Raw Superfood Fudge

 
Warning: this fudge disappears quickly!
(naturally sweetened with dates & stevia; gluten free, grain free, dairy free, egg free)

Here’s a chocolate treat that you can eat guilt-free, which will help to control those chocolate cravings without overloading your body with sugar. It is not only raw and naturally sweetened, but full of antioxidants, vitamin C, protein, fibre, magnesium, immune system boosters and other nutrients to nourish your body. The raw cacao is a great pick-me-up, and I often find myself reaching for it after lunch when I need an energy boost. I tell my kids this is one sweet treat they can eat as much as they like of, which makes them pretty happy! (Although it’s quite rich, so they never eat more than two or three pieces at a time.)

To maximise the goodness of this fudge, I’ve used two of Loving Earth’s superfood powders. Rainbow Superfood Blend is quickly becoming my favourite superfood powder, because instead of opening lots of packets and jars and combining powders, I can just grab this one jar and scoop out a spoonful of maqui berry, acai, AFA, gubinge (Kakadu plum) and camu camu powders. It just simplifies things. I also add some extra maqui berry powder as this is a ‘fruity’ fudge! It gives it an extra depth of flavour, plus even more goodness.(If you’re not sure what any of those are and why they’re so good for you, click on the links to see an explanation, as well as ideas of how to use them.)

I also like to add dried, organic cherries to my fudge, or a couple of handfuls of goji berries. If you don’t have any, you can either leave them out, or add some sultanas instead.

Ingredients
  1. 1 whole vanilla bean, snipped in a couple of pieces (no need to scrape out seeds)
  2. 100g raw cacao nibs
  3. 100g raw walnuts
  4. 100g raw cashews
  5. 100g raw dates
  6. 80g coconut butter (make your own from dried coconut)
  7. 60g coconut oil (sometimes called coconut butter)
  8. 1 heaped tsp Rainbow Superfood Blend
  9. 1 heaped tsp Maqui Berry Powder
  10. 10 drops vanilla stevia or a pinch of green stevia powder (optional)
  11. pinch of Himalayan salt
  12. a handful of dried sour cherries or goji berries
Instructions
  1. Grind up vanilla bean and cacao nibs in your Thermomix on speed 9 for 30 seconds
  2. Add walnuts and cashews, grind on speed 9 for 10 seconds
  3. Add raw dates, coconut butter, coconut oil, Rainbow Superfood Blend, Maqui Berry Powder, vanilla stevia or green stevia powder and Himalayan salt
  4. Mix in dried sour cherries or goji berries on speed 3 for a few seconds
  5. Press mixture into a square or small rectangular dish (I use a Pyrex glass dish), and pop into the fridge to set. If you like, you can make the mixture into balls instead of squares. Keep refrigerated or it will soften and crumble.
Notes
  1. nuts that are high in enzyme inhibitors (like walnuts) are easier to digest if they have been 'activated' - soaked, rinsed, then dehydrated. You can do this yourself, or you can buy them activated here. You can use regular raw nuts if that's all you have. Any combination of nuts will work - I like cashews & walnuts as they are oily, so they make a 'creamier' fudge.

(This is not a paid post, although Loving Earth did send me some samples and giveaways. But even if they hadn’t, I would still link to them because I LOVE their products!! I think I should maybe just move into their warehouse…)
