Raw Almond Butter Chocolate Fudge (single-serving)

Before I take off on a little vacation to visit my brother, I wanted to leave you all with an incredibly simple but satisfying single-serving raw fudge recipe that you can whip together in under 5 minutes. I know! It sounds too good to be true. But it's not. It's incredible.

I've been battling my out-of-control sweet tooth for awhile now as I've tried to clean up my diet and clear my skin. I see a massive difference in my emotional and physical health when I forgo sugar. But it's been extremely difficult to kick. That's where this recipe fits in perfectly. Raw desserts like this make me hopeful that I can overcome my addiction to sugar. If a dessert can taste this decadent without the intense cravings, guilt, stress, energy fluctuations, and everything else that comes with sugar, I'm all in. 

This recipe does call for pure maple syrup (grade B if possible), but I just used liquid stevia. However, if a little bit of sugar doesn't bother you, by all means include pure maple syrup or raw coconut nectar to amp up the flavor.


I first stumbled upon this recipe on Detoxinista's blog. After making a few small changes, and eating almost half of it before putting it in the refrigerator, I knew I had to share it on my blog, too!

The fudge mixture didn't even make it to the freezer to firm up like the typical fudge does... I just ate it straight from the bowl. That's precisely why I don't have an aesthetically pleasing picture of the fudge. You'll understand.

Raw Chocolate Almond Butter Fudge
Adapted recipe from Detoxinista

YIELD: 1 serving 

INGREDIENTS
• 1 Tbs raw almond butter
• 1 tsp unrefined coconut oil, melted
• 1 tsp raw cacao powder
• 1 tsp raw coconut nectar or pure maple syrup *See note
• 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
Liquid stevia, to taste (5 drops max.)
• A pinch of fine Celtic sea salt

Optional:
• Chocolate Chips (dairy, nut & soy free)

DIRECTIONS
1. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl.
2. Place the mixture on a plate with parchment paper. Put it in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before serving or enjoy straight out of the bowl right after mixing the ingredients together.

NOTES
• If you're looking for a sugar-free dessert, skip the raw coconut nectar/maple syrup and add more liquid stevia. You could also use raw honey if you'd like.

Be back next week! :-) Have a beautiful weekend.
