It’s a wholesome chocolate treat, without all the added sugar.

Instead of white sugar or corn syrup, the healthy chocolate fudge is sweetened naturally with potassium-rich banana. (There’s also a banana-free version for those who aren’t a fan of the fruit.)

Chocolate Fudge Flavors

Mint Chocolate: Before blending, add 1/4 tsp pure peppermint extract, or more to taste – go slowly because it’s strong.

Chocolate Peanut Butter: Replace 1/4 cup of the coconut butter with peanut butter. Stir in a handful of crushed peanuts or sprinkle them over top if desired.

Rocky Road: Stir some chopped almonds and vegan mini marshmallows into the fudge batter after blending.

Mocha Fudge: Add 1/2 tsp instant coffee with the other ingredients at the very beginning. You can also place a coffee bean in the center of each piece of fudge for presentation at the end.
