This delicious mint chocolate fudge has no dairy and no added sugar. Plus it has spinach! And did I mention that how easy this healthy fudge is to make ?
I love this dessert – it is so tasty, and it’s actually good for you!
I’ve been looking for ways to get more spinach into my diet (and into my kids’ tummies). Spinach has a pretty mild flavor, which makes it easy to incorporate into other foods without changing their taste. But spinach is green, which sometimes my kids find unappealling. So I tried making mint spinach fudge, since it’s not too unusual to find green specks in mint-flavored food.
You can also replace the mint extract with vanilla extract in this recipe, to get a simple chocolate fudge flavor. Both ways taste great!
