Banana Freezer Frudge

Merry Christmas!

I hope you had such a great holiday!   I had an extremely wonderful and low-key day.  After SEVERAL days of non-stop Christmas parties, my family just had a day of relaxation.   My kiddos were adorable opening their gifts from Santa!   I think they were tired from all the parties, because they both slept for three hours this afternoon!  While they slept, I took a two-hour walk outside and listened to my newest obsession, Serial .

Christmas Cookies?  We didn’t EVEN.   We had a large abundance of healthy foods the last few days.   LOTS of yummy chopped salads, healthy vegetable soups, smoked salmon, polenta, and veggies with dip.   My mom is awesome about cooking food that is healthy, but tastes amazing.

But Still, I am full.  Still with exercise  AND not eating junk.  I am Still sick of food.   ( This will pass, I assure you).

The weeks before Christmas, I was a little stressed, and kept wanting like a little piece of chocolate of something at night to wind down before bed.    I wanted something a little healthier and without sugar.  So I came up with this Healthy Freezer Fudge, only 3 simple ingredients!

Cocoa powder, bananas and cashews.  That is it!   If you don’t like cashews, any nut will work.  I think adding a nut to this recipe is important, it adds depth.

All you do is mix the ingredients in your food processor and mix.   THEN you use a cookie scoop to make “truffle” type shapes on a baking sheet.  I really love my Ninja Blender and Food Processor System.

They look a little sloppy, don’t they?  If you are looking for prefect shape, try freezing the banana first.   Anyway, after these truffles are made, you will want to stick this whole tray in the freezer. fudge7

Yum!  What a great treat to have when you are just craving something.

  1. Did you use an overripe banana for these like most recipes call for or no? Also, was your banana already frozen or room temperature?
    Thanks!

     
    • I would not suggest using a “Green” Banana. But, any yellow or brown banana should work. It depends on how sweet you want it to be. the riper the banana, the sweeter the fudge. I used a room temperature banana before mixing. You could use a frozen banana if you wanted your fudge to be in a particular shape. The room temperature banana kind of plops down on the baking sheet.
