Sugar Free Marshmallow Cream

Delicious White Fluffy Round Marshmallows ready to eat

Who doesn’t love marshmallows? They are great for any season from your cup of hot cocoa to around the campfire in the summer. I used to actually be obsessed with these chocolate flavored marshmallows that I could buy in the store at one point before I knew I was diabetic. This type of marshmallow is not the kind you would see in a bag in the grocery store, but is rather like a stickier version of a meringue. It is good for recipes and for mixing in your favorite hot drinks.

The best part is, it’s sugar free so it is good for those who are watching their sugar and carb intake like myself. Although I don’t like to eat too much sweet stuff, every once in a while, I can’t resist. You can find marshmallow flavoring in the cake aisle or sometimes near the spices or you can order it online for much cheaper 🙂


Sugar-Free Marshmallow Cream


Sugar Free Marshmallow Cream
Recipe type: Dessert
  • 3 Envelopes Unflavored Gelatin
  • 5 Tablespoons Splenda Sugar Substitute
  • 3 Egg Whites
  • ½ Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ Cup Cold Water
  • ¾ Cup Boiling Water
  • ½ Teaspoon Marshmallow Flavoring (found on spice aisle)
  1. Mix gelatin and cold water together in small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes
  2. Bring ¾ cup water to boil in saucepan on stove. Add in gelatin and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes stirring until all gelatin is dissolved
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool (in refrigerator) until as thick as average pancake syrup.
  4. Stir in Splenda, Vanilla and Marshmallow Flavoring
  5. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  6. Slowly add gelatin mixture into egg whites beating continuously until completely mixed and mixture is light and fluffy. Do not beat until they are dry as these will not melt down as easily as store bought marshmallows will.

  1. My kids love to put marshmallow cream on peanut butter sandwiches. This seems pretty simple to make, but I am going to have to track down the marshmallow flavoring.

    1. I tracked some down for you and linked to it in the post now. Let me know how yours turns out!

  2. How do you keep the marshmallow creme from turning to jello? It did not stay creamy after sitting awhile.

    1. The recipe creator, Katie, says she thinks it is possible it was whipped wrong; either not enough or too long. She says she has never had that happen so she is unsure what to tell you. Sorry about that!

  3. You are awesome beyond words for posting this. Both myself and my dad are diabetic. We have been hankering for some good old fashioned rice crispy squares for a while now. This is just what we needed. Thanks again for posting this

  4. My only concern is I would be consuming raw eggs, or did I miss a part in the instructions.

    1. Hi Bernadette, this recipe is not meant for eating as is but rather for adding to hot drinks or recipes that call for marshmallows.

  5. How much does the recipe yield? I am looking to substitute for 6 cups of mini marshmallows.

    1. Judi, I am not the author of this recipe, but I can ask and get back to you.
