In ♥ Fudgelets part 2 ♥ I want to share with you some magic of the Mother Nature kind! Perfect treats for giving as Christmas gifts…
It is in the deepest dark earth that the most delicious things grow… When roots meet light, stems swirl into green abandonment and something special happens. In “What’s the fudge all about? Part 1 – I shared a delicious dark chocolate fudge recipe.
This time I’m delighted to be sharing its polar opposite, the silkiest white fudge that I’ve tasted and yes, it’s good for you! It contains two of my favourite ingredients – coconut oil and Lúcuma.
A cooks dream, it has a high smoke point and is far better for cooking with than olive oil, which becomes rancid and turns carcinogenic. It does contain saturated fat, though differs from the kind we know to loathe, the artery clogging kind, also known as LCT’s (long-chain triglycerides) Coconut oil contains MCT’S (medium-chain triglycerides) which are easily absorbed and digested, requiring much less energy and fewer enzymes to break them down for digestion, so they seldom get stored as body fat. Coconut goodness literally pours down like droplets of healing nectar – here is what it can do…
- Stimulate the metabolism
- Aid healing
- Prevents osteoporosis
- Prevents cancer
- Heals viruses
- Balances blood sugars
- Moisturises dry skin and hair
Pronounced (Loo-Ku-Mah) is a whole fruit powder and tastes like paradise of a Peruvian kind. It’s creamy texture gives grrrreatness to these gourmet Fudgelets. Lúcuma powder is delicious, butterscotch like, blending beautifully with ice creams, baby food, yogurt, biscuits, smoothies, raw treats and yumminess of all kinds.
The fruit grows from an evergreen and is also known as the “Gold of the Incas.” For some fudge gold, la la Lúcuma is the way forward!
- Rich source of antioxidants
- Promotes wound healing and tissue regeneration
- Helps keep bones and teeth strong
Lace your taste buds lovingly. These Fudgelets will do just that, I promise. I also promise you that if you take moments each day to cherish the now and empty the mind of niggly nothingness – ie; pointless worries and endless things to do, you will in turn tap into your higher resonance and true worth.
