Usually fudge is made of condensed milk, butter and sugar, but not this easy vegan avocado fudge recipe that requires no baking and tastes just as good as an original version. | ifoodreal.com

How was your Halloween? I ate zero corn syrup sugary candies. Zero. Could care less…But when it comes to this, I’m all in.

I love dark chocolate and I love fudge. Usually fudge is made of condensed milk, butter and sugar. But not this clean, vegan and gluten free avocado fudge. Full of healthy fats avocado and walnuts are combined with natural sweetness of banana, antioxidant power of cocoa powder and sprinkled with coarse sea salt for that mixed feelings taste.

A couple of months ago, I made Protein Fudge which I absolutely love! But since then my body can’t seem to digest whey protein powder and I’ve been meaning to recreate a non-protein powder version of it.

This avocado fudge is creamy, sweet, chocolate-y and salty. It satisfies my chocolate cravings I get after meals occasionally. Because it’s full of healthy fats, 1 piece is all I need to be happy again. You have to store it in the freezer otherwise it will melt and won’t last as long. And if you are not a fan of avocado, try my coconut oil fudge or superfood chocolate bars. However, if you are a fan of avocado you will love this avocado mint fudge.

There is another big reason why I love this fudge. Alex, like most men, doesn’t have a very good memory or knows his way around the kitchen.:) He always forgets to check the freezer for snacks and, like any man, he loves snacks. So, there is no fights about the fudge. I usually get it all.:) But we still fight for Green Smoothie. Don’t think it’s all roses in our house.

Avocado Fudge

Avocado Fudge

Ingredients

  • 2 small avocados, skin and pits removed
  • 1 medium banana, peeled (yellow, not too ripe)
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Coarse sea salt for topping, to taste

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients (except coarse sea salt) in food processor and process until combined and smooth paste/dough forms. Depending on your food processor, you might have to stop and push ingredients down the bowl and scrape of the walls with a spatula. Also try to alternate between High and Low speeds. You might have small pieces of dates left, that's OK.
  2. Line 8 x 8 square baking dish with parchment paper leaving extra flaps on the sides. Transfer paste/dough into the dish and press first and then level with spatula. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Freeze for at least 2 hours. Transfer fudge lifting by the parchment side flaps to a cutting board and cut into 12 squares.
  3. Storage Instructions: Keep in the freezer, in an airtight container for up to 1 month. You can stack fudge in the container by placing pieces of parchment paper in between.

    To be honest, I have never had fudge all my life… call me weird. I heard about it, but not try it. I am going to try this fudge when I got time next week and I will let you know. Thanks for the share.

      Not weird. I tried fudge once and loved the texture but not the ingredients. Since then I always look for fudgy brownies and am yet to find a good recipe. It’s my plan to work on one. And I also have never tried many things like Rootbeer, KFC or Taco Bell.:)

      Welcome to a healthy fudge world. Btw, I’m going to grab a slice of fudge right now. Nice it’s always available in the freezer. Where no one can find it. 😉

      You know, I never cooked with cacao. What does it taste like? Close to cocoa?

    Okay, so on hand, I have 2 LARGE avacados and maybe 1/2 cup (packed) dates. Suggestions? Could I use 1 large avacado? Could I substitute something to make up for the lack of dates? Thanks in advance!

      Yes, large avocado and maybe extra small banana and a bit of maple syrup or honey. As long as batter is thicker consistency and tastes good, use what you have. I assume you have all other ingredients on hand, right?!:)

    I made these and they are absolutely delicious. My kids thought they tasted the banana but otherwise you would never know. I love the texture as it comes out of the freezer. I made mine with organic cacao and not cocoa. Next time I think I will try adding the nuts at the end because they got ground up quite fine in the food processor and I Iike more chunky nuts in my fudge. I keep reaching into the freezer compartment … thanks Olena!

    Hi there ! This looks delicious and I really want to try it this week-end. I just wanted to know, as I don’t have any food processor I will need to mix it up by myself. But we don’t need to put something liquid to have a paste like milk or water ? Sorry for that question, I am a real beginner 🙂 Thanks xx

      Unfortunately this recipe won’t work without a food processor. It makes it into paste without any liquids producing creamy consistency. You can buy a cheap small food processor and make many treats.:)
