The answer, of course, is yes. And the best part about this fudge is that it is super duper healthy. I made mine with raw ingredients, but it is not necessary.
- 1 cup of raw coconut butter or coconut oil
- 1/2 carob powder
- 1/4 cup of freshly juiced beet juice
- 1/4 cup of raisins plus 1 tbsp of water
- 1 tsp of peppermint extract
- Optional: crushed walnut
Just make sure not to use too much liquid because it will not hold up well.
- In a mixing bowl, blend the carob powder and coconut butter. (If you are having difficulty blending, either slightly melt the coconut butter or put it in a blender).
- Once blended together, slowly add the beet juice to the coconut/carob mixture and put it aside.
- Take the raisins and add 1 tbsp of water and blend it together in a small blender until it forms a paste.
- Add this paste to the carob/coconut/beet mixture. Mix it all up.
- Add a tsp of peppermint, and blend.
- Press the fudge into an 8X6 glass dish.
- Crush up some walnuts and sprinkle them on top as a garnish…or not…the choice is yours.
- Place in the fridge or freezer. I chose the freezer because I am impatient and wanted to have some quickly.
This fudge is really good and surprisingly tastes nothing like beets. I am not going to lie, this whole beet juice thing was an experiment, but I got it on the first try. It makes for the fudge to have a rich ruby color — perfect for the holidays.
I am sure you could add green juice in place of the beet juice to change it up.
Nothing says the holidays like a nice deep beet piece of fudge on your reusable napkin!
