3-Ingredient Dairy-free Raw Fudge

by | Aug 3, 2016

This fudge literally melts in your mouth, and is just about the healthiest you could make! Need I say more?

Okay, okay, I’ll say a bit more.

Growing up, fudge was always a once-a-year type of deal that I would get around Christmas. Not any more!! This fudge is totally healthy! It’s not very often you hear those two words in a sentence, but I’m saying it!

I love to feel good about what I’m putting in my body. I always try to think about what exactly is going into my body, and how it will affect my body, and sweets are not an exception. I believe that when you get the junk out of what you eat, you don’t have to worry about eating something like this once a year. Let’s face it, I have “dessert” everyday, usually twice a day…

One of my favorite things is making a typical unhealthy food super healthy, giving it to someone, and them being absolutely shocked that it’s not horrible for them! That’s what I love doing, and that’s what this fudge does. It’s so rich, chocolatey, creamy dreamy, melt-in-your-mouth, but guilt-free, and just plain awesome!

If that isn’t enough, I’ve topped some of mine here with black Himalayan sea salt and JEM Cinnamon Red Maca Sprouted Almond Butter, which you can buy here. (It’s literally the best nut butter I’ve ever tasted!) On the others, I topped with One Degree Organics Sprouted Oat Quinoa Cacao Granola to create a little contrast of texture.

This fudge is so easy! Like, you’ll be kickin’ yourself that you haven’t made it before. The key here is blending the ingredients together, which slightly whips the mixture super creamy and rich, but very light and almost airy fudge!

  • Coconut oil, cold-pressed
  • Date paste
  • Cacao powder, organic and raw preferrably
  • Water
  • Toppings of choice, optional
  1. Put softened or melted coconut oil in a blender. Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender.
  2. Add about equal amounts cocao powder, depending on how rich you like your chocolate flavor, and just a spoonful or so of date paste. Start with less than you think, as you can always add more.
  3. Add about 1/4 the amount of coconut oil used in water. The water is important in preventing the fudge from becoming too hard.
  4. Blend on high for just about 15 seconds or so.
  5. Taste. Is there enough cocao powder? Is it sweet enough? Add more cocao powder or date paste if needed and blend again.
  6. Pour into a container or pan lined with parchment paper. You want your fudge to be about an inch thick, so plan your container accordingly. Place in the freezer or fridge to set up and store in the either depending on how solid you want it.

  7. Add toppings if you'd like (it's totally amazing without, too!). Slice and enjoy!
