Guilt-Free Indulgence: Superfood Fudge

To all those that have asked (and those that adore chocolate), here is the recipe I make on a regular basis to delight that chocolate craving of mine. When I was in college, my grandma used to periodically send me shoeboxes full of homemade fudge, and although they were made w/ Fluff (do you remember that stuff?), butter, and eggs, I loved them. Unintentionally, I am taking over her reputable role as a talented fudge maker and plan to ship this yummy dessert to my young nieces (who are not fed any raw or superfoods), and my own little ones (none as of yet though) once in college to carry on the tradition!

I used to make a really nice vegan fudge, and now that I'm high raw, this raw recipe is my new favorite! It tastes a world better than any previous version I've ever tried (and when I give it to others, no one can believe it's raw!). I made the fudge for my first Superfood Tasting Party held at my place yesterday afternoon. It was a meeting of like-minded individuals that are making conscious decisions in their life to enhance their health and well-being. I made some amazing connections and am grateful I got over my hesitation (probably fear driven) and finally started this group!

Thanks to Lenette with Go Raw Have Fun for the superfood fudge recipe idea!

1/2 tsp Cordyceps
1 capful peppermint extract

Oh! For those that are interested in knowing how my ankle is doing, it is healing quite well! I was able to stand on it for hours yesterday without a break and it wasn't throbbing in the evening. Looking it at, you wouldn't even be able to tell it was swollen to twice its size just a few days ago!


  1. Thank you for the fantastic recipe. I wish I had more recipes I can experiment withacai berry juice because I happen to be a huge fan of acai berry juice

  2. Thanks very much, enjoy it! I don't use the acai berry juice on its' own, I use acai in a mix with other Superfood powders (common & exotic fruits from around the world) - from HealthForce Nutritionals.

    Looks like a nice site you have!
