A dessert that’s full of fibre.

by Ashleigh Feltham, Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Nutritionist

Our Chocolate Cauliflower Pudding with Banana Custard is a dessert that is full of gut-loving fibre.

 

Cauliflower is a great source of vitamin K which is needed for your blood to clot normally and to create strong bones as well as vitamin C which promotes optimal immune system function. It’s also a good source of choline which is needed for normal central nervous system function. Cauliflower contains the antioxidant sulforaphane which has cancer-inhibiting properties.

Did you know that more than 50% of Australian children and more than 70% of Australian adults are not getting enough fibre?.

Fibre is essential for the health of your gut as well as provides other health benefits. These include a sustained energy release by slowing the release of sugar into your blood. This also helps to maintain a healthy weight as you are not hungry immediately following your meal or snack.

Each pouch of South Australian Gourmet Food Company Apple Fruit Custard with Added Fibre gives your body 10.9g of dietary fibre. Fibre is important for your gut to function well and helps to maintain a healthy weight. Fibre keeps you feeling fuller for longer and assists in creating a slower release of sugar into your blood. This creates a sustained energy release.

High fibre diets have also been linked to healthier blood pressure levels. Each pouch of South Australian Gourmet Food Company Banana Fruit Custard with Added Fibre will give your body 10.9g of dietary fibre. Adults need between 25-30g each day, so these pouches make this a lot more achievable.

Cocoa powder adds more antioxidants to the meal. Cocoa can also help your cholesterol levels to be healthier. It does this by preventing the ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol from oxidising which is the chemical process that makes this type of cholesterol most harmful for your body. Oxidised LDL can lead to atherosclerosis when it is taken up onto the walls of your arteries causing plaques.

Cream cheese is a good source of calcium which is a mineral vital for strong bones and teeth. Calcium is also needed to maintain normal muscle contractions. Cream cheese gives your body protein which helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer and is needed to create and maintain all the cells in your body. This recipe may seem too good to be true, but it really is this good for your health.
