Guilt Free Fudge

Ok, so you’ve probably just seen the holiday fudge recipe.  While it is SO YUMMY, its still a bit higher in calories and sugar.  But this recipe is a guilt free protein fudge so you can feel better about having it on a very regular basis!  Its made with protein powder so you’re also getting some protein with it, and its low carb too! LOOK HOW YUMMY IT LOOKS! Warning–it melts fast so you’ll have to eat it quick (which shouldn’t be a problem!)  I adapted this recipe from Alyson’s at Nourished Fitness ….a great idea indeed!

Ingredients:
1 scoop Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Powder (or their Dreamy Chocolate would be awesome too)
1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 Tbsp of coconut oil (for a light tasting Coconut Fudge) or 1/2 Tbsp natural peanut butter (for a PB Fudge)
2 tsp chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (or low fat milk)

In a small bowl, mix together the protein powder, cocoa powder, melted coconut oil or pb (melt in microwave).  Stir until blended.  Add in almond milk and stir until combined.  Add in chopped walnuts.  Freeze until set (about 30 minutes).  Will be hard once it comes out of the freezer, but it thaws quickly.  Enjoy!

    The Whey Gourmet Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Powder has 2 artificial sweeteners namely Sucralose and Acesulfame-Potassium. Having chronic illnesses my naturopath told me these 2 “poisons” as she called them should be avoided like the plague. Also it has tricalcium phosphate which can have some very serious side effects. Would it taste just as good with the Naturelle chocolate version? Great website!

      I’ve used it with the Naturelle Chocolate and it works too. Its not as good, but it does work.

    omg! this was soooo good! i’d been afraid to try it bc the protein powder i have at present didn’t work well for the microwave brownie. i was afraid to make this and have to toss it! i’ve started a more strict training and nutrition regimen, and i was craving something yummy/sweet that was not going to blow it! very happy i tried it! thanks!

      So glad to hear it! FYI, if you aren’t baking the protein, then you can get away using more variety in brands. Yes, the protein brownies are much more tricky and don’t taste good with every brand.
