here’s something you may not know about me -i have a big sweet tooth. so when i found a fudge recipe that was not only good but good for you, i had to share it! readers, meet freezer fudge. the brainchild of holistic nutritionist and wellness expert, kelly leveque, this tasty treat is perfect for keeping the chocolate cravings at bay.
1 cup of coconut oil
1/4-1/2 cup of almond butter*
1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder (i use the former for its health benefits)
8-10 drops of liquid stevia (i used the vanilla flavor)
pink himalayan sea salt
melt coconut oil in a large bowl (i just pop it in the microwave for about 40 seconds). whisk in stevia, cacao powder, and almond butter. pour the batter into silicone ice cube trays (i got these from bed, bath & beyond -gotta use those 20% off coupons, right?!) and top with a sprinkling of sea salt. freeze for 20 minutes. once the batter solidifies, i usually keep it in the fridge so it’s soft enough to pop out of the trays to eat as dessert every night!
*i’ve used 1/4 cup for my past two batches and it’s definitely on the subtler side. i plan on upping the amount in my next rendition. it’s really just based on personal preference.
p.s. tonight a few girlfriends and i are going to see kelly at her book event here in encinitas. i’m fangirling out, guys. i can’t wait to meet her in person and finally get my hands on a copy of body love.3
