Wanted to share my first attempt at a RAW Dessert. This was probably the easiest thing to whip up, and did not call for any crazy gadgets. (Not that I mind gadgets, but sometimes you just want ease and simplicity.)
Recipe was taken from RAWvolution, and called for raw walnuts, unsweetened shredded coconut, agave nectar and carob powder. That’s it! Unfortunately, I did not have raw walnuts on hand, so I used what I had. I’m trying this new thing where I use the food I have, even if it’s not exactly what the recipe calls for. I know, it revolutionary! j/k
Now, I will say, even though this is a tasty, satisfying treat… it doesn’t take the place of REAL fudge. That’s OK though, I like knowing it’s good for me! The texture may not please everyone, but those who enjoy coconut would probably like it. I’m wondering, also, if my non-RAW walnuts changed the texture and moistness of the recipe. In the book photo, it appeared much wetter than what I ended up with. I added a splash of Thai Coconut Water to help with the texture. Seemed to do the trick!
As the book suggested, I froze the mixture on a cookie sheet for about 20-30 minutes to make it a harder consistency that I could slice through. Worked like a charm! I placed the extra pieces of fudge in a freezer container. I’m assuming that is alright and will keep well. We will see!
