Tiny titans of flavor, no one would guess these candies are scrupulously healthy. Underneath their neon pink dusting lies some of Mother N’s finest superfoods: beetroot, seaweed, and raw almonds.
That bold pigment that give beets their Harry Potter glimmer is where the magic lies. Deep red–colored foods like beetroot and onions store powerful chemicals called betacyanins. These compounds love your liver and are believed to support the body’s detoxification process. This might be why beets have charmed every detox clinic from North America to the West of Ireland.
You don’t need to stick to beetroot powder for the recipe to work–try a Peruvian powdered fruit called lúcuma. Apparently lúcuma is the maple syrup of South America. A mere whiff of this ambrosial substance has the ability to drive the feminine persuasion wild. Move over, Justin Bieber, there’s a new fixation on the block.
