🌱 Are Marshmallows Vegan?
Most marshmallows are not vegan because they contain gelatin. Thanks to companies like Dandies, who make vegan marshmallows, vegans can enjoy them too.
Where Can I Find Vegan Marshmallows?
Whole Foods carries Dandies vegan marshmallows. They can be also be found at many natural grocery stores and on Amazon.
I read that Trader Joe's has vegan marshmallows, but that they are a seasonal item. I've never tried them myself.
What Graham Crackers Are Vegan and Gluten Free?
Both are delicious. They can be found at natural grocery stores and on Amazon. I buy both brands at my local Sprout's.
- Full-fat coconut milk: Makes a great ice cream base. It's rich and creamy.
- Sweetened condensed coconut milk: Adds more creaminess and a wonderful sweet rich flavor.
- Vanilla extract: Because of course! It adds a nuanced floral note that's difficult to describe.
- Toasted vegan marshmallows: The key word here is toasted. It isn't s'mores ice cream without the toasted marshmallows!
- Dark chocolate baking chunks: For a deep rich chocolaty flavor. You could also use chocolate chips.
- Vegan Gluten-free graham crackers: To add some crunch. I used gluten-free because I am gluten intolerant. You could use whatever your favorite is.
