Vegan Avocado Fudge Recipe
Avocado fudge is a tradition in grower communities such as Fallbrook, California where avocados trees are plentiful in backyards, front yards, and just about everywhere you look. This avocado fudge recipe is rich and creamy, yet dairy-free and suitable for vegans as long as you use a vegan margarine.

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado, ripened
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preparation:

In a medium sized saucepan, melt the margarine over low heat.

Once margarine is melted, puree with avocado in food processor or blender until perfectly smooth. Be sure there are no chunks of avocado left!

Return mixture to saucepan over very low heat and aff the rest of the ingredients,except the walnuts, adding the powdered sugar a portion at a time.

Once all the sugar has been added, the mixture should be thick. Add walnuts if desired, and transfer to a loaf pan. Refrigerate until firm. Now, be patient! If you don't let it firm up, you won't be able to slice it up into squares.

Substitution Ideas, Guest Try

I saw this recipe and thought the avocado was a great idea, but felt inclined to substitute all the icing sugar. Mine are more like brownies - I kept the cocoa, vanilla, margarine (used only 2 tbs), avocado but substituted a banana, almond butter and a few squirts of honey for the icing sugar. OMG, they are so good, and thank you for the avocado suggestion.
