Recipe – UPDATE PDF LINK – Got Fudge? Recipes for the Holidays


tree_3How can we do without the fudge? I know my family has a favorite fudge recipe that is very difficult to stop eating. But this year will be different for John and I. I will be making two subs for the fudge. You will soon notice that once you have a healthy substitute, you will not be missing one single thing. Of course, it is a mindset you must decide upon. Remember, we are not thinking “I can’t have,” but rather, “I have found some treasures that I can have and enjoy every bite without guilt!”

Favorite Almond Butter Balls

This recipes is one my family has enjoyed for years. I always used peanut butter, but the Almond Butter is delicious and much better for following Paleo healthy guidelines. It is really simple to mix up, requires no cooking and provides a great source of protein. Kids like this one a bunch as well. I like to make a double recipe and freeze half of it. (These are good frozen as well.)


1 Cup Organic Almond Butter

1 Cup Natural Protein Powder (Shaklee Energizing Soy works well cocoa or vanilla flavor and Melaleuca Proflex 20 is also delicious.)

½ to 1 cup Honey – I generally try for using just one half cup honey but may need more to be sure the balls stick together well.

 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fudge

Here is the treasure also found at (which is no longer published). Thank you Brooke Thomas for creating such amazingly delicious “healthy subs.”

½ cup 100% pure maple syrup
¼ cup coconut oil
2/3 cup cacao powder

Mix all ingredients in a high-speed blender until well combined. Pour into a glass dish or mini cupcake wrapper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. If you want to use it as a dip, simply pour it into a bowl and enjoy! If making chocolate-covered fruit, dip the fruit and place in the freezer for 30 minutes until chocolate hardens
