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.

  1. Fudge + educational post! What a winner… I’m finding my beloved lard sneaking into more and more of my cooking. Time to up the coconut again, me-thinks.

  2. 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 (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.

  3. I so wish I could handle coconut!!

  6. They say we eat with our eyes as well as our mouths, and this recipe looks like it satisfies both. I can’t wait to try it! No surprise that it’s a reader favorite at the Roundtable. Thanks for sharing, Petra.

  7. Definitely making these this weekend!

  8. Are you using fresh berries? I only have frozen and think they might be a bit too juicy to work in this. What do you think?

  12. 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).

    This fudge is SO good! I could have eaten the whole batch in one go if I let myself. Thank you for this great recipe. I plan on making these again in the future.
