Fudge has one of the best textures in the world! It is soft and chewy and happy. Who doesn’t want some fudge in their life? The key is finding better options that have the best possible ingredients, digest well (ie no dairy!) and keep that creamy deliciousness. Don’t worry Beauty, it IS possible! (As are all things :) ).
My Matcha Chocolate Fudge Recipe is just perfect for all of these reasons.
Let’s see why I chose matcha as one of its star ingredients…
Beauty Adaptogen: Matcha
Yes, matcha powder is considered an adaptogen, which really means, it’s among one of the adaptogenic herbs with stress-fighting properties. And who of us can’t benefit by reducing our stress levels?!
There are so many things around us that cause or escalate our levels of stress, and explains why we sometimes gravitate towards sugary treats.
From meditation to pranayama breathing exercises (working with our breath is how we work with our life force, which is vital for our overall well-being), we are always looking for ways to combat the negativity and live a more happy and fulfilled life. Let’s not negate how we can do the same with the foods we eat.
Antioxidants protect us all around from wear and tear. A variety of fruits and vegetables are of course lauded for their antioxidant properties, however, matcha is unparalleled in comparison.
Matcha is actually packed with exponentially more antioxidants according to the latest innovation in antioxidant research. Just check out the results below:
The testing method known as ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity), found that matcha possesses twenty times more antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries. In fact, matchas ORAC rating is a 1573 units per gram, compared to pomegranates 105 units per gram or blueberries 93 units.
Here are some of matcha’s other stand out qualities:
- Matcha boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Help you concentrate and focus
- Safely cleanses and purges the body of harmful elements
- Is substantially richer in chlorophyll, making it a superior daily detox
As you can see, how could I not add this adaptogen into this heavenly beauty fudge. Mixed with coconut cream, maple syrup and dark vegan chocolate (among other ingredients) — this healthy dessert will have you stress-free in no time!
And be careful my Beauties — all of your senses just might explode! ????
