Beetroot Fudge

Beetroot Fudge

This beetroot fudge is delicious. Not only that but it is nutritious enough to eat for breakfast.

You can eat it either as a warm pudding (in which case it will not be set) or you can leave it to set in the fridge for a few hours (in which case it will be set). This keeps well in the fridge for a day or so and does not need to be frozen.

I also make this with carrot. Its pretty much the same recipe, but I use mesquite, that has a caramel toffee flavour, rather than the vanilla powder. You could also use ginger.

So to continue my trip down memory lane, this is my modified version of the chemical laden version, from my childhood. It is another quick, easy, and nutritious meal and often a favourite with kids. It also appeals to my mish mash meal love.

Here are just a few of the things that studies show that it does for you:

  • Increases diamine oxidase plasma levels.
  • Degrading glutamates and MSG.
  • Metabolises proteins.
  • Reduces oxalate levels
  • Inhibits the degranulation of mast-cells.
  • Moderates cortisol levels.
  • Regulates blood sugar levels and glucose tolerance.
  • Converts ALA to DHA.
