This easy to make, 6 ingredient chocolate avocado freezer fudge fudge is super creamy and packs on a healthy dose of chocolate flavor! Enjoy these freezer-friendly fudge squares as a snack or dessert.
It may seem odd that avocado is used in the recipe (by the way, you would never know it’s in there if I didn’t tell you). Avocado adds not only creamy richness but also health benefits from healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. And since avocados are calorie dense and offer a good dose of fiber, you will feel full and satisfied after eating one of these delicious pieces of fudge.
Using protein powder in recipes always optional. Sometimes I don’t need nor want an extra dose of protein. In this case, you can simply replace the protein powder with ¼ cup cacao powder. Cacao powder has more health benefits than unsweetened cocoa powder since it’s processed less (cocoa powder is striped of nutrients during the dutch processing step). I also used cacao powder in these delectable no-bake chocolate almond butter marble bars and these yummy gluten-free dark chocolate coffee muffins.
