Paleo Chocolate-Pumpkin Swirl Freezer Fudge

by | Updated: October 18th, 2019

When fudge comes to mind, you may think of sugar, butter and milk. Unfortunately, these are three ingredients many of us try to stay away from—especially those following a plant-based or paleo diet. But, that doesn’t mean you have to forgo fudge completely! It just means you’ll have to be a little more creative in the kitchen. This recipe, which calls for seven whole-food-based ingredients, hardly takes any effort and uses minimal dishes to prepare (that means less cleanup!). Prepare a batch and store in the freezer for a post-dinner treat throughout the week.
