This month I’ve been sharing my journey of living with food allergies, specifically wheat and milk products. Living dairy-free has not been as difficult for me as living wheat-free because I had been slowly eliminating milk products in my diet over a period of years. It’s been difficult to find replacements for cheese, cream cheese, and cream. Even Cool Whip or similar substitutes for whipped cream contain some ingredients from milk.
I am happy to share my easy tasty solution for this problem.
Here are three simple ways to use marshmallows.
1. Add a creme insert for granola bars. I warm up (and soften) granola bars for 30 seconds in the microwave. Then split a marshmallow in half, set it on top of one of the bars, and zap it for 10 seconds. Watch the marshmallow and as soon as it begins to swell, take it out and make a sandwich.
Do you have other ways of using marshmallows? Another favorite snack is just spreading some peanut butter on a marshmallow. Obviously these tips don’t fall into the healthy category but marshmallows are usually $1 a bag or less, making them much cheaper than a candy bar or other desserts.
I’m so thankful for these small treats that remind me of childhood camping trips and roasting marshmallows around a campfire.
