Guilt Free Fudge

BusyButHealthy's picture
Ok, so you’ve probably just seen the holiday fudge recipe. While it is SO YUMMY, its still a bit higher in calories and sugar. But this recipe is a guilt free protein fudge so you can feel better about having it on a very regular basis! Its made with protein powder so you’re also getting some protein with it, and its low carb too! LOOK HOW YUMMY IT LOOKS! Warning–it melts fast so you’ll have to eat it quick (which shouldn’t be a problem!) I adapted this recipe from Alyson’s at Nourished Fitness ….a great idea indeed!
  Whey gourmet peanut butter chocolate protein powder/Their dreamy chocolate would be awesome too 1 Tablespoon
  Unsweetened cocoa powder 1 Teaspoon
  Coconut oil/0.5 tablespoon natural peanut butter for a pb fudge 1⁄2 Tablespoon (For A Light Tasting Coconut Fudge)
  Chopped walnuts 2 Teaspoon
  Unsweetened vanilla almond breeze/Low fat milk 2 Tablespoon

In a small bowl, mix together the protein powder, cocoa powder, melted coconut oil or pb (melt in microwave). Stir until blended. Add in almond milk and stir until combined. Add in chopped walnuts. Freeze until set (about 30 minutes). Will be hard once it comes out of the freezer, but it thaws quickly. Enjoy!
