Vegan marshmallows are a difficult find––let alone vegan marshmallow fluff. That’s where this recipe comes in. Marshmallow root can be found at most spice shops, specialty grocery stores, and online. Marshmallow root tea should also do the trick in this recipe if you have trouble finding the actual root. This vegan marshmallow fluff is so amazing - put it on top of lemon "meringue" pies or a piece of toast! So delicious!

Homemade Marshmallow Fluff [Vegan]

Save Trees. Print Less. But if you must, we charge $2.99 to encourage less waste




  • 1 tablespoon marshmallow root
  • Aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas)
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla-infused bourbon


  1. In a small saucepan, bring your chickpea liquid and marshmallow root to a boil. When it boils, lower the heat slightly and allow it to simmer/reduce for 10 solid minutes. You want it to reduce to about 1/3 cup.
  2. Strain the marshmallow root out of the liquid.
  3. Return the liquid to the saucepan and add the maple syrup and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Bring this mixture to a boil and, once it's there, lower the heat to a simmer. Continue to cook the mixture for 8 minutes.
  4. Once it's ready, pour the cooked liquid into the stand mixer bowl. Whisk the mixture on high for 10 solid minutes. Before your eyes, you will see the mixture turn white and whip into a light, fluffy cloud of goodness. Add the remaining teaspoon of vanilla bourbon while it's mixing.

  1. It looks so amazing, but wondering if I can use a blender, or a nutri bullet or even a food processor since I have no mixer? I possibly have an attachment for the food processor but not sure if it\’s strong enough for this?

  2. "Marshmallow fluff is so amazing!"

    Yeah, but how does it TASTE???? I\’ve attempted marshmallows using marshmallow root several times over the past few years and have been disappointed every time. Perhaps it was my recipe, however the taste was unpleasant and completely unlike what we have come to know with "marshmallows". I am all for natural as much as possible, but if it is bitter and tastes as if sweetener was used to mask the actual taste of the plant/herb, then I\’ll pass.
