This simple yet totally decadent raw chocolate fudge will satisfy any chocolate craving, without the sugar high. Full of dietary fibre with plenty of healthy fats, this tea-time treat is beneficial for supporting bowel and heart health. Pistachios are a great source of dietary fibre and act as a prebiotic, helping feed and enhance the growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract.
You will also get a dose of calcium and protein in this fudge to help promote strong healthy bones, and magnesium and B vitamins to support healthy energy levels. Coconut oil has been found to be a thermogenic food, which means it helps boost your metabolism and increases fat burning. The healthy saturated fats found in coconut oil are easily taken into the cells to be used as energy, as well as helping improve brain function and memory.
