Easy Healthy Fudge Recipe – 5 Ingredient 5 Minute Recipe

Healthy fudge that’s loaded with antioxidants, good healthy fats and that’s low on the glycemic index?  Not to mention, it clocks in at just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep.  Count me in!

This is such a seemingly decadent sweet treat when I can’t ignore my craving for chocolate.  Not only is it fairly instant in its gratification, it’s pretty guilt-free and when enjoyed in fair doses, is actually good for you.  I tried downing a spoonful of coconut oil in the morning for awhile but it just didn’t agree with me.  It felt strange to do it and always felt stranger going down.  I’m happy to report that I found an easier and much more pleasurable way to regularly incorporate it into my diet, aside from stir fry’s and such.

The notion of chocolate that’s really good for you paired with the fact that it takes no more than 5 minutes to whip up both seem counterintuitive in nature but it’s the real deal.  When combining a few high quality ingredients, what you produce is a simple treat with 5 ingredients {and that’s if you’re counting the salt}!  They’re also vegan, paleo and refined sugar free.  I highly recommend using cold processed coconut oil for this {virgin and unrefined} since you’re taking it straight away without applying heat to it.  This helps preserve the integrity of the oil and its benefits.  The same thing goes for the cacao, the less processed sister of cocoa.  One little bag lasts me a lifetime {I only slightly exaggerate} and it goes into everything from face masks to puddings.  My girlfriend even uses it as a natural makeup bronzer that she mixes with cinnamon.  As for the sweetener, I would stick to a natural, liquid form.  You can use anything from agave to manuka honey to maple syrup.  A pinch of pink salt adds balance while pure vanilla rounds out the flavors while adding another dimension of floral sweetness.

As promised, here are my flavor variations.  For a peanut butter flavor, add in 1/4 c of peanut butter {or any other nut butter}.  For green tea, omit the cacao and add in the same amount of matcha powder.  For chocolate dipped strawberry, crush in a handful of freeze dried strawberries.  For mint chocolate, add in 1/8 ts of pure peppermint extract or even better, add in 1-2 drops of pure peppermint essential oil.  You could also stud these with nuts, goji berries, drizzle with salted date caramel….really, the options are endless.
