Chocolate Rough Fudge

Chocolate Rough Fudge

Chocolate and fudge are 2 of my favourite things… add some shredded coconut and this is just like the old chocolate roughs we had as kids – just healthier. Remember those? Do they still sell those?

This is really quick and easy. Its also free from gluten, nuts, dairy, soy and refined sugar.

I used the Choc Coconut Thriving Protein powder from Nutra Organics. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s yummo. Great for smoothies, desserts, milkshakes, bliss balls or as you have it fudge. You could also replace with cacao or carob.

Why do I recommend Thriving Protein Powder? I’ve never really been a fan of any protein powders because the ones I had tried had tasted chemically and yuck. I tried this one because I heard some great feedback about it. Then I checked out the ingredients and realised how nutritious it was. To top that off, it was allergy friendly!! So, I realised I could give it to my little man safely.

With such a limited diet, I’m always keen to boost his nutrition wherever I can. This power packed protein powder contains essential vitamins and minerals – iron, magnesium, calcium, selenium, manganese, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, Vitamin C, folate and zinc. It also provides a good source Omega-3 fatty acids Plus it is Sugar Free.

Of course you can replace the protein powder with cacao if you like, but you won’t be getting the added nutrition or the real coconut rough flavour as this delivers.

  • Brilliant idea to use a protein powder! I never would have thought of that in a million years. Thank you for the clever idea. Now, I must run off to bake some yummy fudge. Okay, I need to see if that powder is available here in the US first!
