Vegan Marshmallows


1/2 cup Haden’s Aquafaba
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
2 tbsp vanilla
2/3 cup water
1 tbsp agar agar powder
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Dust the bottom of an 8”x8” pan with powdered sugar and set aside
  2. Put the aquafaba in a mixing bowl with the cream of tartar and mix on high for 6 minutes until very fluffy.
  3. Add some vanilla extract and whip for 3 more minutes until it is white again and it forms very stiff peaks. In a small saucepan, combine water and agar agar and bring to a boil.
  4. Boil the water and agar agar for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add sugar and boil for another 3 minutes stirring constantly over medium-low heat (be careful not to cook to hot or you will burn and caramelize the sugar).
  5. Turn off the heat and add the hot sugar mixture into the beaten aquafaba. Add this mixture slowly while beating aquafaba with a mixer set to low for about 30 seconds. This will turn the fluffy white mixture a little shiny. Quickly pour it into the pan that has been dusted with powdered sugar.
  6. Dust the top of the marshmallows with powdered sugar and let sit and cool at least an hour. Cut into 1” squares and dust all sides with powdered sugar.
  7. Turn your oven to 150* F. Once it reaches that temperature, turn it off and set your cubed marshmallows in the warm oven for about an hour to dry out a little.
