To me, the word fudge, automatically says sweetness overload. So here’s a healthy fudge idea that’s yummy and easy:
VEGAN STRAWBERRY FREEZER FUDGE
1. In blender, add 2 cups of frozen strawberries, 1/2 c almond butter, 1/3 c melted coconut oil and 2 TB maple syrup and blend until smooth
2. Spread mixture into 9-inch square parchment lined pan
3. Top with fresh strawberry slices and sprinkle with shredded coconut
4. Pop in freezer overnight and Voila!
Enjoy immediately or keep in sealed container in freezer.

2 tblspns flour
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups rice

1 can of crushed pineapples
1 cup of walnuts, can substitute with macadamia nuts

Pour out the can of chilled crushed pineapple into a large bowl, save the liquid from the can.
Place the dried cranberries in a pan on medium heat and reconstitute the dried cranberries with the pineapple juice. You can add water if needed. Sautee until plump and soft.
Chop the nuts into halves or quarters (based on how chunky you'd like it) and place into the large bowl with the crushed pineapples. Mix.
Place chilled cranberry jelly in the large bowl. Mix.
Squeeze an orange peel atop the bowl once everything is mixed for slight flavor of orange zest.
