This Super Quick Freezer Fudge recipe was created by my low tox mentor Alexx Stuart of Low Tox Life. This delicious and nutritious fudge can be ready to eat in 30 minutes.
This recipe is a sneak peek of just one of the recipes from our new collaboration ebook, “Low Tox Life Easy Read Recipes“. This ebook contains 20 of Alexx’s best-of quick and easy recipes. Of course, they are set out in my easy-read recipe format. Easy recipes in an easy format – it doesn’t get much easier than that! 🙂
Alexx is the person who started the Low Tox movement over a decade ago. I started my low tox journey with her incredibly informative Go Low Tox course. I was so impressed with Alexx’s knowledge of how to lead a more “low” tox life (rather than the impossible “no” tox life), that I became a Low Tox Coach through her Low Tox Method program.
Ingredient Shopping for the Super Quick Freezer Fudge
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is the best to use here as you want it to go solid when cooled in the freezer and stored in the fridge. MCT coconut oil will not solidify.
Check that the Nut or Seed Butter that you buy is made from 100% of the nut or seed of choice. Some have added refined salt, sugar and emulsifiers and these are best avoided if you want the most “real” food.
Cocoa Powder that has been alkalised is Dutch Cocoa Powder. The Dutch processed version is darker and has a less bitter taste. On the other end of the spectrum is Cacao Powder which is unroasted (raw and dried). It is the most bitter-tasting of the three but also contains the most antioxidants. Any of the three can be used in this recipe. It’s all up to your taste preference.
For the liquid sweetener, there is the choice of Maple Syrup, Rice Malt Syrup and Honey. I am partial to the taste of Raw Honey, however, Pure Maple Syrup is the best choice if you are on a Low FODMAP diet and Rice Malt Syrup is popular for those wanting to reduce their intake of fructose.
Vanilla Bean Powder is simply ground and dried vanilla beans. If it is difficult to find then simply use Pure Vanilla Extract instead. Imitation Vanilla Essence will leave a nasty aftertaste.
Chopped Nuts are the suggested add-in, however, add in your favourite nuts, seeds and/or dried fruits.
Preparation Hints for the Super Quick Freezer Fudge
When melting the coconut oil and nut or seed butter, I find it works best to stir the mixture as it is melting. Then I remove it from the heat and whisk in the cocoa or cacao powder, sweetener, and vanilla before stirring in my add-ins.
The amount of time it takes to freeze will depend on your freezer so you may have to be patient which is difficult when knowing how yummy this treat will be.
