Coco-nutty Fudge

Everyone has one of those friends who is really good at making a healthier version of everything. My friend Lauren from Lithe Method makes a healthy lifestyle part of her job and is always coming up with creative solutions for a sweet treat. I had some of this fudge she made and couldn't get enough. The best part is all of the fats are really good for you and come from just nuts and coconuts. So, here's a recipe for what I like to call "Coco-nutty Chocolate Fudge".

Coco-nutty Chocolate Fudge (adapted from Lauren's Lithe Fudge)
Prep time: 10 min
Serve time: 1 hour

You'll need:
1 cup raw cashew butter (store bought or homemade)
2 tablespoons coconut manna
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded dried coconut (optional for extra crunch)
course sea salt to taste (I like about 1/2 teaspoon)

Here's how:
1. Mix together the nut butter, coconut manna and coconut oil until smooth (this is much easier if ingredients are at room temperature).

2. Add in the cocoa powder, honey and sea salt and stir until creamy. 

3. Transfer the mixture to a dish, lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap for easy removal.

4. Place the dish in the freezer, and allow the fudge to set for an hour before slicing and serving. Due to the coconut manna/oil mixture, the fudge will become pretty soft if it's left out for a while, so it’s best served directly from, and stored in the freezer. Enjoy!
