Blue~Raspberry Fudge (AIP & WahlsPaleo+)

Blue~raspberry fudgeIf you are on the Autoimmune Protocol, or just a regular human, this fudge is yummy!

If you are on the WahlsPaleo+, it can also be a secret weapon for your ketogenic strategy.

It’s the coconut fat that enables you to stay ketogenic while eating (relatively) more carbohydrates, and it’s this coconut fat/vegetation relationship that ensures nutrient density on the WahlsPaleo+.

tiltParing coconut butter & coconut oil with berries is perfect, as the coconut fat slows the rate at which carbohydrates from the berries (& coconut butter) enter the bloodstream.

Please take note: this fudge can actually cause you to fall out of ketosis if you load 3 teenagers, a cat and a batch of these into the car & go up-island for a fun-filled family Easter weekend and then your fun-filled family eats them all.

In that case, you will definitely need a coconut fat back-up plan. Or to be safe, make 3 batches.

Blue~Raspberry Fudge (AIP & WahlsPaleo+)

 from petra8paleoBlue~raspberry fudge

  • 1  cup coconut oil
  • 1 ½ cups raspberries
  • 1 ½ cups blueberries

Preheat oven to 250

Warm the coconut butter & berries in the oven in 3 separate oven-proof bowls.

Line a 12 muffin tin with paper muffins cups. Tilt the tray up on something sturdy and spoon the warm raspberry mixture evenly into the cups.

Leave it in a tilted position to harden while you prepare the blueberry fudge.

Whirl the remaining ¾ cup warm coconut butter, ½ cup coconut oil and the warm blueberries in a food processor until combined.

Un-tilt the muffin tin & fill each cup to the brim with the blueberry mixture.

Refrigerate all day or overnight.

  1. Who would have thought fudge could be health promoting?! I think even Terry Wahls would be surprised to see such a tasty recipe fitting into the Wahls Paleo Plus Diet.

    I love using coconut products not only for the taste but for the anti-microbial and anti-viral properties.

    Thanks for another tasty recipe Petra!

    • Hey, thank you! Dr Wahls actually does include a fudge recipe in her book. It contains raisins, walnuts & avocado, among other things, and is designed to help people who find they lose too much weight on the WahlsPaleo+. This blue~raspberry fudge recipe replaces my favorite carrot cake fudge http://catsinthekitchen.blogspot.ca/2014/01/carrot-cake-fudge.html (the creamy version without the vanilla or sweetener), as carrots are restricted but moderate amounts of berries are encouraged on the WahlsPaleo+. I upped the ratio of coconut oil in this recipe to reduce carbohydrates & induce ketosis.

  7. My husband is in love with this recipe! It’s his new favorite snack, and since it’s replacing ice cream, that’s a big improvement. He actually keeps these in the freezer and says their texture is smoothest that way – pleasing his ice cream lovin’ heart.

    • I’m putting some in the freezer right now to try that out: thanks for sharing that, Eileen! I’ve got 2 new version of fudge I’m working with these days including an avocado-lime blackberry version & one that is totally reminiscent of Peanut Butter & Jam (even though it’s coconut butter & raspberry).
