If you're looking for a treat that's both indulgent and nutritious, look no further than these Creamy Avocado Fudge Bites! With only three simple ingredients, these little bites of heaven are about to redefine your snacking game.
The Unconventional Combination: You've had avocado toast and guacamole, but have you ever imagined avocado and chocolate joining forces? That's the secret behind the creaminess of these fudge bites. Blending avocado, melted chocolate, and optional chocolate protein powder creates a luscious mixture that promises a delightful mouthfeel and an unforgettable taste.
The Perfect Trio of Ingredients: Here's what you need for these guilt-free indulgences:
- 6 medium avocados, peeled and pitted
- 3 cups of semi-sweet or dark chocolate, melted to velvety perfection
- 0.5 cup of chocolate protein powder
- A sprinkle of sea salt for that irresistible touch of contrast
- Blend the avocado, melted chocolate, and protein powder in a food processor. The result? A smooth, creamy blend that takes just about 2 minutes to prepare.
- Line an 8.5x4.5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper or use a silicone loaf pan for easy removal.
- Gently pour the avocado-chocolate mixture into the pan and use a spatula to spread it evenly. Picture the indulgence you're about to create!
- The anticipation builds as you place the pan into the freezer. Wait patiently for at least 3 hours until the mixture firms up into its fudgy glory.
- Your moment has arrived! Take out the pan, slice the mixture into about 20 equally tempting pieces. A sprinkle of sea salt adds an artful touch.
Balancing Act: What sets these Avocado Fudge Bites apart is the balance they strike. With a combination of healthy fats, protein, and even a dash of antioxidants from the dark chocolate, you're treating yourself to a snack that pleases your taste buds and fuels your body.
Storage Secrets: Once cut, these Avocado Fudge Bites can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Unlike traditional fudge, these won't become rock solid, thanks to the avocado's natural creaminess. Simply grab a piece straight from the freezer – no defrosting required!
