Fall is here!! Whether you like it or not, pumpkin is in season and people are freaking out as usual. I love pumpkin season because pumpkins are so nutritionally dense and so delicious! The fact they start to put it in everything doesn’t bother me at all because it is only for about 2 months then we have to wait all year for it to come back! But let’s be real, it definitely doesn’t FEEL like fall. It hit 92 in Orange County this weekend so it’s hard to completely jump on the fall train, but that just means we have to get creative!
Insert > freezer fudge. Cold desserts are my fave! I love freezing most sweets because it takes you longer to eat them too! My mom taught me this at a young age, always freezing those chocolate covered caramels so it would take like an hour to get it down. The perfect way to keep yourself from shoveling sweets – which – if you are anything like me, can be easy to do! This recipe took a little bit of testing but it turned out so delicious. If you are craving pumpkin pie this freezer fudge hits the nail on the flavor head! And it has all of my favorite things: dates, pumpkin, almond butter, almond flour, coconut flour & pumpkin pie spice! Super simple – all you do is throw them in a food processor, let it go and press it all into a pyrex. Just about an hour in the freezer will get them nice and firm, but the longer the better in my book. Now, go get yourself these ingredients and enjoy these beauties!
Combine dates & almond butter in food processor and process until it forms a paste. Then add almond flour, coconut flour, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and a pinch of salt and blend until completely combined. Press into an 8x8 pyrex pan and top with some sea salt. Freeze for one hour, slice and enjoy cold!
