Keto Peanut Butter Fudge
KETO PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
This easy keto fudge has the nostalgia of a dessert while still maintaining the high fat, low carb ketogenic lifesyle. All of our keto friendly indulgences will be devoid of non-caloric sweeteners as these create a false expectation of sweet. Even natural non-caloric sweeteners like stevia and erythritol can drive insulin resistance and gut dysbiosis. After a few weeks on a ketogenic approach, even peanut butter, coconut and vanilla will taste remarkably sweet as your palate shifts to channel more savory flavors! Note: this recipe is not to be used during intermittent fasting as it does contain some carbs and protein.
1 cup creamy peanut butter (we recommend grind your own!)
1/2 cup coconut oil
4 oz full fat organic cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
Blend all ingredients in food processor or Vitamix until combined. Pour into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid. Allow to soften slightly before cutting into 1/2 inch squares.
Enjoy one square as at treat for sweet tooth cravings during ketosis, please note this cannot be used for intermittent fasting as it does contain carbs and protein!
