This fudge was used to decorate our raw blueberry cheesecake at the shop. Cupuacu and blueberry are both high in antioxidant. how amazing is it that we can make something so decadent and still add powerhouse nutrients!
Cupuacu is from the cocoa family and has a high flavanoid content.
It’s primary health benefit is stimulating the immune system while simultaneously supporting the body’s ability to fight disease. Cupuacu has a caffeine-like effect, but does not contain caffeine. It is one of the few cocoa relatives that does not, yet it retains this energetic effect.
Another huge benefit of the fruit is its extremely rich array and concentration of antioxidants.

Cupuacu is often compared with famous acai as they are both high in ORAC value. Some say cupuacu is superior because it is less prone to oxidisation and easier to grow compared to acai berries.
one of the best things about cupuacu is the flavour. It has an exotic flavour that reminds me of passion fruits and melon.
