It’s a wholesome chocolate treat, without all the added sugar.

Instead of white sugar or corn syrup, the healthy chocolate fudge is sweetened naturally with potassium-rich banana. (There’s also a banana-free version for those who aren’t a fan of the fruit.)

Chocolate Fudge Flavors

Mint Chocolate: Before blending, add 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract, or more to taste – go slowly because it’s strong.

Chocolate Peanut Butter: Replace 1/4 cup of the coconut butter with peanut butter. Stir in a handful of crushed peanuts or sprinkle them over top if desired.

Rocky Road: Stir some chopped almonds and vegan mini marshmallows into the fudge batter after blending.

Mocha Fudge: Add 1/2 tsp instant coffee with the other ingredients at the very beginning. You can also place a coffee bean in the center of each piece of fudge for presentation at the end.

Once chilled, cut into squares, bites, or bars, and enjoy.

You can refrigerate leftover fudge or freeze it for up to a month and thaw before serving.

    Is there any possible substitute for coconut butter?? I’m allergic to coconut. Peanut butter? Almond or cashew butter? Thanks:)

  2. Debbie says

    I love that this is refined-sugar-free. I put a heaping tablespoon into 16 mini cupcake wells and then put mini marshmallows in half and peanut butter in the other 8. It’s like pre-cut fudge with the ability to have many different flavors!
