Miranda says she likes balance in her life, so she eats 80% healthy and organic and 20% indulgent. I found this delicious Vital Chocolate Fudge Recipe on her chef's website and thought I would give it a try. It came out great so I'm sharing with all of you!
This recipe makes guilt-free fudge that's good for you too. It’s full of protein, healthy fats and antioxidants. If you use a chocolate protein powder with healthy greens like I did, it's super healthy for you too. And you'll never taste anything gross, only the sweet chocolate goodness that will leave you wanting more.
Get creative and have fun making your own signature treats. I used my healthy Spiru-tein Chocolate Protein powder in this recipe but you can use any healthy vanilla or chocolate other protein powder as part of the base for the fudge.
For this recipe I used Almond butter as a base but next time I'm trying Hazelnut spread or Coconut Cream. If using plain or vanilla protein powders add 2-3 tablespoons more cocoa powder and 2-3 tablespoons honey. Try to buy organic, non-gmo ingredients as much as possible.
Makes approx 2½ cups
Prep Time: 10 – 15 minutes (If rolling balls add 15 minutes)
1 cup organic macadamia nut, almond butter or coconut cream
½ cup raw organic cocoa powder (to taste)
½ cup healthy chocolate protein powder
½ cup organic pure, raw unfiltered honey (to taste)
2 tbsp melted organic virgin coconut oil
1 cup coarsely chopped organic chocolate
½ cup raisins or goji berries
½ cup finely chopped nuts
1 cup toasted finely ground desiccated (shredded) organic coconut (for topping)
½ cup coconut sugar (for topping or mix in the fudge)
1. Prepare a small baking pan with sides by lining with baking paper. You will not be baking the fudge this is just where you need to let it set.
2. In a medium size bowl mix all the ingredients together by hand until well combined. Then evenly spread onto the baking pan and smooth the top with a spatula.
3. Serve while still soft or refrigerate to set the fudge until ready to serve and cut into bite size pieces.
- You can sprinkle with finely ground toasted coconut and coconut sugar or cocoa powder or leave the fudge plain.
- You can roll bite size pieces of the mixture in your hands while still soft to make fudge balls and then roll them in cocoa powder. You can also add shredded coconut and or chopped nuts into the balls or roll them in it.
- If you want to make more to freeze later, just double the recipe ingredients.
