Meatless Monday Recipe – Almond Chocolate Freezer Fudge

11 Aug

Giving up dairy does not mean having to give up chocolate.  I mean seriously – I am human and female – giving up chocolate for life would have just been an unattainable goal to set for myself and you know I’m all about creating attainable and sustainable goals ;).  So I say thank God for companies like Enjoy Life Foods that make dairy-free, sugar-free chocolate that I can use in my recipes guilt-free and still  have them tasting delicious!

I came across this recipe on Facebook from one of the pages I follow.  Food Babe is an amazing source of information when it comes to the foods we eat here in North America.  She’s a whistle-blower on the food industry making us aware of all the hidden secrets these big corporations try to keep us from.  She does all the research so you don’t have to!!  Follow her page on Facebook.

In the meantime, why not try this delicious and easy recipe that is sure to cure your sweet tooth.  A one inch square of this fudge has just the right amount of sweetness, fat and protein to seriously satisfy your sweet tooth unlike a piece of traditional fudge, cake, or something overly refined that could cause you to overindulge in more than your share.
