I’ve made a lot of coconut butter fudge over the last few years.
Once I figured out my master three-ingredient recipe I was hooked. I’ve since written numerous coconut butter fudge recipes ranging from real raw chocolate to festive cranberry orange to smooth and decadent maple pecan. With that said, this lemon coconut butter fudge might be my favorite. I’d been contemplating a really tart and tangy coconut butter fudge and lemon fits the bill perfectly. If you love lemon this is the fudge for you!
This fluffy fudge is made with four raw real-food ingredients. Make it keto friendly by substituting your favorite sweetener for the raw honey. Liquid stevia works well, especially with citrus and berries.
- Coconut Butter – the base for this fudge, raw coconut butter is rich and smooth, full of healthy fats, low in carbohydrates, and high in fiber. Coconut also contains lauric acid. Lauric acid is a 12-carbon, saturated, medium-chain fatty acid found only in mother’s milk, in small amounts in milk fat and butter, and in high amounts in coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Lauric acid is anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-tumor, and hormone and immune system supporting, among other health benefits.
2. Pastured Raw Butter – real butter makes this fudge melty and decadent with all the benefits of pastured raw dairy, like fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K2. Substitute pasteurized grass-fed butter if access to raw butter is limited.
3. Raw Honey – the enzymes in raw honey make this sweetener perfect for a healthy, easily digested, energy-boosting treat! If you want to make the keto-friendly version, use powdered or liquid sweetener in place of honey.
