Do you know what’s better than pumpkin pie? Pumpkin fudge! Our version is vegan, rich and decadent, and takes less than 30 minutes to prepare.
You’ll notice that this recipe calls for both coconut oil and coconut butter. You might be thinking, “What’s the difference?” Coconut oil is the result of cold-pressing oil from the flesh of the coconut. Coconut butter (like other nut butters) is the pureed flesh of the coconut, including the oil. Both are used together in this recipe to give this fudge its signature creaminess.
Even though we L-O-V-E everything pumpkin, it is a food we keep off our plates during the cleanse. So that’s what makes this sweet fudge the perfect 80:20 treat! This is how we maintain our vibrant results from cleansing while still enjoying our indulgences. Learn more about our 80:20 program here.
With love and pumpkin fudge,
Yield: 20 pieces (one inch size)

⅓ cup melted coconut butter
3 TB. melted coconut oil
Sea salt to taste
Cacao Nibs (optional)
Finely chopped pecans (optional)
