A 3 Ingredient Raw Fudge

Raw fudge is great for many different occasions:

• To satisfy the sweet tooth of a child (muuuch better than any commercial candy),
• you can take one after lunch / dinner to kick start your digestion,
• surprise and treat your partner with it, 
• let it be an exotic snack for your guests when hosting your next party, (raw food is an excellent conversation starter you see, everybody's got an opinion about raw food),
•...Or simply pop them in a cute bowl to keep by your computer, as I do :) 

Hi by the way! I've missed you. Lots. I wish all the best for you and your loved ones *as always* 
I hope you are enjoying summer to the fullest right now. I would, but the weather here have been everything but summer like. The intense raining in Sweden during june have beaten the old record from 1901(!!) Now let's get down to business shall we? It's Fudge Time!

The great thing about raw fudge is that you use the same basic technique to create them (using dried fruit and nuts), but the outcome can taste in a million different ways depending on what super foods you add, what nuts / seeds you choose, refrigerated or kept in room temperature or even the shape of them. Another great thing is that this is one of the ultimate raw beginner sweets that you don't have to have any experience to succeed with. Want it nut free? No problem, only substitute the nuts with pumpkin seeds or even shredded coconut.

I made quite a small batter as I tend to eat a little too much when it's available *can't get enough*, but if you want you can double the recipe!

The 3 Ingredient Raw Fudge

• 1 cup Dates
• 1 1/4 cup Pecans, Walnuts, Almonds or Pumpkin seeds
• 1 cup of Lucuma 

Pit and soak the Dates 5-10 min. Grind the Nuts or Seeds into a flour using your blender or food processor, put aside in a bowl. Make a date paste by simply process the Dates in a food processor and process until you have a paste (work with a spatula). THEN you add the Nut / Seed flour and Lucuma! Process some more and voliá! Your done.

Put some plastic wrapping in a plastic container and press down the fudge dough. Even the surface
with a wet spoon. Put into the freezer for 20 min, and then cut squares of them.

Tips: For a more "fudgy" taste, use pecans. Love coconut? Use shredded coconut instead of nuts or seeds and enhance the coconut flavor with 2 tablespoons melted virgin coconut oil in the batter (as I did in the photo below). Not so much into super-sweet fudge? Create a more neutral flavor by using half a cup lucuma and half a cup purple corn. Purple corn works great as a neutralizing "filler".

Enkel Raw Fudge på 3 Ingredienser

• 2  dl Dadlar
• 2.5 dl Pecannötter, Valnötter, Mandlar eller Pumpakärnor
• 2 dl Lucuma 

Kärna ur och blötlägg Dadlarna. Gör ett mjöl av Nötter eller Frön i en blender eller matberedre, häll i skål och ställ åt sidan. Gör en "dadelpasta" genom att helt enkelt köra dadlarna i en matberedare tills de blivit till pasta. Hjäp till med en slickepott. Nu kan du tillsätta Lucuman och Nötterna / Fröerna till matberedaren och processa lite mer tills du har en deg.

Klä en fyrkantig plastburk med plastfolie och pressa ner degen. Använd en blöt sked för att jämna till ytan. Ställ i frysen 20 min, skär upp i kuber och servera!

Tips: För en mer "fudgig" smak, använd Pecannötter! Älskar du Cocos? Använd riven Cocos istället för nötter / frön och förhöj cocossmaken med 2 msk smält virgin Cocosolja i degen (som jag gjorde i fotot nedan). Inte så inne på super-söta godsaker? Skapa en mer neutral smak genom att använda 1 dl Lucuma och 1 dl Purple corn. Purple corn fungerar utmärkt som en neutraliserande utfyllnad i söta recept.
