I have been making my Almond Butter Freezer Fudge recipe for awhile now because it’s so easy to always have a well balanced snack ready in the freezer. Often times when we are hungry, we reach for the treats that contain simple carbohydrates in order to get our blood sugar to rise up quickly but really that is the perfect opportunity to have a snack with a different macronutrient like fat and/or protein. Ideally you should be eating before your blood sugar is so low that it needs to be picked up quickly by something sugary but you do what you can! I certainly haven’t mastered the art of blood sugar control and I’m a Holistic Nutritionist!
With the holidays here, I wanted to come up with a more festive recipe than my original almond butter freezer fudge. In this version, I added sliced almonds and a bit of cacao to make the flavours that much richer and deeper. Plus chocolate makes everything better so not going to lie, this new version is just as good, if not better than the original!
This recipe requires 0 baking time and can be whipped up SO fast. I love that it is:
- Keto friendly (by omitting or limiting the sweetener)
- Whole 30 friendly (by omitting the sweetener but note it’s not Whole 30 approved because it can be considered a “treat” but in my opinion, if you eat a clean diet and are coming from a healthy mindset then it’s fine to be eating this as a quick snack or treat while on Whole 30.) Side note: I’m actually thinking of doing my first Whole 30 soon but I will be tweaking some rules to make them work for me!
- NO Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Refined Sugar
