Madeleine Shaw’s Raw cherry and chocolate fudge


100g almond butter (or any other nut butter)
100g coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
50g raw cacao powder
100g honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch sea salt
50g dried cherries

Serves 6


Put the nut butter and coconut oil in the food processor and mix for 1 minute or so. Sieve in the raw cacao, then put in the rest of the ingredients (apart from the cherries) and whizz for a few minutes until totally gooey. At this point throw in the cherries and mix with a spoon.

Scoop out the mixture with a spatula into a coconut oil-greased 24cm baking tin, then put it in the freezer for 30 minutes until firmly set.

Cut the fudge into bite-size bites with a sharp knife, then pop them back in the fridge.

This keeps for 2 weeks in the fridge.

“If you struggle to fall asleep, cherry can be a great sleep aid – and the raw gooey texture makes this fudge a perfect treat with a cup of chamomile tea before bed. Don’t forget the active ingredient, almond butter – it provides lots of vitamin E for your skin.”
