I created this recipe for healthy chocolate fudge drops as I frequently get asked for ideas to help people with sugar cravings. More often than not sugar cravings in the evening are due to habits that we have formed. This can be due to a number of things from feeling like we deserve a treat after a stressful day to not eating enough and still being hungry.
As a result, these delicious chocolate fudge drops are packed full of protein and healthy fats to give you an energy boost and a sweet treat in one go.
I’m happy for my toddler to eat them too as they have no added sugar. They are quick and easy to make and don’t require any baking! Making them perfect to make whilst keeping an eye on my toddler!
Not only are they tasty they are fantastic if you are breastfeeding to keep your energy levels up or in the early days of long nights with your baby!
Ingredients for Chocolate Fudge Drops:
Makes 20 (depending on size)
- 9 Medjool dates
- 3 tbsp Coconut milk
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp cashew butter
- 2 tbsp cacao
- Put the dates into a small hand mixer and blend until they are finely chopped
- Melt the coconut oil, then leave to cool a little bit
- Add all the remaining ingredients to the blender and mix until combined
- Roll the mixture in to small balls and place on a lined baking tray
- Refrigerate for an hour to allow the balls to set
I like to mix these up a bit and a great way to do this is to make with peanut butter instead. Simply add an extra tbsp of coconut milk and replace the cashew butter with peanut butter.
