Superfood Fudge

healthy vegan fudgeWhen I think “decadent” the first word that comes to mind is a big slice of fudge.

Creamy. Chocolate-y. Rich. + Extra Sticky.

Anyone else love a good slice on occasion?

superfood fudgeSince I generally skip out on the dairy these days, it’s been a minute since fudge has entered my kitchen. So today I got creative and gave some totally dairy-free, refined sugar free, and completely raw fudge a try.

The result?… well you’ll have to try it for yourself. Let’s make some Superfood Fudge!

raw vegan fudgeThis raw vegan treat starts with the same ingredients most vegan treats start with: raw cashews, dates, and coconut oil. You just can’t go wrong. We take it to the next level though—turning those dates into a creamy nut butter, throwing in some rich cacao, and stepping up the flavors with goji berries.

Now all these “superfoods” might sound a little extra—and they totally are. But friends, a fun, healthy dessert is totally worth it. So hit up those bulk bins at Whole Foods and #treatyoself to a few slices of this fudge—your partner/roommate will also thank you.
