Healthier S'mores

Last night my daughter had a sleepover so I was begged to let junk food make an appearance. We made the healthiest version of s'mores that I could come up with- no campfire needed.

Suzanne's Ricemellow Creme is delicious...and I am not just saying that. It tastes so close to the real thing that if I could take it camping and put it on a stick and roast it in the campfire, I would. Real marshmallows (wait can I even call them "real" considering the ingredients) are basically just filled with sugar and artificial flavors and coloring. Somehow one ingredient is Blue #1, even though they are white. Beats me! Suzanne's Ricemellow Creme on the other hand is as natural as it gets. It is even gluten-free, vegan, and non-dairy if you follow those guidelines. Suzanne promises on her container that her product has: No gluten, no animal products, no GMO's, no fat, no cholesterol, no refined sugars, no corn sweateners, no cane sweeteners, no added salt, no preservatives, and no artificial additives. Suzanne's own Brown Rice Syrup is the only sweetener.

Now before you say I am depriving my kids of the joy of s'mores, you have to taste this stuff. Plus I will admit, they have indulged in s'mores while camping. For this slumber party treat, we got some graham crackers and chocolate (both organic of course) and sandwiched them with the ricemellow creme and it was dessert time. We have also substituted the chocolate for chocolate ice cream and popped them in the freezer before. This is a great summer variation. Ricemellow creme can also be used for rice crispy treats, as a topping for hot chocolate, or with peanut butter in a sandwich.

Try it for yourself: Suzanne's Ricemellow Creme, Marshallow Cream Non-Dairy Substitute, Delicious! 10 oz.

UPDATE: I recently found a recipe to make real honest to goodness healthy marshmallows...ones I can actually take to a campfire. I had no idea that marshmallows were originally medicinal, they resemble nothing like we see today. Best part is they seem easy to make. Check out the recipe from An Organic Wife here: Real Deal Marshmallows.
