Strawberry Milkshake Fudge

I was looking for healthy Valentine’s treat and came across this recipe on wallflower girl’s blog. It’s so delish!

I have only a few heart baking cups. But if you have heart-shaped ice cube tray (like the original recipe), you can make a lot of hearts and it would be nice for valentine’s… But I would say, this is good treat any occasion. It was a hit, even with my husband who does not care much for strawberries.

8-10 large strawberries, hulled
6-8 Tbl raw maple syrup or sweetener of choice, adjust it depending on the taste of your strawberries. This time I put only 5 Tbsp, and it’s fine and my strawberries not even very sweet. I like less sweet. You can taste the mix at the end and adjust it. [Warning!!! It’s yummy and addictive, not even when frozen!]
1 Tbl vanilla extract
8 Tbl melted coconut oil (if you don’t like the strong smell, you can opt for expeller-cold pressed instead of extra virgin)
1 cup raw cashew meal
2 Tbl raw coconut flour

In a high powered blender, puree strawberries.
Mix in the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
Pour in the melted coconut oil and cashew meal and blend until a smooth like milkshake mixture.
Add the coconut flour and blend again until the mixture blend thoroughly.
Taste and adjust sweetness, if desired.
Spoon the mixture into an ice-cube trays, silicone baking cups or molds, or chocolate molds.
Let it set in the freezer until it become hardened.
Pop out of the molds and enjoy!
