I personally love avocado fudge; it is only for avocado lovers, though.
Why avocado fudge?
I had a friend who told me once when I was expecting my first child that the baby would look like an avocado if I kept on eating so much of it. I love them.
They are loaded with health benefits:
They are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B6. Eating healthy fats supports skin health, enhances the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, and may even help boost the immune system.
All that, plus they taste amazing!
If you ever need a boost, then try this recipe. You can add your own topping and maybe even drizzle melted chocolate chips over the fudge before freezing.
You will need a freezer-safe 8×8-inch (20×20-cm) dish, lined with parchment paper.
Serving size: 7
2 medium avocados, cubed
1 ripe banana
¼ cup local honey (85 g)
⅔ cup coconut oil, melted (130 g)
1 squeeze fresh lemon juice
1 pinch salt
2 Tbsp mixed sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds for the topping
2 Tbsp goji berries for the topping
In a blender or food processor, combine avocado, banana, honey, coconut oil, lemon juice, and salt.
Blend and scrape down the sides of the blender.
Pour the mixture into a parchment-lined 8×8-inch (2×20-cm) freezer-safe dish and top with seeds and berries or your favourite topping.
Freeze for about 2½ hours, then take out and slice.
This can melt fairly fast, it is best to eat fairly soon after removing from the freezer.
