Cashews and coconuts and chewy chocolate fudgsies
Dragons and handstands and bright crimson fall leaves
Waltzing into love and swinging on swings
These are a few of my favorite things!
So… “When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad!”
Adapted from the song “My favorite things” in The Sound of Music
What are some of your favorite things?
I’ve been finding new blessings to give thanks for every day. Like final shavasana after a hot, sweaty yoga class. Long inspiring letters from daddy. Twirling ‘round the kitchen floor with my darling. Biting into a perfectly ripe, juicy, sunshine-kissed mango. And of course, chocolate-covered delights, which I’m about to share with you!
Becoming part of this wonderful blogging community has also been an incredible experience for me. I am endlessly grateful for all the support and inspiration you give me!
So here’s to wishing you a weekend FULL of your favorite things, and some yummylicious fudge to start it off! xo
INGREDIENTS (makes two baking sheets full):
- 3 cups raw almond butter
- 2 organic avocados
- 1 cup maple syrup
- ½ cup almond milk
- ½ cup cashew chunks
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut + more to garnish
- ¼ cup raw carob powder
- 2 tbsp organic extra-virgin coconut oil
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- chocolatey bliss!
Blend avocado, almond butter, almond milk, maple syrup, coconut oil and carob powder in a big bowl. This is the basis of the fudge; all other ingredients are optional. Mix it up with nuts, spices or dried fruit, and share what you like!
Stir in everything else with a big smile and an extra-big scoop of blissful anticipation.
Spread the whole yummy mess onto parchment-paper covered baking sheets. Smooth the tops over with another sheet of parchment paper. Lick the bowl, of course.
Sprinkle with shredded coconut or gogi berries to decorate & stick in freezer overnight. Slice into squares or mini-hearts!
