Blue Spirulina Swirl Fudge

Velvety, smooth, bright and vibrant healthy fudge tha tlooks a picture of yum!
Seriously...this recipe makes it easy to create homemade candy with swirls of the blue spirulina superfood with no candy thermometer needed!
The base of the fudge is made with homemade condensed milk which makes it the perfect treat if you love coconut like I do.  I’m obsessed with coconuts, they are my favorite ingredient in desserts and healthy snacks.
The world is going coconuts. Following the popularity of coconut water, a broad spectrum of foods derived from the humble coconut is available. It now comes in a variety of forms from water to milk, cream, butter, sugar, oil, flour, fine or coarse shredded allowing for a variety of creative ways to add coconut to a healthy diet.
Coconut contains a unique type of medium chain saturated fat called lauric acid that research shows raises HDL or "good" cholesterol levels, which lowers overall heart disease risk.
As a plant food, coconuts also contain disease-fighting phytochemicals or antioxidants. Research suggests that coconut products helps boost metabolism which is helpful if excess body fat needs to be lost.
Just one scoop of coconut oil delivers a wide-range of healing properties. Produced in its most natural state, coconut oil will benefit you, your children and your pets. I put some into my dogs dinner regularly.
Whether you have chronic fatigue, weight problems, digestive or skin issues or just want to give your body a good cleanse and boost your energy, coconut in any of its forms is so good for you.
Hence this healthy fudge is both low-carb and packed with healthy fats and antioxidants. Eating more healthy fats is a great way to help satisfying your sweet cravings without the sugar.
Not only is this fudge insanely delicious and easy to prepare, it also comes with some surprising health benefits due to its coconut base. From vitamins and minerals to plenty of healthy fats that support hormone health and neurotransmitter production, these little delights are the perfect addition to any healthy eating plan.
This fudge candy is super rich, uber-decadent - but secretly healthy and guilt-free!  Yup, that means no butter, no white sugar and no sweetened condensed milk…  just pure, fudgy, nutty, chocolatey goodness.
The big secret here is that you will be using homemade condensed milk in this recipe, free of the LOADS of sugar in store bought stuff.
The facts are… manufacturers take out about 60% of the water from the milk to “condense” it down. After they “condense” the milk, they add about 40% sugar to fill the void from the water.
I’m sure you’re asking yourself why the manufacturers do this. Well, the added sugar means the shelf life is longer, plus transporting the milk is easier due to not having to store it in cooler temperatures.
Its always about the convenience to them, rather than people’s health.
But when you take the time and effort to make your own condensed milk, especially if its from coconut cream to make this delightful fudge candy, you get all the real, natural flavors - no artificial food flavorings here!  Each little cube is like a piece of heaven.
This blue spirulina fudge is super soft, yet holds its shape long enough for you to pop them in your mouth…  where they then melt in your mouth.
The recipe for the sugar free homemade condensed milk is below in notes. It really very easy to do and you can keep some in your fridge so its ready to add a dollop on EVERYTHING for a super healthy treat.
Now lets look more at the blue colour.
Blue Spirulina powder has been added to give a pretty vibrant blue effect.
Blue Spirulina, a well-known antioxidant superfood, is the magic ingredient that makes any food look Instagramable (#trendy). This intense deep blue pigment is known as phycocyanin and is extracted from spirulina (blue-green algae).
It is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, iron, carotenoids and antioxidants and helps protect cells from damage. It is freeze dried to preserve its natural colour and nutrients.
You can get creative and add this beautiful nature product to literally anything for a heavenly nutritional boost and some epic blue instaworthy pictures!
You can add it to water, juices, smoothies, breakfast food, baked food, sweets, yoghurts, cereals or any other foods. For light blue shades, use just a pinch and for a more brilliant blue, use up to a full teaspoon or more.
Its known to have high nutritional value and boost the immune system, increase metabolism and improve digestion! Contains an abundance of B vitamins which can enhance energy levels.
Who knew algae could be so wonderful?
This stunning looking, healthy fudge is creamy and decadent bursting with flavor and full of healthy fats. It sure is a good way of incorporating more good stuff into your diet…in the form of healthy superfood candy.
