Low-Carb Peppermint Fudge

By on November 9, 2013

Perfect for Christmas-or pretty much anytime!  Chocolate is one of the healthiest foods around, which is why they call it a superfood. What better way to enjoy this superfood than by making the perfect confection for the upcoming holday?

Furthermore, if you follow the directions I give, you’ll have less than 2 net carbs per serving, as opposed to about 18 carbs per serving with the unhealthy version.

Low-Carb Peppermint FudgeBefore we get started, I just want to remind you that a healthy diet should *not* have the feeling of depravation.  Instead, it’s about eating the way we’re actually designed to eat.  Right now, the typical American eats about 150 pounds of sugar per year-and no suprise, diabetes and obesity are at epidemic levels.  Furthermore, we buy cheap genetically-modified food-like substances that our bodies don’t recognize as true foods.

Instead, we are designed to eat real foods in their most natural states;  non-genetically-modified, and without added antibiotics or growth hormones.

Furthermore, we function best in a higher-fat, moderate-protien, low-carbohydrate state with plenty of fresh vegetables to supplement.  It’s really that easy.

Obey these rules, and you’ll not only lose weight, but have amazing health as a compliment.

So, without further delay, let’s get to the fun stuff.

Low-Carb Peppermint Fudge (Serves 12):

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk (organic if possible)
  • 4 tablespoons melted grass-fed salted butter
  • 1/4 cup truvia
  • 1/4 cup raw, unsweetened cocoa powder; (organic and unheated if possible)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Here’s How To Do It:

  • In large mixing bowl, combine butter and coconut milk.  Using a hand-mixer, mix for approx 5 minutes.
  • Be careful for the next step so you don’t spew cocoa powder all over your kitchen like I’ve done :)
  • On low mixing speed, slowly add remaining ingredients.  As mixture thickens, increase speed of mixer until well-combined
  • Test the taste, and add more truvia if more sweetness is desired
  • Line inside of a small bread-baking loaf-pan with wax paper
  • Gently spoon the fudge into the loaf into the paper-lined pan, smoothing out so flat
  • Place pan in freezer for 30 minutes, or until fully hardened
  • Enjoy!
