frozen hazelnut butter fudge [a luscious dessert].

photo 2I will admit: I often feel like I need a little something-something after dinner. A little cap, if you will, to signal "thanks, I'm done". This helps me move along with my night and avoid the [far-too-familiar] descent into snack-land.

Finding a gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free option that truly satisfies can be tricky, but I am thrilled to have discovered something that fits the bill. It's an adaptation of the Detoxinista's almond butter fudge: easy to make, quick to set, and seriously luxurious! It has no added sugar: the coconut butter adds a lovely bit of sweetness that complements the bitterness of the hazelnuts nicely.

Mix up a batch of this and keep in the freezer for the next time a dessert-attack strikes. One 1" piece is rich enough to take the place of a whole piece of cake: enjoy slowly and mindfully, knowing you're giving your body some happy, satiating fats, plant-tastic vitamins, and a hit of antioxidants.
