Mānuka Honey & Lavender Marshmallow Recipe

These magical homemade marshmallows are sure to become a family favourite. Creamy, fluffy and light as air, you’ll never want to buy store-bought again! These are perfect for sandwiching in a s’more, popping into a mug of hot chocolate or as a unique gift for a special friend.


  • 1½ Tbsp. gelatin powder
  • ¼ cup cold water + 2 Tbsp.
  • ½ cup MVH Mānuka Honey
  • 1 Tbsp. food-grade dried lavender
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. In a stand mixer bowl, combine the gelatin and ¼ cup of water and allow to bloom.
  2. Pour the honey, lavender, salt and 2 Tbsp. of water into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Keep at a rolling boil for two minutes then strain to remove the lavender.
  3. Turn your mixer onto low and slowly drizzle the honey mixture in. Slowly increase the speed to high to avoid splatter.
  4. Add the vanilla then continue to beat for 5-7 minutes, until the mixture turns white and a creamy marshmallow consistency. 
  5. Quickly pour into a small lined pan (or silicon mini loaf pans work well). The key is to do this at speed as it sets very fast.
  6. Allow to rest at room temperature for 4-6 hours. Slice with a greased knife.
