Keto Chocolate Fudge
I recently jumped on the Ketogenic Diet bandwagon and I have to say that not only has it been incredibly easy to stick with, but I feel AMAZING! My mind feels clearer, I have had the energy to do something active every day, and have completely cut back on caffeine with hardly any side effects!
It has also inspired to get back into the kitchen and make good things from scratch. I have been trying to find “healthy” dessert recipes, specifically chocolate, that tasted good and were easy. After a few tries and combining some recipes that I found out there- I created a simple recipe that is actually really tasty!
Keto Chocolate Fudge
time: 15 minutes
PER SQUARE: Calories: 96 Fat: 7 Carbs: 4 Fiber: 2 (net carbs: 2 per serving)
1 medium ripe avocado
8 squares (or 2 oz) of Baker’s chocolate
1 tbsp of MCT oil or liquid coconut oil
1 tbsp butter (grassfed & unsalted if possible) <– replace with coconut oil if dairy free
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 packet of Stevia sweetener
1 tbsp of Erythritol sweetener, then 1/2 to sprinkle on top (optional)
Himalayan Pink or Sea Salt to sprinkle on top (optional)
If you would like to add nuts, go for it! Just add the macros to what I’ve provided if you track them :)
Start by peeling your avocado and blending in a food processor (I use a small Magic Bullet) with the 1 tbsp of MCT oil or liquid coconut oil. You may need to stop and stir with a spatula every now and then since it is pretty thick.
Then, in a separate bowl- add your Chocolate, Coconut Oil, and Butter and microwave for 30 seconds and then 10 second increments until liquid. Stir in the Stevia and Erythritol, then add the blended avocado. Stir with spatula until completely blended. You should have a pretty thickened mixture.
Pour into your candy molds (I used these ones) or in a small baking dish- spray with cooking spray or line with wax paper to avoid sticking. Top with optional 1/2 tbsp of Erythritol and Salt. Put in freezer until hardened- release from molds and store in a freezer bag or container to enjoy whenever! The refrigerator or freezer for storage is great- depending on how hard you like your chocolate.
