Indulge in this decadent no-bake vegan fudge recipe. The raw dairy-free fudge is filled with walnuts and goji berries.
The inspiration for this vegan dessert recipe came from a random discovery that walnuts have quite a lot of omega 3. I have always known walnuts contained omega 3. But I didn’t know that only a small quarter cup of walnuts can give you all the omega 3 you need in a day. It really makes me wonder why so many women do not get adequate omega 3 intakes when walnuts are so easy to eat. But unfortunately, I think the answer lies more in the fact that we have too much processed inflammatory oils in our diet. Which means it’s quite difficult to compensate with enough omega 3.
I’m thankful that I utilize walnuts quite regularly in many of my recipes, especially this dairy-free fudge recipe. But instead of hiding the walnuts in the base of my desserts, I wanted to make them the star of the show for this vegan fudge recipe. The biggest step for this dairy-free fudge recipe is to make your own walnut butter. Of all the nut butter you could make, walnut is probably the easiest.
Walnuts have a very high-fat content so they turn into butter quite quickly. I’ve personally overheated my blender trying to make hazelnut butter. If you can find store-bought walnut butter you are welcome to use that. But I have never seen any in the stores before. The rest of the vegan fudge recipe comes together relatively quickly.
I have probably overdone the ingredients in the base. But I love sneaking in as many little bits of nutrition in my desserts as possible. This includes hemp seeds for even more omega 3. You can definitely simplify the ingredients and make it work if you cant find some of the ones I have used. It has the most amazing texture and almost tastes like it has a hint of coffee in there. It’s a very creamy and indulgent treat. And I loved every moment of eating it because I knew I was getting loads of omega 3. I hope you enjoy this vegan fudge recipe as much as I do.
If you enjoyed my vegan fudge recipe, try making my no-bake vegan chocolate and rose tart. It’s as decadent as it is delicious!
