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!
