We all know that having a healthy diet can be rather expensive. I don’t know about you, but I spend around $4.00– $5.00 for just one fudgecycle that’s organic, vegan and dairy free.
Now mind you, it costs a lot less to make your own healthy dairy free fudgecycles. Plus, it really takes no time at all to make this delicious treat.
Oh, did I mention that these fudgecycles are by far healthier than the conventional types?
Oftentimes, a store bought ice cream will have unhealthy and unnecessary ingredients such as GMO corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup (GMO), more sugar, mono and diglycerides, tricalcium phosphate (Study: Food additive may fuel lung cancer), palm oil (Adverse Effects of Palm Oil) and polysorbate 80 and 65 (an emulsifier).
Okay, I think we should proceed to this amazing dairy free recipe. I could carry on forever about it but I will keep it simple. These dairy free fudgecycles are creamy, rich and decadent. They are ideal for a lazy summer afternoon or a refreshing treat when you return home after a long hard day. I make a big batch ahead of time so that I have plenty. That way, when I have the urge for something cool, chocolaty and sweet they are within arm’s reach.
Enjoy to your heart’s content.
