Recipe for Goan Colada Gourmet Marshmallows 

Pineapple Marshmallow Recipe

Come rain or shine, transport yourself to a sunny-Goa-state-of-mind with these squishy tropical delights. *Fresh pineapples contain active anti-gelling enzymes, ‘bromelain’, which break down the proteins in gelatin. To ensure setting your mallows into lovely fluffy treats make sure you boil fresh puree to de-activate the enzymes and let cool to ambient before blooming the gelatin. Alternatively, pop a can! Canned pineapples are already heat treated hence they are ready to get, set, GO! (FYI: the same enzyme is also found in Kiwi fruit).


  • 1 batch Marshmallow-basic
  • 120ml pineapple puree (canned or fresh*). Canned pineapples are already heat treated so will not need to be boiled, however fresh pineapple will
  • 1 mango Pureed
  • 1tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2tbsp dessicated Coconut



  1. Follow the basic marshmallow technique soaking the gelatin in the pineapple puree
  2. In a small saucepan, boil the mango puree and granulated sugar together till thick and syrupy. Let the mango coulis rest till it comes to room temperature
  3. Once the pineapple marshmallow is poured into the prepared setting pan, dot spoonfuls of mango coulis over the marshmallow block and drag the back of the spoon over the dots in swirly patterns
  4. Sprinkle the dessicated coconut over
  5. Let rest till set and cut into marshmallow cubes as per usual

But that’s exactly what some people are doing ON PURPOSE when their kidlet turns one.
