Calcium Chocolate Vegan Fudge Recipe

Calcium Chocolate Vegan Fudge Recipe

This easy vegan fudge combines some of the highest plant based sources of calcium such as sesame seeds, figs, almonds and molasses to make a delicious fudge. If you’re following a plant-based/vegan or dairy-free diet you will undoubtedly come across someone that asks where you get your calcium from. A great recipe for vegan calcium.

One piece of this fudge provides over 35% of your RDA of calcium for a healthy adult (251 mg). For children 1-3 one square provides 70% of their calcium RDA. Also for children 4-10 a single square provides about 50% of their RDA of calcium.

Vegan and dairy free fudge high in calcium

There are many other plant sources of calcium such as dark leafy greens like kale and spring greens, oranges, broccoli, and white beans to name a few. So if you eat a balanced and varied plant-based diet it is easy to get the RDA of calcium.

Sesame seeds in their natural whole state are difficult to digest and most of the calcium is not absorbed as they often pass through your body whole. However in this fudge they are ground down to be easier to digest. It’s still a good idea to chew the fudge a lot to help with absorption.

As well as being high in calcium it also contains potassium, zinc, magnesium and a host of other vitamins. This is a cross between chocolate halva and fig and almond wheel – only the honey/sugar has been replaced with vitamin-rich blackstrap molasses.

If your food processor is not very effective at making sesame seeds dust then you may want to use a coffee grinder or a small jug blender to grind the seeds first. You can make this without a powerful food processor if you replace the sesame seeds with tahini. This is pulped sesame seeds but most brands are roasted so are often not suitable for a raw diet.

    1. Hi there, I’m using almonds as they have some calcium but any other raw nut you like will work well (apart from peanut).

    1. Hi there, no you would need way less – try following the weight instead if that’s on your tahini jar? If not I would say a touch under a cup maybe 4/5ths

    1. The calcium RDA and calories are there, for the rest you may want to import into a recipe analyser – sadly I’m very time limited

  1. Wait a min. How Long does this take to make? Need a reply fast because of a test I have coming up. Thank you.

  2. Having trouble to kick some calcium inside my daughter so definitely trying this tomorrow. Not sure if I read right but this is not baked? Interesting,

      Hi there, no this isn’t cooked at all – its a no bake raw vegan calcium fudge recipe. I hope she likes it, if she’s low in calcium a supplement might be a good idea

    1. Bastian Durward

      Hi there, are you sure you can’t find blackstrap molasses there or black treacle? You could use honey but it isn’t vegan and isn’t high in calcium so it’s not something I would use

  3. You say that black treacle may be used as a substitute for blackstrap molasses but would that have the same nutritional benefits?

    1. Bastian Durward

      Yes and no! Black treacle still has nutrition but it’s slightly lower in magnesium, manganese and calcium. It’s difficult to find out just how much less, some places say 10% and others 30%. But it’s still got nutrition and does have a less bitter taste. Hope that helps.
