Easy Chocolate Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge

I was inspired to make a peanut butter version of Detoxinista’s Creamy Almond Butter Freezer Fudge.  And I’m glad I did because they came out SO good!  This recipe is super easy-no previous baking experience necessary.

Ingredients:

1 cup all natural peanut butter

¼ cup coconut oil, softened

1 ½ Tbsp of raw honey or all natural maple syrup

½ Tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp raw cocoa

4 ounces dark chocolate

1. Mix the peanut butter, coconut oil, raw honey, sea salt and raw cocoa in a bowl until creamy

2. Transfer the mixture to a square baking dish lined with parchment paper

3. Smooth the mixture with a spatula and then top with pieces of dark chocolate (I used coconut dark chocolate and it was delish!)

4. Freeze until solid—about 1-2 hours

5. Remove the fudge from the freezer and cut into squares

6. Store in sealed container in the freezer

Enjoy this antioxidant filled treat! Just remember to only eat a few (which is hard to do!) as they pack about 140 calories per square.

Notes: Just remember that this is “freezer” fudge so it will melt if left out of the freezer for too long and may not be the best dessert to transport.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake

A lot of protein powders nowadays are filled with synthetic ingredients, refined sugars, “natural” flavors (a big red flag) and artificial colors.  In my opinion, it’s better to use natural protein powder (like Hemp or Rice) and add delicious whole foods to the shake.  Whole foods and natural ingredients will not only provide amazing flavor, but will also supply your body with the nutrients it craves.

Below is a recipe for one of my favorite protein shakes—Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana.  I mean, have you heard of a yummier combination?

This recipe can be made including the protein powder for a post workout snack or without the protein powder for a late night treat.

It’s made of 100% natural and whole ingredients

1 Cup Almond Milk (or milk of your choice)

1 Tbsp Raw Unsweetened Cacao

1 Tbsp Raw Honey or Maple Syrup or about 4 Dried Dates (optional)

1 Banana (the riper the better)

1 Tbsp All Natural Peanut Butter

1 Serving of Rice Protein Powder (optional)

1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

4-5 Ice Cubes

Blend until smooth and enjoy!

*if your banana is ripe enough you may not even need the sweet stuff!
