Mint Chocolate Spirulina Fudge – Vegan and Sweetened with Xylitol

Mint Chocolate Spirulina Fudge - Vegan and Sweetened with Xylitol on a plate

A rich, decadent and refreshing fudge boosted with a layer of the seaweed spirulina. The only sweetener used is xylitol. This gives a cooling taste that works well with the mint and doesn’t leave your teeth feeling sticky after eating. A few cacao nibs gives a crunchy texture.

It will last for several weeks in the fridge, but mine is always eaten after a few days.

  • 200g block of creamed coconut
  • 4 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 1 teaspoon cacao nibs
  • 4 tablespoons xylitol
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina
