Soak 1/2 cup dates and 1/2 cup dried figs in warm water for 20 mins and blend until smooth. Add 3 cups of walnuts and pulse until finely chopped. Add 2/3 cup cacao powder, 2 tsp vanilla extract and a pinch of sea salt and pulse again to mix well. Press into an 8x8 pan, refrigerate for 30 mins until nice and firm and enjoy. It is high in magnesium and antioxidants.

Lately I’ve been trying to incorporate more superfoods into my routine.  Green superfoods like spirulina in smoothies. And brown superfoods like cacao into Pudge. Pudge is my fancy name for “Paleo Fudge.”

Cacao is a serious superfood. Some say it’s actually the most nutrient dense food on the planet. It’s higher in antioxidants and a great source of trace minerals. It’s also a really great source of magnesium—which is probably why a lot of us crave it at “that time of the month” because magnesium is good for relaxing muscles and getting rid of cramps.

Pudge! (Also known as Paleo Fudge)

Prep time

  • 30 mins
  • Serves: 12 to 24 pieces

Ingredients

3 cups raw walnuts
⅔ cup raw cacao powder
½ cup pitted dates
½ cup dried figs
2 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt

Instructions

Soak your dates and dried figs in warm water for about 20 minutes or until mushy. Place your dates and figs in the food processor and blend until they become a paste.

Add the walnuts and continue to pulse until they are finely chopped. Add cacao powder, vanilla and sea salt and pulse until well mixed. Press into an 8×8″ pan, or roll into balls and put in the fridge for about 30 minutes until nice and firm. (If you put them in a pan, you should cut them after they chill)

It’s high in magnesium, so it will help you relax after a long, stressful day.
