Recipe: Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Freezer Fudge

Want to hear some awesome news?

You can whisk together a batch of this gorgeous dairy-free fudge recipe in just 5 minutes! Even better, you can enjoy it guilt-free because it has no added sugars and plenty of healthy superfoods.

Tangy freeze-dried strawberries, creamy coconut oil, nutty almond butter, and rich cacao powder come together for a quadruple helping of tasty nutrients. Not that you’ll care after the first bite!

One note about sweeteners: you can take your pick here. I used JJ Virgin Sprinkles in mine, but you could easily use monk fruit extract (a.k.a. luo han guo) or stevia – just sweeten to suit your taste. If you’re like me and don’t have as much of a sweet tooth, you may opt for less sweetener.

This recipe also works well with freeze-dried raspberries, cherries, or blueberries, so take your pick! If you like extra crunch, try adding 2 tablespoons of chopped nuts or a tablespoon of finely chopped cacao nibs to your fudge.

I created this recipe with Valentine’s Day in mind, but it only took a few bites to realize it has great potential all year round! Don’t forget to snap a pic of your fudge and tag me when you share it on social…
