Low-Sugar Chocolate Collagen Fudge
Cutting sugar is always difficult, especially if you have a sweet tooth. Giving up desserts is no fun but with all of the health benefits of cutting sugar, not to mention the hope of losing weight, it makes sense to try to cut sugar. Luckily, cutting sugar doesn’t have to mean never eating your favorite sweets again! And chocolate fudge is definitely one of my favorites. Sweet, rich, and smooth, fudge is hard not to love and it always feels like a special treat. I associate fudge with summertime trips to small Midwest towns as well as Christmas Eve celebrations at my great grandmother’s house and it would be nearly impossible for me to give it up entirely.
This fudge recipe is every bit as rich and chocolaty as you hope it will be. With that signature fudge texture and indulgent taste, this recipe will make you think you’ve ruined your cutting-sugar resolution. The good part? You can eat this fudge and keep your resolutions! This fudge has no sugar or artificial sweeteners, just the all-natural sugar found in maple syrup and bananas. It also includes Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen which will help your body support your hair, skin, and nails and will also help your digestive system deal with a change in diet like cutting sugar. Traditional Tonic contains no sugar but does contain some healthy protein that makes this recipe even better.
If you’re trying to watch your sugar intake and you’re craving something sweet, whip up a batch of this fudge and keep it in the fridge. That way, you can eat a small piece whenever you feel your sweet tooth calling without knocking yourself off of your healthy path and get your daily collagen dosage without having to think about it!
