Raw Superfood Fudge

Ingredients

¾ cup raw cashew butter

½ cup melted virgin coconut oil (1/3 cup also works well)

6 Tablespoons raw cocoa powder (WonderCocoa is caffeine free and therefore cleanse approved)

¼ teaspoons organic vanilla powder

pinch sea salt

1 cup pitted Medjool dates

½ cup goji berries

2 to 3 Tablespoons white chia seeds

Instructions

Line an 8.5 x 4.5 inch class bread pan with unbleached parchment paper.

Place the cashew butter, melted coconut oil, raw cocoa powder, vanilla powder, and sea salt into a food processor fitted with the ‘s’ blade and process until paste forms. Add the goji berries and chia seeds and pulse to combine. For a smoother fudge, add all ingredients to a high-powdered blender except for the goji berries and chia seeds, and blend until smooth. Stir in the berries and seeds.

Using oiled hands, press the fudge mixture evenly into the pan. Transfer the pan to the refrigerator to chill until hardened. Once solid, you can slice the fudge into small squares. Store the fudge squares in your freezer or in your refrigerator.

Yield: about 12 to 16 servings

Tip: Make sure you are using soft, dried dates. Older dates tend to lose moisture and become harder to blend, especially in a recipe like this.
