i have had a serious sweet tooth lately. brett and i went to casper wy for a short business trip. we consequently ate out, every meal, for 3 days. try as you may to choose healthy options, when you aren't in control of making your own food, you consume a lot of random garbage. i am trying to clean my body up and get back on track. i can't even tell you how much food controls your mood, energy, complexion, brightness of your eyes, health of your teeth, hair, and even how you smell. when sugar cravings come, i instantly want a quick fix. if fruit doesn't do it for me... chocolate is always the answer ; ) its by far my favorite indulgence. this recipe is great because it is fast! so simple. requires little cleaning. oh, and did i mention? its dang freaking good. as always, its free of refined sugars. you can keep this soft (about the consistency of frosting) and use it as a fruit dip. you can also plop it into silicone muffin cups and freeze for a firmer fudge. i even use it as frosting from time to time. i'm all out of my good nut butter. i usually choose an organic peanut butter, fresh almond butter, or a cashew butter. today i did skippy. it was still good. not an organic choice, but just use what you have on hand. improving the ingredient quality as you go.
clean eating fudge:
1 cup coconut oil (consistency of shortening, not liquid, not solid)
1/2 cup nut butter
1 cup organic maple syrup
generous 1/2 cup raw cocoa powder (more if you're a dark chocolate fan)
pinch of sea salt
combine all ingredients in bowl. dip in fruit, or spoon into silicone muffin cups and freeze.
