an immersion blender for this)

Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of water in a small pot and combine with honey, vanilla, maple syrup and salt.

Once finished, immediately but SLOWLY combine the gelatin and honey mixture into a bowl with mixer on highest setting.

Mix on high until the color lightened and the mixture becomes light and fluffy and sticks to the beaters (this may take up to 10 minutes).

Pour mixture into prepared 8 x 8 baking dish and let cool in the fridge for 1 to 4 hours depending on how firm you want the marshmallows (less time = less firm

Notes:


 Please note these can not take any heat and will melt immediately!

Hello again, I see all recipes for this marshmallows say to boil the syrup to soft ball stage but your recipe doesn't call for that. I did it like yours and its in the fridge now but the taste is really honey/Maple not like a marshmallow

Hi Kelly,

Do you think it would be possible to make these without the starch & without electric beaters?

Hun, you probably can get away with no tapioca but you need to whip this fast for a least 10 minutes for it to come together.

Hi, Kelly!

I love your blog! These marshmallows are AWESOME! I just want to add one teensy thing... after you put the "other 1/2 cup" of water into the small pot with the honey, maple syrup, sea salt (and vanilla - the recipe forgot to say that), cook it to 240 degrees F over medium-low heat and remove it right when it hits 240. Then continue with the rest of the recipe. That's all! One little step, but it makes a BIG difference!

I just made these tonight to put in a Christmas gift bag with Paleo hot cocoa mix for my daughter's teacher. YUMMY!

Thanks for all you do!
