Brigadier is a 100% Brazilian sweet.
According to legend, it all started in the 1945 elections.
In exchange for donations to the campaign of then-presidential candidate Brigadier Eduardo Gomes, people would get samples of the candy.
From then on, the delicacy became known as the brigadeiro's favorite.
Made of condensed milk and chocolate, it might well be restricted to the chapter of curious stories.
But it's not fair to those looking to lose weight by giving up their flavor.
So, this year when the candy turns 70, I developed a recipe that uses the versatile green banana biomass.
National invention as brigadeiro, biomass is more than a cream formed with the fruit.
Everything about it is functional and helps you lose weight.
As the banana has not yet ripened, its starch has not yet been converted to fructose, which means its taste is neutral.
Because of the texture, which is like a puree, it is versatile and can be added to bread and cake doughs, juices and vitamins.
Resistant type starch is not absorbed by the body, so it passes right through the stomach.
This generates a byproduct, butyric acid, which helps regulate blood sugar.
And as it is also fiber, helps in the proper functioning of the entire digestive tract, lowering the glycemic index and bringing satiety.
And it's super light: It has about 95 calories in a 100 gram serving.
In health food stores, you can find the product ready, frozen or vacuum packed.
