As simple as it sound. But amazingly good!

Cut Sweet Potato into chunks. Steam (or boil, if you don’t have a steamer rack) until soft.
Mash with a fork. Add Coconut Oil, Flakes and Salt to taste.

Raw, (almost) Vegan and Paleo-friendly Chocolate Fudge

IMG_8559

I know! Too many hip words in this post’s subject. But this Amazing Chocolate Fudge is Raw, almost Vegan (if you eat honey), and Paleo-friendly (again if you eat honey). I swear to neither of these diets, but I for sure like to experiment with both raw and vegan food. The Paleo Diet kind of intimidates me, and since it includes so much animal protein, I feel that I couldn’t live by it. But that said, I have also read plenty about the Paleo Diet, and it does make a lot of sense – for some people – but as I said, not for me. It’s all about listen to your own body, and feel what is best for you. And who decides that you have to choose one kind of diet, and swear by it every day and every meal? I’m a flexitarian, eating what I believe that my body needs at the moment. Right now, it’s a lot of raw and vegan food, but if and when I wake up one morning and crave egg, fish or chicken, I’ll eat it (I haven’t eaten red meat since I was 15 years old and I honestly never crave that kind of food). Don’t be too rigid about what you’re eating and not. Listen to your sweet body, and be nice to it! It does everything it can to never fail you.

But anyhow, where were we? Chocolate Fudge! This one is so easy to make, and freaking healthy (if you don’t eat the whole thing in one sitting, as someone did…oops!).

Chocolate Fudge

1 cup Coconut Oil

1/4 cup Coconut Milk
(canned, and not light version!)

1/2 cup Raw Cacao Powder

1/4 cup Raw Honey

1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
(or even better, Vanilla Beans!)

Optional: Sea Salt

1. Whisk Coconut Oil and Coconut Milk together until glossy and thick (~ 5 min).

2. Add the rest of the ingredients, and mix until everything is smooth and fully combined.

3. Lay a sheet of parchment paper inside a bread pan, and pour the chocolate mixture into it.

4. Freeze for 20-30 min.

5. Cut in pieces. Enjoy!

If you get any leftovers; store it in an airtight container in the freezer.
