Chocolate beetroot fudge bites – an indulgent tower of raw-some goodness

The recipe for these blissfully creamy and delicious chocolate beetroot fudge bites was created purely by accident. It was a Saturday afternoon. I was heading to see That Sugar Film at 6pm. I wanted a sugar-free snack. I had a bunch of beetroot and intended to make Teresa Cutter’s (aka The Healthy Chef) Red Velvet Cupcakes (I’ve made them before – they are divine!) but had no eggs. Then I thought, chocolate beetroot brownies! Again, no eggs. So I looked in my pantry, grabbed what indulgent (and relatively healthy) ingredients I had, and went with the flow. The result? A wonderful tower of chocolate fudge heaven! It’s also raw, paleo and, of course, sugar free. Don’t let the purple colour from the beetroot fool you – this fudge is as chocolately as it gets!

Sugar-free granola and paleo trail mix

Raw, paleo, sugar-free mango and passionfruit cheesecake

It’s almost time to fly north for the winter – I wish! We’re heading into the middle of autumn (or fall) Down Under and I’m no fan of the impending cold weather. Give me the burning sun and searing heat of summer with flowy dresses and thongs over the wet days and overcast skies of winter with layers and hot water bottles any day! Thankfully there are still some mangoes floating around, so I’m hanging onto the taste of summer with this decadent dessert – raw, paleo and sugar-free mango and passionfruit cheesecake!
