Let me repeat that for you. Healthy fudge!!
You may be asking, what the fudge?! How does that work?
Before we get there, here's two more words. Condensed milk.
Sadly, that’s not a joke either.
That’s the junk that most traditional fudge recipes call for. It’s LOADED with sugar, then mixed with more sugar, and sprinkled with juuust a little more sugar.
Now, I’m not saying you shouldn’t indulge (DO IT!), but I am saying there are better ways to go about it. And while I haven’t had any old-school fudge lately (I actually didn’t even used to like chocolate *gasp*), I know what tastes good and these, my friend, are deeeelish.
There’s not a whole lot more I can say to convince you to make these. You either want delicious, guilt-free, easy, chocolatey fudge made from real ingredients with actual nutritional value…. or ya don’t. If you identify with the first group, I highly recommend you try this recipe. And share it with everyone you love.
What the Fudge
1 can organic black beans (or 1.5 cups cooked)
1 cup dates, soaked
¼ cup raw cacao powder
¼ cup nut butter or alternative (peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, sunbutter, etc.)
2 T coconut oil
2 T water or almond milk (or more if needed)
Process all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender until totally smooth. It will probably take several minutes to break up the beans and dates to smoothness. Spread into individual molds, or into a square dish lined with parchment paper and freeze. Once completely frozen, cut into squares and keep in freezer or fridge until ready to enjoy!
