Protein powder in fudge? Yes! This protein-packed healthy fudge will be a sweet treat to make for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day! Made with sugar-free dark chocolate (“Mom” prefers Lily’s Sweets), as well as avocado, Greek yogurt, coconut butter and Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake Protein Powder, this fudge is a nutritious option on a day typically filled with sugar and sweets!
Devotion Nutrition’s Protein-Packed Fudge
½ cup mashed ripe avocado (90g)
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (“Mom” prefers organic)
¼ cup coconut butter, melted
1½ teaspoon peppermint (or mint) extract, divided
1 scoop Devotion Nutrition Angel Food Cake Protein Powder
2 tablespoons sugar free dark chocolate, melted
Place the avocado, honey, Greek yogurt, coconut butter and 1 teaspoon peppermint extract in a small blender (I use a magic bullet).
Blend until mixture is smooth and creamy. Pour mixture into a bowl and, if you still have small lumps, mash them with a spoon until the mixture is smooth.
Add the protein powder to the mixture and stir until well combined.
Evenly spoon fudge mixture into 8 mini cupcake liners, smoothing down with the back of a spoon.
Let mixture solidify in the freezer for 2 hours.
Once fudge solidifies, melt the chocolate and stir in the remainder of ½ teaspoon peppermint extract. Drizzle melted chocolate on top of each fudge piece.
Let the chocolate harden then enjoy!
