Fig & Vanilla Fudge




100g dried figs (the ones I get are still quite juicy, if yours are very dry you may need to add some melted coconut oil or water to help bind the mixture)

100g desiccated coconut

4 medjool dates, pitted

2 tbsp vanilla protein powder

¼ tsp fine Himalayan rock salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon


Here’s what you do…


Blitz all ingredients together in a food processor or high speed blender until well combined, smooth and fudgey.

Press into a lined slice tin and decorate with extra coconut.

Freeze for 30 minutes or until set then cut into squares and enjoy!



I use plant-based protein powders as I can’t tolerate whey. Whichever type you choose, be sure it’s one made with real ingredients and no synthetics (unlike the ones generally sold for body building and found in sports nutrition/supplement type stores). I personally have used and like the ones by Prana On, Amazonia Raw and Nutra Organics, but there are plenty of other great wholefood options out there.
