Paleo Superfood Fudge & Fitness!
First, I gotta say a big thanks to Philosophie Love for the Cacao Magic superfood mix that I used in this recipe. 2 extra tablespoons of carob/cocoa/cacao may be used in place of the Cacao Magic mix but I love those extra yummy nutrients.
This recipe is SO fast, and will firm up in about in hour. Best of all, it's thick and creamy and super filling, so very hard to over-indulge (whew!) Also, it tastes extra good after killing it at a Sh'Bam class. I know, I know, dumb name. But really fun! It's a dance class my gym offers, which is similar to a Zumba/hip hop combo class. If you don't have access to a gym that offers it, pop in one of these DVDs; you can burn 500+ calories a class if you go full out. And I go full out! I'm that annoying person front and center who pretends they are the star of the dance team. That makes it extra fun, I swear ;)
