Rich, chocolatey, homemade sugar free chocolate fudge.
Hearing the words “sugar free” normally makes me think of cloyingly sweet, sucralose-laden desserts or beverages.
Chemical sugars and I do not get along. As a little kid, I put Sweet-n-Low in my iced tea because my mom said it dissolved better than sugar. However, after a few months of awful stomachaches, we determined Sweet-n-Low didn’t like me very much.
The feeling is mutual. To me, foods with fake sugars tend to taste… well, fake. But this sugar free chocolate fudge has no fake sugar. It only has natural ingredients, which is perhaps why it tastes so completely delicious!
You’ll find no Darth Vaders lurking here in this rich, decadent, melt-in-your-mouth sugar free chocolate fudge.
No, in my little world of chocolate, everything is turned upside down, and dark equals light. The recipe has two options – both options are free of refined sugar, and use the stevia option if you want it to be 100% free of added sugar as well. If you’re used to healthy desserts, some readers even say that the banana is sweetener enough – so it’s up to you!
Sugar Free Chocolate Fudge
Sugar Free Chocolate FudgePrint This Recipe
- 1/2 cup coconut butter (120g)
- 1 overripe banana (or 2/3 cup additional coconut butter) (160g)
- scant 1/8 tsp salt
- pinch uncut stevia OR 2 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
- 1/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder (40g)
- optional 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- optional 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Make sure your coconut butter is melted before starting. Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Then smooth the fudge into a container or candy molds. Plastic containers work well, because you can pop the fudge right out. Place in the fridge for a few hours, or freeze for a few minutes. You can freeze it for longer periods of time; just be sure to thaw at least 15-20 minutes prior to eating.
