Pecan Freezer Fudge
CATEGORIES: GAPS Nutrition Recipes Snacks + Treats
There is nothing I love more than speedy sweet treat snacks that will actually do your body good, even more so at Christmas.
Regular meals times tend to go out the window, we eat at any sign of hunger and brie and crackers and cake suddenly becomes an acceptable afternoon munchie!
But to me is part of the joy and fun, Christmas is all about decadence isn’t it? But I will be adding in some super nutritious snacks (and green smoothies) into the mix too to help keep my tummy full, immune system strong, mood happy and blood sugar stable.
I originally made this Pecan Freezer Fudge recipe for my Eat & Be Merry festive recipe ebook but to be honest forgot it was in my freezer! But I discovered it in my annual freezer sort out (along with many other random muffins, chocolate pieces and random things that I will just have to defrost to find out what they actually are!)
But here you go. Made in under ten minutes, will last for ages in the freezer and goes perfectly with a cup of cocoa. You can get creative with it and add cacao nibs, chocolate drizzle, raisin or whatever you fancy but I like these as they are.
Also you have just 3 days to grab your on copies of my Eat & Be Merry recipe book which is on sale at just £4.99 along with my Simple Green Smoothie recipe eBook as part of my 12 Days of Christmas sale. Both are fabulous foundation for one healthy, energised and kick ass New Year 😉 But hurry not long left…
So my fellow cake lovers, nutrition geeks or just those on a path to greater health, ENJOY this festive season! Let go of any crappy thinking around food, honour and nourish your body, eat awesome natural real food and give you self permission to rest, feast and look after your FINE self!
Happy Christmas folks & lots of love!
