Chocolate Protein Cashew Fudge

Ingredients for the Chocolate Protein Cashew Fudge:

  • Cashew butter – One of the best sources of monounsaturated fatty acids, essential amino acids, and magnesium. Super delicious, too!
  • Date syrup – Date syrup is packed in antioxidants and rich in rich minerals and, vitamins & fiber. It is my favorite natural alternative to artificial sweeteners or sugars.
  • Plant milk – You can use soy, oat, almond, hazelnut, etc.
  • Protein powder – I used Vitally Vegan protein to make the fudge satisfying and high in protein. I used their Chocolate Salted Caramel flavor. You can get a £10 discount with the code ZEROWASTE.
  • Coconut oil – Coconut oil will help the fudge with the texture since it is solid at room temperature and gets liquid on everything above that.

FAQ:

Can I use nut-free butter?

You can substitute the cashew butter for – sunflower seed butter or tahini (sesame seed butter). While it may change the texture and consistency of the fudge, it should work fine, too.

Can I use another liquid sweetener?

While I haven’t tried this recipe with another sweetener, I think it should work well with agave or maple syrup.
