My attempt on healthy vegan and paleo fudge.It was so easy to make and is my family’s favourite. I tried it this summer in Idaho and fell in love with it and had to make it. It was super easy to make. Why ruin your day with all the process and unneccessary sugar in real fudge when this is so much better. Trust me and give it a go! For only 117 calories a serving and less then 20g carbs its a perfect treat for when the sweet tooth is craving.
Yields: 16 servings (1 fudge square each)
Prep Time: About 30 minutes
Cook Time: No cooking (promise!) Just freeze
1 cup pitted dates
1/2 cup almonds, unsalted
1/4 cup walnuts, unsalted
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 ripe bananas
4 Tablespoons natural almond butter
1/4 cup more unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla
4 tbsp honey (You can also use Blue Agave)
1.Put dates in a bowl with warm water, allow dates to soak for 30 minutes, then drain.
2. Mix together dates, almonds, walnuts, vanilla, and 1/4 cup cocoa powder in a food processor until well blended. Spread mixture in a 9×5 baking pan (or an 8×8 is okay) until evenly distributed, and press down gently with a spoon.
3. Mix together bananas, almond butter, honey, and other 1/4 cup cocoa powder in the food processor until well blended. Spread mixture over bottom layer until evenly distributed.
4. Place in freezer for 30 minutes. Cut into 16 squares. Re-freeze whatever you don’t eat, and enjoy at another time!
I prefer to regard a dessert as I would imagine the perfect woman: subtle, a little bittersweet, not blowsy and extrovert. Delicately made up, not highly rouged. Holding back, not exposing everything and, of course, with a flavor that lasts. ~Graham Kerr
