Okay I know the past 3 weeks I haven’t been posting as much and that was mostly due to vacation and then getting back on track post vacation…. But I think I’m pretty settled now and should be back on track finally! Today I make it up to you with healthy “fudge”!
Fudge… who doesn’t love fudge!? When I think of fudge…. I think of going to a special candy shop or bakery, getting a huge block and eating too much of it and feeling sick. Traditional fudge has a ton of sugar…. Very rarely do I want all that sugar- enter making fudge at home and adding in healthy ingredients. Plus it’s completely sugar free- naturally sweetened with dates! This homemade fudge is sugar free, is vegan, gluten free, and paleo friendly. The perfect nutrient dense summer dessert or even snack!
1 cup dates
1 cup cashews
2 TBSP cocoa powder
¼ cup chia seeds
¼ cup cacao nibs
1. Soak the dates for about 1 hour in warm water to soften them, and then pit them
2. Combine all ingredients in high speed blender or food processor and evenly combine
3. Spread in pan and freeze, cut into fudge sized pieces and store back in fridge or freezer (I keep mine in the freezer because it lasts longer and is super cold)
