The aroma and taste of a fudgy dessert have the capability to transport you to a whole new world. Here are some power-packed ingredients in this plant-based fudge recipe which will definitely woo you to make it:

Cacao is literally known as the “Food for the Gods”. It releases serotonin and endorphins in the body which are feel-good chemicals immediately familiar to anyone who’s eaten chocolate. Cacao retains all the good stuff unlike the chocolate you get on the market shelves: fibre to support digestion, magnesium to keep your nervous system healthy, and antioxidants to fight oxidative damage. Hence, you’ll be consuming healthy chocolate in your dessert!

Ashwagandha, a medicinal herb has long been used to help manage stress and increase energy. Some studies show that it also lowers blood sugar levels, improves brain function, and promotes muscle strength.

Maca is dubbed as the “Peruvian ginseng” due to its rejuvenating properties. It is a good source of carbs, low in fat, and a complete protein source that provides all the essential amino acids.

Dates are high in fibre, anti-oxidants, iron and can help reduce blood sugar. They impart the natural sweetness to the dessert!

Almonds contain healthy fats and are packed with protein, fibre, magnesium and vitamin E. They can also potentially lower blood sugar levels, reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, reduce hunger and promote weight loss!
