This recipe is from “The Raw Truth” by Jeremy A. Safron. An easy dessert to make, with only a few raw ingredients required. The fudge is sweet and melts in your mouth. Eat straight from the freezer (not fridge!) and keep any uneaten portions in there too. Some supermarkets stock nut butters in the healthfood section. As for the raw carob powder, you are more likely to find that at a healthfood or organics store.
What you will need:
1 cup dates, seeded
1 ½ cups water
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 ½ cups nut butter (I used almond butter)
1 ½ cups raw carob powder
½ cup dried shredded coconut
Place the dates in a bowl and cover with water. Soak for an hour.
Drain but keep the liquid. Place dates and vanilla in a blender and blend until smooth, whilst slowly adding the water to create a creamy consistency.
Transfer the date mixture to a large bowl, add nut butter and stir to combine.
In another bowl, mix the carob and the coconut. Gradually add the dry carob mixture to the wet date mixture. Stir well.
Press into a baking tin, about 2.5cms thick and freeze for several hours. To serve, cut into small squares.
