The health benefits of marshmallow and strawberry skewers

The health benefits of marshmallow and strawberry skewers

When it comes to satisfying your sweet tooth, indulging in desserts can be tempting. However, with this delicious Marshmallow Strawberry Kebabs recipe, you can enjoy a delicious treat while reaping some health benefits.

Strawberries: A Nutritional Powerhouse

The star of this recipe is undoubtedly the strawberries. These small red fruits are not only delicious, but also full of important vitamins and minerals.

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is vital for boosting your immune system and promoting collagen production for healthy skin. They also contain antioxidants that protect your body from free radicals, which can reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

In addition, strawberries are rich in fiber, which aids digestion and helps maintain a healthy weight. Their fiber content may also contribute to lower cholesterol and improved heart health.

Marshmallows: A Surprising Source of Benefits

While marshmallows are often considered a classic treat with fewer nutritional benefits, they offer some surprising benefits when consumed in moderation.

A notable benefit of marshmallows is their low fat content. This can be beneficial for people who are watching their fat intake or trying to maintain a healthy weight. Marshmallows also contain a small amount of protein, which is essential for building and repairing tissue in the body.

However, it is important to note that marshmallows should be enjoyed in moderation due to their high sugar content. Excessive sugar consumption can lead to weight gain, increased risk of diabetes and other health problems.

The caramel connection

In this marshmallow strawberry kebab recipe, Nestlé clove caramel adds a delicious and creamy touch. While caramel is typically considered a sweet treat, incorporating it into this dessert can complement strawberries’ natural sweetness without compromising their nutritional benefits.

However, as part of a balanced diet, it is important to use caramel sparingly because, as already mentioned, excessive sugar consumption can have negative health effects.

Optional toppings

If you want to add some extra crunch or texture to your marshmallow and strawberry kebabs, you can sprinkle toasted hazelnuts or crumbled cookies on top.

Roasted hazelnuts are a good source of healthy fats, vitamin E and antioxidants, which have positive effects on heart health and reduce inflammation in the body. On the other hand, crumbled cookies can add a touch of sweetness and texture, but should be consumed in moderation due to their high sugar and refined flour content.
