Chill-the-Hell-Out Fudge

October 3rd, 2018 | no comments

This fudge is the bomb! It’s filled with chocolaty goodness from raw cacao powder (i.e. REAL chocolate) and sweetened with pitted dates. And—as the name so eloquently conveys—it helps your body chill out, while leaving you with energy and vitality! Two adaptogenic herbs in this recipe, ashwagandha and maca, are responsible for these benefits. Adaptogens are simply plant-based substances that help your body adapt to stress…even the stress that’s cooking without your awareness. 

Give this no-bake recipe a try this weekend! Slice it into squares, refrigerate in a sealed container, and enjoy a piece every day. I topped mine off with a variety of fun “sprinkles”: bee pollen, hemp hearts, goji berries, and cacao nibs. 

This amazing recipe originated from www.wholeheartedeats.com. Thank you for your brilliance Sophie!
